How to Allow Employees to Request Time Off

Our employee timeclock software, Time Clock MTS, now allows employees to request time off. These requests are communicated to the time clock administrator who can then approve or deny the requests and (if required) automatically create time punches for approved requests. This can greatly streamline the time off request process and help reduce data entry errors.

This Time Clock MTS How-To guide takes you through the process of setting up Time Clock MTS to allow employees to request time off.

Note that employees can only request time off when you are using the Employee List Interface of Time clock MTS.

1. Log in as the Administrator

The first step is to log into the Time Clock MTS Administrator program as the administrator and go to the Tools->Options->Interface Settings screen (see the image below).
