We do...as much as I would love this to be in Workday and not Workfront.

Also, we do not use Fusion, which would work wonders for automation on this.

We have a Time Off request with an approval process.

Once the Time Off is approved by the manager, I manually update the issue status to Approved (would be great if this was automated w. out Fusion)

The requester marks the days off on their Personal Time Off Calendar for resource and capacity puproses and so it will show they are off on their team's calendar.

After they take their time off, they add this to their personal time off calendar.

I have 2 Time Off Reports

1 Shows Time Off Requests

2. Shows how many hours they have off for the year and how many hours they have taken. Would need Fusion to show the remaining, but it's simple math.


Let me know if you would like to meet and I can show you the process and reports.
