What is Leave Application?
Leave application is a request by staff to modify his leave record. Staff can apply for leave to be taken (leave entry), leave to be adjusted (leave adjustment), or cancel a previously approved leave application. Approver will then be reviewing the application and the resulting leave record will be created. When the leave application is approved, a leave entry would be created automatically.
Adding a leave application in Admin Portal means you are creating the leave application on behalf of the staff.

What is the difference between Leave Application and Leave Entry?
If you do online shopping, think about the difference between the order you placed and the goods you received. You placed an order specifying what you want. Your order is reviewed by the online vendor and finally, the goods is delivered. Leave Application is like the order and the Leave Entry (or Leave Adjustment) is the goods. In Backstage you will be performing different actions on them due to their natures.
