Frequently a manager/HR may need to update an absence request for an employee (e.g. when they phone in sick). The solution should provide functionality for a manager/HR to update an employee's absence plan, and for conditionality to exist within a workflow for this to be auto-approved.
Many HR Departments will have a concept of the types of absence that form a plan. e.g. a Sickness plan may have many subcategories that roll up into the sickness absence plan. The leave and absence solution would benefit from being able to attribute sub-categories to a absence plan.
Welsh is a language which is supported as a Windows/Office language pack, but not currently available in Dynamics 365. Public sector organisations in Wales have a duty to not treat Welsh less favourably than English. They are unable to meet this duty within the current language offering.

Consider adding hover text to each of the buttons that display on the ribbonÂ when selecting the Personalize Form option. Â It will help user's understand the button purpose.
Add "working day" definiion to the system (i.e. working day = 7.5 hours) so users could add absence, holidays and other information in days/half-days rather than hours. This is very important for EU users.
At the moment, when employees are asking for 3 weeks of holidays, they have to add 7.5 hours in each line (15 lines) instead of just specifying "from" and "to" dates.
This has been entered in Attract but relates to HR
Two things I think would be valueable to add to Employee Self service:
1. Enable employees to edit their Tasks list by adding and marking topics or activties with alerts in which they might need support etc.
2. Possibly integrating with powerBi and Office365 to create productiity dashboards. This can be something like what we have here at Microsoft in MyAnalytics - this relates nicely to performance goals and skills.
The absence solution could be made stronger by enabling HR to restrict the view of certain absence plan categories to security roles. For example, some clients may not want to show all sickness category information to all users.
When selecting a drop down "dialog", it would be good to have the ability to add a new value to the list rather than requiring a selection from the existing values. This should be controlled by the user's privileges (user role).
