This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.


Paid TimeOff (PTO) Request Replace your company’s Time-Off form with the PTO e-Mail message in this Outlook Add -in. The PTO function provides a template based on the paper forms, that most businesses use for requesting vacation and paid time off.

The template includes fields for entering the number and type of days that are being requested. The form will verify that the total number of hours corres­ponds to the total time in the days requested, account for nonbus­iness days and . Once completed, the template generates an email message with the requested times and days.
