Creating Leave Alerts

When you set up LeaveCal for the first time and connect to Xero we'll automatically set you up with a Leave Alert. Every Monday morning you'll receive a summary of employees on leave for the week (via email).

You can configure Leave Alerts for others also, including group email addresses.

From the LeaveCal page select the  icon on the left hand menu bar.

Then press the  button

You can then add the name of the recipients or group of recipients as well as their email address.

Choose to receive:

  • Daily Leave Alerts - sent every morning with a list of the people on leave for the day
  • Weekly Leave Alert - sent on a Monday morning containing details of everyone on leave during the coming 14 days
  • Approved Leave Alert - sent immediately when an employee has leave approved


If you have an Australian Xero organisation, you can create calendars for any of the Employee Groups you have configured in Xero. If you want a Leave Alert for a different employee group, just create a new calendar by selecting the , then pick the employee group from the dropdown.
