Host required in Leave Request

ARTICLE: Host Required in Leave Request

If you have HOST in the approval workflow then REACH will be expecting a host to be selected.  This can be
  1. Parent
  2. an associated non-parent person (Host)
  3. Ad-Hoc host (if the option is tuned on in Config > Leave General)
  4. No Host necessary (if the option is turned on in Config > Leave General)

What is an Ad-Hoc Host?

An Ad-hoc host is a host that is not currently associate to a student and does not need to be associated to the student for future leave requests.
An example might be a visiting relative that might want to take a student out for a day or overnight leave but may never be used again for that student's leave.
In these instances you can use the Ad-hoc Host selection in the host selector if this is turned on in your Leave General settings.

Adding Ad-hoc Host details to the leave request
When Ad-Hoc host is selected as an option it is recommended that the host details are added t the NOTES section of the leave request using the Contact template.
