Approve Payable Time

To perform this HR-related task, you must first Navigate to the HCM Self Service Homepages.

NOTE: The Approvals Tile on the Manager Self Service homepage provides access to actions requiring supervisor approval (i.e. payable time, absence requests or overtime requests). Managers only need to approve once at the end of the pay period.

1. On the Manager Self Service page, select the Approvals Tile. If you see the Employee Self Service page instead, use the drop-down menu to select Manager Self-Service. If there are pending approvals, a corresponding number will show in the bottom right corner of the Approvals tile. If there are no pending approvals, a "0" will display.

2. The Pending Approvals page displays a list of pending approval requests such as absence requests, payable time requests, overtime requests etc. 
• Once a pending item is reviewed, appropriate action must be taken: Approve or Deny.
• You may view pending approvals by Date Routed, From, Priority, Requester or Type. 
• A filter button is available if multiple pending approvals are listed. To view additional request information, select the appropriate transaction or row.
