LeaveCal by Finlert
Excellent Add on for Leave
LeaveCal is simple to use and an excellent add on for tracking leave. Worth every cent.
Our team really loves this Xero add-on
Best $18.00 per month spend ever. We pushed our Xero leave calendar's up to a webpage so that our staff can now easily work out who is at work, who's on leave on any given day. Most of them don''t have Xero logins so this tool was an excellent way to show them leave requests that are lodged in Xero.
We recently moved from having employee leave requests managed in an external HR tool to entering everything directly through Xero-Me which simplifies our HR/Payroll process for leave but left a big gap with employees not knowing when people were on leave or if it would be available. We stumbled on LeaveCal and it has fixed this gap, we have it published inside Microsoft Teams for everyone to see and be able to see all upcoming leave. Great options for being able to show/hide types of leave to maintain confidentiality etc. The team and Finlert have been super responsive and helpful when we've had questions. This app is a must for anyone managing leave directly in Xero!
Promised so much
Initial set up was not straight-foward but good customer service back up resolved these. The product appeared just what we were looking for and worked for our XERO Administrators. Rolling the Calendar out to the remainder of our staff continually fell at the first hurdle, calendars not updating for some & not even accessible for others. So we have given it a good go but cancelled our Subscription after 2 weeks.
Response from LeaveCal by Finlert
Hi David - As LeaveCal integrates with your existing calendar app, there are sometimes updates to calendars that are out of our control due to local settings. It's unfortunate that LeaveCal didn't work out for you but feel free to reach out if you want to try again.
Having recently started using Xero for leave booking we were struggling with letting people know who was about and who was off and I'd get asked several times a day if a member of staff was available. LeaveCal has fixed that and everyone feels better informed, particularly our support and project teams.
Easy to use, with responsive support
Dead-easy system to setup, and their support team was very responsive and helpful with anything we needed.
