NOTE: THIS ARTICLE DETAILS DELEGATION OF APPROVAL (OF WORKFLOW ITEMS) NOT DELEGATION OF ENTERING REPORTS (TIME SHEETS, REPORTS ETC.) ON YOUR BEHALF.
Finally the time has come, you’ve counted the days down, you’re going on Holiday – you can feel the golden sand in your toes and just about taste the cocktails on your lips. BUT, WAIT!!!!!

- All- all items are delegated to the selected worker
- Module- select a module within Dynamics 365 for Operations for all associated workflows (please note these are still slightly segmented so read the description)

Then set the start date/time and end date/time.
Now the last, but very important step is to make sure it’s ‘Enabled’:
The only thing to do now is to enjoy your annual leave (or training, sick leave or, or, or…)
