Reviewing a time off request

Real time insight into employee time off

Administrators and managers can see upcoming employee availability and make better scheduling decisions, while employees can view how much time off they’ve accrued or used.

Integration with Google Calendar, iCal and Outlook

It’s also easy to define company-wide holidays and set up a time off calendar to share with everyone through apps like Google, iCal and Outlook, that are integrated into your Zenefits dashboard.


View when your employees have time off

In-sync employee data

The Time Off app shares data with other Zenefits apps, including Payroll and Time & Attendance. Those apps return the favor by pushing updates to Time Off. So new hires are added to the correct time off policy, and when employees leave, accrued but unused time off is calculated and included in their final paycheck.

Prepackaged vacation policy


“Our employees love it. They have a place to go to to request PTO, and it also gives us visibility into how much time employees are taking off.”

Tope Awotona, CEO, Calendly

“It's super simple (to request time off). I can go in there, put exactly how much time I want off, exactly why and it shoots it right over to my manager for approval. I get notified when it's approved. There's no back and forth or anything.”

Megan Shehan, Principal Account Manager, Elev8 Hire Solutions

“I can easily look and figure out how many days I have left off. There's no hunting it down or having to wait on a person to respond and let you know what you have off. It's all right there.”

Megan Shehan, Principal Account Manager, Elev8 Hire Solutions

“The feature that's made the biggest improvement in the lives of our teachers has been PTO tracking. Before, it was all paper-based and papers were getting lost, which led to last minute scrambles to get substitute teachers in. Now it's a fully streamlined process. ”

Tim Cailloux, Treasurer & CFO, ChatHills Charter School
