What is delegation? This refers to the person(s) who will act on the user when they are away. They will then be required to carry out active duties (approvals) of the unavailable user.
Also displays information about the user(s) that have delegated their duties to the logged-on user.
Unavailability is used for when the user is not around and a RAR cannot be conducted. This would then in turn place a blank icon in the place of red /green smiley for when the user has no RAR created. See RAR status section for more on how the status is derived.
The period specified should include the day when the user was supposed to have his/her meeting to prevent the RAR from being marked Red.
Note, the unavailability only works for the specified period.
This is used to log the user out of the system.
