I receive too often this request (from my sister this week;-):
Can I create something in SharePoint to let my colleagues log their own holiday so that I can later export that list to Excel ?
So here is a quick video with step I made, following this should give you just that.
Add to this the out-of-the-box SharePoint Alerts and you will receive a notification each time a new leave is registered.
Nothing much to it, no workflow approval plugged-in, but nice and simple SharePoint OOB No-Code solution that is quite often overlooked.
(sorry for the Audio which is not great, as I said, it’s a quick and dirty tip)
