  3. The "Day Type" will be set to Vacation. Change this if appropriate (Sick Leave, Overtime Request, etc.).

Supervisor: Approving time off requests

  1. If you are a supervisor you will receive an email message when one of your reports requests time off. There is a link in the message to click. Log in as above.
  2. Click "Approval Requests" on the side bar Approval Requests
  3. You will see a list of bookings waiting for your approval. Click "Process" next to the first one to view the details including any comments and the history of this request. The system treats multiple days as separate items so that you can accept/reject days individually.
