What is vacation Rule?
A vacation rule in fusion is simply a rule or setup that allows you to reassign or delegate all your system notifications to anyone else within the organization. Though it is known as vacation rule, you are not restricted to use it only when you are on vacation. There is no system validation with your absence. You can setup vacation rule at any point of time when you feel you will not have access to your application and want to reassign/delegate your FYI and FYA notifications so that approval process still moves in your absence.
» Just remember in fusion vacation rules are not executed for ToDo tasks.
