How Do I Book Time Off?

If you want to book time off, there are three options available for you in TribeHR

Option 1: Using the Green Leave Request Buttons on the Home Page

  • When you login to TribeHR, on your homepage there are two buttons that you can click to book time off.
  • Click the button that corresponds to the type of time off you wish to book off. (If neither of these types correspond to the type you wish to book off, select one and you can change it in the next screen)
  • Aside from the green buttons, you can also click on the corresponding Time Off icons located below the header on the upper right side of the page. These icons are also available across the pages making it more accessible for you to create a request.

  • This will bring you to the Book Some Time Off screen
  • The Type of Time Off drop down will default to the type that corresponds to the button you selected on the home page, if you wish to book another type of time off, you can select it using the drop down.
  • Below the Book Some Time Off Box, you will see a company calendar with viewing options, so you can see what days your colleagues have also booked off, company holidays and special events.
  • Select an end date and start date of your time off.
  • The total days off work will autofill depending on the number of days you select via the start and end date. If you wish to take a partial day off you can do this by typing in the corresponding amount. (For example, if you wish to take off half a day, you would input in this box 0.5)
  • If you wish to book off in hours instead of days, you can click on the switch to hours link and book off your time using hours (this is helpful when booking off half days, for example, if you work 8 hours a day, and you want to book half a day off, you can type in 4 hours using this option)
  • In the Message To Your Manager box you can type in any information that you think would be helpful for your manager such as the reason why you are requesting the time off. 
  • Click on Submit a Request, it will submit the request to your manager for approval.

  • Once the request has been approved you will get a email notification regarding the approval.
