ARTICLE: Creating Group Leave Events

Creating Group Leave events is a standard feature that is available in the Create New Leave Request form for faculty and staff.

Clicking on the Single Select/Multi Select Icon in the Student Name field of the Leave Request Form will display the group selector so that multiple students can be selected for the leave request.



  1. You can select any group of students for the Group Leave request by clicking on them in the list of students below the Filter List selector by selecting any combination of the student group filter selections.  
  2. Searching for individuals is possible in the name selector by using the Search bar and individually selecting students, or you can use the Select All button to select all of the filtered students. 
  3. Select Add To List to move selected student to the Total count to be included in the bulk leave request creation.  Select the icon to the left of Boarder to expand the total list for ease of viewing who has been added and who might need to be deleted from the bulk selection.
  4. You can return to the Filter List and select a new filter to search for other students and repeat the process to add those students to the Total List.
  5. Once all students have been added to the Total list, select Done and to continue with the creation of the bulk leave request.

  1. When you return to the Leave Details for the leave creation in progress, you will now see the number of students for which the bulk leave will be created.  


  1. Once the leave request have been saved, Reach will create an individual leave request for each student selected and the normal permissions workflow for the leave type selected will be followed for each student. 
!  IMPORTANT !
Group Leave can only be used with Leave Types that do not require Hosts in the approval workflow. 
It is not possible for Reach to identify and collate the multiple host selections possible for groups of students.
