You can use Genesys Tempo to view time-off requests with non-sequential dates.

For time-off requests, how do I know whether a date is filling fast, available, or filled?

When you log in to Tempo, the following cues indicate options and status:

  • No border around the date indicates that the date is available to request for time off.
  • A flame on the date indicates that the date is filling fast and the available hours are less than three times the requested amount. For example, if you request eight hours and the hours under the limit are less than 24, a flame appears on the date.
  • A red border around the date indicates a short waitlist; five or fewer people requested time off on that day. 
  • A red filled box on the date indicates a long waitlist; more than five people are on the waitlist after requesting time off on that day. 
  • An exclamation mark (!) on the date indicates that a time-off request is pending, but it violates one or more auto-approval rules in a time-off plan.
  • A question mark (?) on the date indicates that a time-off plan doesn’t exist or that it requires administrator approval.

What do the different pending messages mean for time-off requests?

Your request was not auto-approved because the configured advance time for waitlist has elapsed. Request is expired and the system cannot approve it automatically.

The request requires manual intervention from an Admin for approval or denial.
