Deny an Out of Office status

All new Out of Office statuses in Pingboard are automatically approved, but Admins and managers in Pingboard can deny upcoming Out of Office statuses. Admins can deny anyone's Out of Office status, managers can deny the statuses of anyone that reports to them.

To deny an out of office status:

  1. Click Out of Office, then use the filters on the left side of the page to view status messages of a specific type, within a certain date range, or from specific employees or Teams
  2. Once you’ve found the status you need to deny, click on the Thumbs-Down button to the right of the status message (you’ll have an option to leave a message explaining why that date doesn’t work or offer alternatives)
Tip If your company has Out of Office notifications turned on, managers should be able to edit their Preferences to receive Out of Office notifications anytime one of their Direct Reports creates a new Out of Office status. Those notifications include a link to edit or deny that status and send a message to the employee.
