Attendance Settings


Implementing a reliability request system allows employees to submit attendance issues, providing several advantages for the company. Firstly, it promotes transparency and open communication between employees and management, fostering a positive work environment. It enables employees to report unexpected attendance challenges promptly, allowing the company to address and accommodate unforeseen circumstances effectively. This system contributes to a fair and understanding workplace culture, demonstrating the company's commitment to supporting its workforce. Moreover, by having a formalized process for reliability requests, the company can better track and manage attendance issues, leading to improved workforce planning and operational efficiency.

The attendance feature for the Schedules Module within MangoApps allows users to submit attendance requests from the user portal, which will then be acknowledged by their managers.
