How do I view a company leave calendar view via the HR platform?

Available for the following HR plans: Standard, Premium, Platinum
Available for the following user access level: Admin    

A company's leave calendar offers a centralised view of all employees' leave, that will promote a transparent and collaborative work environment. It also helps prevent unplanned absences from disrupting work and makes sure adequate coverage while employees take time off.

  • I have followed the instructions but it doesn't work. No one can see the leave calendar in the desktop version. They can only click on individual days in the Swag app and see if someone is off on that day. Doesn't help at all with planning leave!
