Approving or Rejecting Leave
Approving or rejecting a user’s leave request can be done by Administrators and Managers from:
The Approvals page
The Notifications Area
The Leave Requests or Overtime Requests page
From the Approvals page
You can approve or reject a request directly form the Approvals page which can be accessed from the Approvals – Pending Approvals menu item on the ‘Leave’ drop down of the main menu.
You can select which requests you want to approve or reject by ticking the box on the left hand side of the request listing and then click the ‘Approve’ or ‘Reject’ button as required which are located at the top and bottom of the list.
Clicking the Details link on a row of the approvals list will take you to the approvals manager details page which provides more information to help you make an informed decision about approving or rejecting the request.
There is information about the request and the user that has made the request. There is also the provision to display which users are on the leave during a selected period.
You can also type a message in the ‘Enter some approval notes here:’ field that will be included in the email and internal message sent to the requester when you approve or reject the request.
From a Message
When a leave request is made the approver will get a number of messages depending on the company setup and their preferences. This can include an email to their registered email address and Messages in their LeaveWizard Inbox which are available on the web app and the mobile app. All are similar and provide links to approve or reject the request. These links take you to the approvers page and process the selected action on the request.
From the Notifications Area
The notifications area on your main menu will alert you that an approval request is pending and clicking the notification will take you to the approvals page where you can approve or reject requests.
In addition, on the Dashboard sub menu, there is an Approvals button which will also take you to the approvals page.
From the Leave Requests or Overtime Requests page
You can go to the Leave Requests and Overtime Requests pages and approve or reject requests (and Edit and Cancel) directly from there using the links on the left hand side of the request listing.
