The dormitory leave pass system, used in Philippine Science High School – Western Visayas Campus (PSHS-WVC), uses a traditional pen and paper method of filing. It has various limitations due to it being a cumbersome, multi-step, and unconventional method. This study aimed to automate such system locally through developing a mobile application that is capable of filing and approving leave pass, viewing records, and logging in or out interns based on the type of user. The application was created using Thunkable and Firebase. The developed application, Fygo, is composed of five different subsystems: login, registration, intern, dorm manager, and guard subsystem. Fygo was able to perform its intended purpose of being able to file and check status of leave pass (intern subsystem), approve leave pass and view log records of interns (dorm manager subsystem), log in or out interns (guard subsystem). Fygo could be further developed to accommodate offline capabilities and be customized base on the structure of the institution.
