How to set cut-off times for leave requests in REACH

Leave request cut-off times and how to set them in REACH.

You can set Cutt-Off times for any Leave Types that help you to manage when students can apply for the leave.  
Setting Cut-Offs is done in the Leave Type Configuration screen > Cut-Offs Tab.



Cut-Offs can be Soft or Hard.

  1. A SOFT Cut-Off will allow the leave to still be submitted if the cut-off time is passed.
  2. A HARD Cut-Off will not allow the leave to be submitted if the cut-off time is passed.

Cut off types

Cut-Offs can be set to expire on a set date, to run on a regular weekly cycle or to operate with a Buffer.
  1. Weekly Cycle cut offs will close and re-open on the specified days and time set in the weekly settings.
  2. Specific Date Cut-Offs are ideal for special events or holidays that require leave to be submitted by a particular closure date.
  3. Buffer Cut-Offs will set a Buffer Period (in hours) which is a minimum time frame between the request being submitted and the departure time for the request (Eg:  Leave must be submitted >48 hours from departure time)

Your Cut-Off message

Set your Custom Message that Students or Parents will see when a cut-off is active as they submit this leave request.  The Message only shows when the Cut-Off is breached and it will display for Hard and Soft cut-offs.
