Awesome, exactly what I have been looking for and trying to create - such a time saver and its clear so no hidden surprise holidays from Staff. Just the solution i was looking for :)
3 years running i am using this - does exactly what we need it for. Thank you
Absolutely genius! I don`t know what I would do without your holiday/annual leave planner. Thank you so much!!

Here's how it works...


Employees book leave

Employees book their holidays and absences by using the simple online booking page, specifying the absence duration and type.

Absentia supports any type of leave, including annual leave, sick leave, and unpaid leave.

Holidays are automatically deducted from the employee's annual allowance by taking into account their work schedule.

Managers can book too

Managers can book on behalf of their team members of course. We also have a book for everyone feature, where managers can book for everyone in their team in one go. Useful for booking in team training days or company holidays.

Absence approval screen

Manager approves the request

The employee's manager will recieve a notification to approve or deny the holiday request, leaving a clear audit trail.

Employees can be set as their own manager for auto-approval of any absences they book, bypassing the approvals system.


Absences are visible to the team

Employees can view planned holidays and absences using the handy online calendars. The improved visibility of absences helps teams plan their personal holidays and team activities.

Privacy mode

Don't want to share all absences with everyone? Turn on privacy mode to restrict employees to viewing only their annual leave.

Sync with calendar

View absences in your calendar by connecting your Outlook, Gmail, or any calendar software to Absentia using an ical link.
