In Edays you can set a minimum and maximum notice period on your absence types, these are useful if you do not want users giving too much or too little notice when they book absences. 

You can also use this setting to restrict past bookings for example if you set Minimum Notice Period to 0 then users can only book absences that are on or after todays date. Furthermore, if you set it to -7 then users can only books absences that started 1 week before todays date and after.
