Approve an Absence

When you have an absence request to review, you will receive:

  1. An E-mail
  2. A Task in your Cezanne inbox

To approve / decline a request, either:

  • Quick Approve the absence from the e-mail using the Approve Now button (Vacation Requests only).
  • Log in using the link in the e-mail (this will open the task automatically).
  • Log in as normal and select the Task from your Cezanne inbox.
  1. Review the request. The Task includes the following screens:
    • Absence Request
    • Accruals & Adjustments
    • Absence Calendar
  2. Click ICS button to export the absence to iCalendar.
  3. Use Attach Files to upload documents.
  4. Click the Approve Request or Decline Request button.


  • The employee will receive an e-mail to notify them of the outcome.
  • Depending on how your system is configured, you may receive an .ics file which you can add to an external calendar (e.g. Google, Outlook).
  • It is also possible to approve a request directly from your Tasks inbox.
