You can submit a request for time-off to your employer through OpenSimSim. This can be performed from your Mobile Device (method for the majority of users) or Responsive Desktop via a web browser. Requesting annual leave for a vacation would be a typical scenario for using the Time-off feature. After you submit your request it is placed in a "pending" state, awaiting a decision by your employer. Once approved or declined, you will receive appropriate notification of the outcome. Before submitting, you can also add a note to support your application. Full day and partial day requests are supported.
Note: After a request is submitted, (even if it is subsequently approved, but the date has not yet passed), you can choose to delete the request. If a previously submitted request needs to be changed, you must delete the original request and submit a new request. A scenario here may be that dates have changed since the original request was submitted. You cannot edit and re-submit an existing request.
Here is the process for requesting time-off using the Mobile App on your phone.
When logged in to OpenSimSim, go to the More Menu > Timeoff Requests.
All previous requests will be listed. Click on "+" to initiate a new request.
"Entire Day" is set as the default, (majority of requests will be for a full day). Toggle this off if a partial day request is involved, for example, "I only need the afternoon off". Set the Start date/time and the End date/time. Additionally, add a note to support your application if desired, (this is optional).
Your employer will be listed. Select and then Send the request.
Your new request will be display at the top of the list in a "Pending" state.
You will also receive a push notification informing you that the time-off request has been created successfully.
Going into the request will display the following details. If you need to edit the request, or it has been submitted in error, click on the Bin icon in the top-right of screen to delete the request. Your request will be removed and your employer notified. You will need to submit a new request if required.
You will also receive a push notification informing you of the outcome as soon as your employer has made a decision, (approve or decline).
Details when a request has moved from Pending to Approved. If you need to edit the approved request, or if circumstances have changed where you no longer need the time off, click on the Bin icon in the top-right of screen to delete the request. Your approved time-off will be removed, your availability is reset to "available" and your employer notified. You will need to submit a new request if required.
