What Are Leave Requests?
Leave requests are any time an employee needs to request an absence from their regular work schedule. Some leave requests are prepared for and planned in advance, like vacation and PTO requests, and others are more last minute, like sick days or unexpected emergencies. For both kinds of time off, employees need a fast and easy way to submit requests, see results, and to keep coworkers and leaders informed.
Struggles Scheduling Leave
In order to take time off, you first have to know how much leave you have. But employees in all kinds of organizations struggle to know their exact hours, especially when time is divided into different categories like sick days, personal holidays, and unstructured PTO. Even if you do know your hours, submitting time-off requests typically involves tracking down a manager or HR representative to file a form and then waiting for them to process the information. These time-consuming tasks make it hard for workers to easily plan for days off and are especially stressful in unexpected or emergency situations.
I know coworkers who work remotely or in the field really love being able to use the iPhone and the Android app to stay connected and send in requests at any time.

How to Create Trackers and Forms:
Trackers and forms save time, simplify data management, and improve overall organization by collecting, storing, and analyzing information. To create a new tracker, first visit the department, group or team area where you want your tracker to be.
Be sure that forms and trackers are enabled in the area and then select the trackers option from the left-hand navigation bar.
Next, select ‘new’ to start a new tracker and choose from either a wide variety of available templates or start from scratch with a blank tracker.
Add and remove content however you need until you're ready to publish.
Once a tracker is published, users can easily input or view data at any time, and submissions are collected and organized all in one place.
To create a new form for your tracker, select the associated tracker and then chose the 'tracker tools' button.
Choose the 'create new form' button from the drop down menu. From here you can name your associated form, change details, work from detailed templates, or create something completely new.
Whenever your form is filled out and submitted, the results will automatically be sent directly to the associated tracker.
