Verlof is a Web application for registering and viewing leave
information. It records hours of leave rights and hours of leave
within categories like normal leave, special leave, reduced
working-hours (ADV), and the begin and end dates for the leave's
period. The few rules imposed on the entries are mainly sanity checks
like "begin date is in the weekend". The act of entering a new leave
entry sends an email to the group manager and a copy to the employee.
The advantages of this electronic version over the paper version are:
there is a single information location (no employee-card and
mother-card discrepancies), questionable entries immediately draw the
manager's attention (with email), and various up-to-date views of the
leave history are available (total, year, and list). Verlof is a
Dutch-only application and a little specific to Leiden University.
