Submit and Approve a Time Off Request

Overview Video

Start with the "About Time Off Requests" video above, then experience submitting a request and approving one.  Finally, review the Time Off Report.   Each step is supported by a separate video.

Note that you will need to be an “approver” for your requests in order to see the notification and complete the approval step below.  If you did not set yourself up to approve your own TOR requests, please follow the instructions under the article “Setup Managers.”
