We’re delighted to announce the launch of LeavePlanner v5 – the newest addition to the LeavePlanner family. We’ve listened to the feedback we’ve received from our clients and introduced productivity-enhancing new features and updates; which will make managing your absence management processes a pleasure.

Take a look below to see what’s new.


Our main focus when developing LeavePlanner v5 was to update the overall look to make it cleaner, crisper and easier for our users and admins to navigate.

To give just a few examples, we’ve updated the login page, the menu bar has shifted to the left-hand side for easy access and we’ve made the software screen full size. LeavePlanner is also fully responsive on a variety of devices, including tablets and smartphones, making it easily accessible wherever you are.


The moment you log into LeavePlanner, you’re presented with your personalised Leave Chart, a graph which presents your remaining leave allowance, used leave allowance and any upcoming leave dates.

There’s also a Quick Links section where you can jump straight to requesting holiday, submitting a sick leave notification, requesting absence and more.


We understand that not everyone has the same preference over the way holiday calendars are presented, so we’ve implemented a customisation tab where you can toggle between different calendar views, making it clearer and easier for you to manage staff leave.

The side tab also allows you to add filters, enabling you to quickly access the information you need through minimal clicks.


The User Admin section within LeavePlanner has been updated and simplified for administrators to update leave tasks, update leave allowances, add new staff members and more.

Again, administrators are able to fully customise their view settings to suit their preferences.

LeavePlanner v5 went live on Friday 15th February 2019. We hope you like it just as much as we do. If you have any questions regarding the new update, feel free to contact our support team.
