How can we help?

Set up paid time off requests

After enrolling your employees in a time off policy, you can enable time off requests to allow your employees to submit vacation and sick time off requests through their Gusto accounts.

  1. If you haven’t done so already, grant your employees online access so that they are able to submit time off requests.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click the Customization tab.
  4. Next to Time Off Requests, click Edit.
  5. Click Enabled.
  6. Click Save.
  7. We'll immediately send an email notification to your employees that they can start making paid time off requests. 

Once an employee makes a request, you can viewapprove, or decline the requests and assign managers to your employees to manage PTO requests as well. 

This feature is only available on Complete and Concierge plans—if you don't see the ability to set up PTO requests, upgrade your plan.
