Mass leaves is the process of giving one or more leave days to all employees in order to force them to go on leave.
Note that you can apply Mass leaves selecting any type of leave (Annual Leave, Sick Leave, etc).
In order to Block leaves, you must go to the “System” Module and to the sub-list “Leave Types”
After this, click on the leave type and select the option “Apply Mass Leaves”.
After this, you'll need to choose the date range from which the leave days will be deducted from the users.
You can filter the information by company, department, resource type, etc.
You'll also find a column that shows the number of available days for each user, for that specific leave type. In case you try to apply a Mass leave for a user that doesn't have available days, the system will prompt an error message.
To select all users at once, you can check the square on the gray bar.
If you want to remove a Mass leave, you just need to select the option "Delete Mass Leave", select the desired date and the leave will be automatically removed from all users.
When Mass leaves are applied to users, the days will be automatically deducted from the leave type you've selected.
The status of the leave will also automatically change to "Approved HR".
On a side note, supervisors will not be able to modify/reject this type of leave nor users will be able to delete them. Only HR is able to modify/reject this kind of leave.
