Apply for permission on behalf of your team member

There can be a situation where your team member needs to visit a customer’s site or log in late for any reason. Sometimes, employees might not be able to apply for permission themselves due to certain reasons.

The Permissions page in the greytHR ESS portal helps you to apply for permission on behalf of your team member. Applying for permission helps your team member avoid regularizing attendance for a particular day. The feature also enables you to foresee the team's availability and plan deliverables seamlessly. You can view Apply, Pending, and History tabs on the page.

To view the Permissions page, click Attendance > Permissions.
