Approval Path 

The Approval Path lets you decide how managers will have to approve time-off requests. By default, any managers of this user approving will actually approve the request. You can pick from 3 different methods of approval, which are as follow:
  1. Any manager
Anyone of the available managers for this user can approve requests. The request just needs one approval.
  1. X out of Y managers
A certain number of managers (X) out of all possible managers (Y) for this user must approve the request in order for it to be fully approved.
  1. Specific sequence
Managers must approve the request in a specific order before it's fully approved.
The order in which the managers will appear in the Sequenced Managers section will be the order in which the requests will need to be approved.
Drag and Drop managers from the Available Managers into the Sequenced Managers.


You can specify which managers this Employee/Manager will be managed by or who this Manager will be managing. When managing certain users, Managers will receive email notifications whenever these users request new time-off. Managers will also be able to approve/reject/cancel requests sent by these users.
To Add or Modify Employee/Manager select Edit.  

Balance Accrual

Time-off Balance Accruals is a feature which automatically adds additional balance to your users' time-off banks, at certain intervals. The interval can be daily, weekly, every X month, semi-monthly or every 2 weeks.

Banked Time

Below is this user's Banked Time information. You can transfer unused banked time to other deductible time-off types. Note: The following values are based on the current calendar year.

Service Accrual 

Length of Service Accruals are used to add allowance/balance to a user's time-off types after a certain number of years/months of service is reached, based on a company's length of service accruals. By default, each newly created users are not set up to use Length of Service Accruals.
Use the drop-down menu under "Service Accrual" to assign/revoke this user from having Length of Service Accruals.

Calendar View

By default, employees, and managers are only able to see certain users on their calendar, depending on which account option is selected. In this section, you can override the selected account option, and allow this user to view additional employees, managers, or even complete user departments on the calendar.
Users will be able to view the approved (and possibly pending requests) of these additional users on the calendar, but will not be able to see their details.
