Consider a leave application like a piece of paper (like a leave application form). Once you have filled & submitted the leave application form, if your manager has already signed (approved) it - how will you edit the leave application form? You cannot right?
Just the same way, once you have applied for a leave on sumHR, and if your manager has already approved it - you cannot edit it. However, if you would like to apply for another leave during those same dates, you can do the following:
- Ask your manager (who approved your leave), to click on the "Revoke Button" (appears on the same leave application page, after it has been approved)
- Once revoked, you can now Re-apply for another leave for the same dates, as per your requirement.
- Any leave which is not yet Approved/Declined - is considered to be in "Open/Pending" state. Till the leave is in Open/Pending state, the leave applicant (employee/you), can Revoke the leave yourself, if you changed your mind about it.
- However, once the leave has been Approved/Declined already, the power to take it back shifts to the Manager. Hence, ONLY the manager can Revoke it.
