Mass Creating Leave with Return HR Requests

The Sparkrock solution includes the ability to mass create leave with return HR requests.


Employers may need the ability to place some or all of their employees on leave for extended periods of time. For example, maternity leave or summer break. This feature generates the HR Requests, modifies the active assignments, generates a Record of Employment, and creates an assignment record for the expected return date of the employee so they can be paid for work on/after their return date.

To mass create leave with return HR requests:
