  • Additional officer field can be created and assigned in each leave type. This configuration setting will enable employee to choose any employee as additional officer while submitting the leave request in ESS under create Leave request service.

  • All the leave requests will be approved or rejected by the approving manager, means there are no leave types that would require self-approval process.
