What is Time Off : A period of time when you do not work because of illness or holidays, or because your employer has given you permission to do something else.

Odoo Time Off Module : In every organization, one of the most crucial jobs is leave management. A leave management system, also known as time-off management. Each employee in your firm can use the Odoo Time Off module to seek leave, which is then granted by the manager or the appropriate authority. Odoo leave module gives the versatility to determine leaves based on the hours worked on the day such as Half Paid day or half-day leave without pay.  All leave types are handled by leave rules & HR policy according to the respective organization.

To control the leave management without a leave management system is a very tough task for the organization. So Odoo introduced its own Time Off Module to handle leave management. Each employee can create a request for leaves that are further approved by the manager or other concerned person. Also, here the manager can create leaves for employees according to his requests.
