Approvers have the ability to approve or reject Time Record requests by employees. These requests can be found on the Approvals page.
Approvers will receive an email notification for pending Time Record approvals when it is their turn to approve in the Approval Group. For more information on how to set the levels of Approvers in an Approval Group, click here. The notification is as follows:
To view requests, Approvers will need to log in to their Employee Self Service accounts and click the Approvals icon in the upper right hand side of the page. If the approver is also an admin on the account, the Approvals icon will always be visible in the Top Navigation.
Click the icon to go to the Approvals page. The Approvals page will show all of the requests that are pending approval. Locate the Time Record request you would like to approve or reject.
To approve the request, click the icon at the right hand of the screen.
To reject the request, click the icon at the right hand of the screen.
To view the details of a request, click the request. The Time Record Details box will show up on the right hand side of the page. This will show the employee’s expected shift, the times they clocked in and out, any projects associated with the hours as well any hours that were previously reported. If the approval group has multiple approvers, you can see the approval chain here.
You can also click the Message tab to see any messages from the employee who made the request. You can also send messages to them here.
If you approve the request, the request will disappear from your Approvals page. An email notification of the approved request will be sent to the Employee who made the request.
Similarly, if you reject a request, the request will disappear from your Approvals page. An email notification of the rejected request will be sent to the employee who made the request.
