The Leave Alert notification feature in OrangeHRM allows HR to send an email notification to an employee or a group of employees detailing the users who are going to be on leave for the upcoming period of time.
Taking this example scenario, if the HR Manager needs to send an email to the Account Managers in Texas that includes the details of the employees who are on leave today and tomorrow in Dallas, this is how it would be configured.
The user can set the notification name to "Employees on leave for the next two days" and from the 'Send on" field, select Monday from the available drop-down options. Next, select 2 days for the 'Leave for next' field. The email subject can be set to "Details of employees on leave for the next two days".
NOTE: Please be aware that ‘The Leave Type’ will be included in the Email notification by Default.
Once this configuration is completed, the user needs to decide the set of employees to which the notification should be sent. From the "Send to Employees with" section, the user selects the 'Job title' as "Accounts", the 'Location' as "Texas" and the 'Subunit' as "All".
Lastly, the user must determine the employees whose details will be sent as part of the leave notification. So, from the "Include Leave of Employees with" section, if the user selects 'Job Title' as "All", 'Location' as "Dallas" and 'Subunit' as "All".
With this configuration, All employees with a ‘Job title’ of "Accounts" and ‘Location’ of “Texas” will receive an email on Monday with details of the employees who are on leave for the next 2 days in the Dallas office including their leave types.
