Manager's responsibilities with respect to holiday/vacation time #
As a manager it is your responsibility to see that your employees use their holiday/vacation time in the course of a calendar year and that they don't have any remaining holiday/vacation days at the end of the year.

Holiday/vacation leave planning #
An employee's application for holiday leave should be drafted by the employee and his or her supervisor before it is approved in the HR-poral by the supervising manager in the HR-portal.
Managers can use Paga to get an overview of all employees' requests for holiday leave, and can approve all requests for leave using this function.

Translator's note #
Remember that holiday and vacation mean two different things in American English, while being equivalent words in American and British English.
Thus, while someone who uses British English would take holiday leave, or go on holiday, an American English speaker would take vacation days - or go on vacation. The word "holiday" in American English means a legal day off for nearly every worker, such as New Year's Day or Independence Day (4 July in the US, 17 May here in Norway).
