Step 3. By now, you’ll have a window that pops up saying New Request. Options will appear for you to choose which process to begin working on. This list is based on the different processes your department or other users have begun already. Begin the process by clicking the blue START button.

Step 4. The next screen will show the requests in Tasks.  Notice how the user assigned to the task is clearly listed next to the Task. Choose the Leave Absence Request task to open the request.

Step 5. Opening the task will generate the Leave of Absence form associated with the process. Notice the fields that ask for information about the person requesting time off; there are fields for the name, date of request, the dates desired off, the reason, and more. Begin to fill out the necessary information in the form, including uploading any documents needed to support the request.
