Overview:

Each absence type created in your Edays system has an independent set of permissions that affect certain functionality and visibility of absence records based on your relationship to the users' absences you are intending to view. These permissions can be set at the global level, template level or individual user level with each level overriding the previous respectively.


To update an absence type's permissions at the User level please follow the below steps.

  • Navigate to Admin tools > Admin panel > Users > Users
  • Search for the user and press the edit button to the right of the correct search result
  • In the user detail screen, select the Absence types tab
  • Search for the required absence type and press the edit button to the right
  • Scroll to the Permissions section
  • Set each permission as required for My items, Reportees, and Others.
    1. ‘My items’ refers to whether the user can see their own information.
    2. ‘Reportees’ refers to whether an authoriser can see their reportees information.
    3. ‘Others’ refers to whether a user can see other user’s information.
  • Press the save button at the foot of the page.
