To approve Time Off requests:

2.   Click Edit next to the request.

  • The employee's time off request can be edited at this point or later if the request needs to be updated.
  • If the employee's time off request should be tracked as unpaid, mark the UNPAID checkbox.
    • This may be used when an employee is allowed to request time off when there is a negative balance, and the time off taken is tracked as unpaid. 
    • Unpaid time off does not subtract hours from the employee's paid-time off balance. 
  • The STOP ACCRUAL? option is used typically when an employee requests a Leave of Absence. 
    • Employees, in many cases, should not accrue time off when on leave. 
    • The STOP ACCRUAL? option stops accruals from all policies, in addition to the policy type the employee has requested. 
  •   If the employee cancels their time off request HR Managers, Managers, or Company Administrators can change the STATUS to Canceled. 
  •  The OPTIONAL MESSAGE TO EMPLOYEE is included in an email alert sent to the employee as soon as the time off request STATUS has been updated and saved.
