If you want to track time off requests but don't want to force an approval step, Built for Teams lets you turn off the approval requirement for a given policy. Follow these instructions to do this:
- Go to Settings > Paid Time Off.
- Click on the policy you'd like to edit, or click Add PTO Policy to create a new policy.
- Choose No for the Do requests require approval? question. Note that the next question will ask you who should receive a notification. The system will send a notification even though the request is auto-approved.
- Save your changes.
- If this policy only applies to certain people, assign the policy to those people.
