Block bookings allows you to create a common absence across your organisation. This might be used for company offsites or Christmas shutdowns.
To create a block booking, go to Account > Employees and click "Block Book" to the top right of the screen.
Block bookings work exactly like regular absence requests so you can use the calendar to select the day or days to be booked.
Clicking Create Block Booking will create a standard absence record for each employee as if they had booked it themselves. It will be automatically approved and can only be cancelled by an administrator. If there are certain employees who are exempt from the block booking, you should create the block booking and then cancel the request for those employees to whom it does not apply.
