Rotaready makes requesting time off super easy. Requests will go to your manager for review, and you'll be notified as soon as they approve or reject. If you have a holiday allowance, this will appear during the request process to highlight how many days or hours you have remaining.

Request absence on the Rotaready app

  • Tap Absence in the navigation menu

  • Tap Request Absence

  • Select the dates to select the start and finish of your time off period

  • Select the absence type you wish to request

  • If you've chosen to book time off that Rotaready believes you'll be paid for, there's an extra step. Here you'll have to specify which days you'd normally be working. Rotaready will attempt to do this automatically for you, but it's worth reviewing as it may affect your pay.

  • Finally, you can optionally add a message for your manager to see.

Request absence on the web

  • Under the Home navigation menu, click My absence

  • Click Book absence

  • Click the absence type you wish to request

  • Select the dates to select the start and finish of your time off period

  • If you've chosen to book time off that Rotaready believes you'll be paid for, there's an extra step. Here you'll have to specify which of the days you wouldn't normally be working (if any), as these should be regarded as an unpaid day off. Rotaready will attempt to do this automatically for you, but it's worth reviewing as it may affect your pay.

  • Finally, you can optionally add a message for your manager to see.

Reviewing and cancelling absence

In the same place as where you'll request absence (outlined above), you can see your past, present and future absence bookings.

A request can be cancelled so long as it hasn't yet been approved or rejected; simply tap or click on it and look for the Cancel button.
