Indigo gives the facility to have an employee apply for leave on behalf of another employee from within the same company or the whole tenant. Mainly there are two options to do this.

Option 1

The first option to set this up, is from within the organisation chart. The difference from the previous option is that in this way the person applying on behalf of someone else will be that person above the group of employees in the organisation chart.

In the example above from within our organisation chart we can see that all three persons marked with a red arrow can apply leave on behalf of their underlying employees only. Thus now from within the employee dashboard of either one of these three, one will find a drop down arrow adjacent of the apply button as per below screenshot.

Option 2

The second option is to assign an employee from within the employee section. In this way the employee you select will only have the option to just apply for leave on behalf of the employees you select. There will be no other rights assigned to this employee. In order to do this you have to go to Employees > Select the tab 'Apply on behalf of' > Click on '+' and add the employees.

Once in this screen just add the list of employees you wish that the employee in selection can apply for.

So in the example above, employee with code 'A001' can apply on behalf of employee 'COYW01'. A practical example for such a scenario would be that in your company you have a receptionist and a cleaner. The cleaner doesn't have any access to a computer, but at the same time you have a policy that any absence requests are processed from within the system. So you would select the employee as a receptionist and assign her the rights to apply on behalf of the cleaner from within this tab.

So from within the 'Out of Office' widget, for both options above you would have these white arrows adjacent to the 'Apply' and 'Cancel' button and each one of them will give you the option to apply or cancel on behalf of the employees being underneath of you in the organisation chart.
