PTO and Vacation Management


With the BOR-Go PTO and Vacation Tracking module, both you and your employees can quickly and easily manage time-off requests and track available PTO hours.

Make sure to set a work schedule for the employee who is taking a paid vacation, otherwise the leave hours will not be properly calculated. For example, if your employee is taking 2 days paid vacation on August 1st and 2nd, then he or she must first be scheduled to work those days before PTO can be granted.


Requesting time-off (Employee’s side)

Employees can make PTO or vacation requests one of two ways; by making the request directly from the BOR-Go smartphone app or from a computer by logging into BOR-Go online via a web browser.

  1. Tap “Leave Requests” to open the PTO and Vacation Tracking module.
