As of version 1.9.9, two new functions are integrated - team requests and collective requests.
With the team request, a person with the role team leader or team assistant creates a vacation request for a team member if this employee does not have access to Vacation Manager himself at the moment, e.g. during a business trip or on vacation. The usual approval process is maintained.
With the collective request, one person with the HR role creates vacation requests for several employees at the same time without a deputy and without any further approval process. This function is suitable, for example, if the company has ordered company closures on certain days or vacation periods (bridging days, Christmas ...).
