Leave Module Administrator In Zoho People

In an organization, there could be a requirement for viewing and managing leave entries of a selected number of employees amidst a large workforce. To improve convenience and for focused management, you can use a specifically assigned Module Admin.

A Leave Module Admin has special permission to view and edit leave entries and for a selection of users tagged into “User Groups”. In addition, Modules admins can also view leave reports of employees within their user groups.
