Create custom time off reasons in Microsoft StaffHub

Important: Effective December 31, 2019, Microsoft StaffHub will be retired. We're building StaffHub capabilities, including schedule and task management, into Microsoft Teams. To learn more, read Microsoft StaffHub to be retired.

In Microsoft StaffHub managers can edit the time off reasons that show up on the schedule and on the app for employees to request.  Managers are able to add, edit, or delete time off reasons.

How to start customizing your time off reasons

Adding and editing your time off reasons is super easy. Once you log into your Microsoft StaffHub team on the web, go to the Team tab.

At the bottom of the team page, there is a section labeled “Requests”. You’ll see the default time off reasons we’ve added for your team that you may already use.

To add a new reason, click “Add custom option”. Type in your time off reason and pick an icon if you’d like. Don’t forget to click “Save”.

You’ll now see your updated time off reason list on the web, and now be able to assign time offs with that label.
