Bulk Set Approvers

Setting Approvers in Bulk

The Bulk Set Approvers tool in WhosOffice can help setup a whole Groups approver in one go, as an alternative to going into each users profile individually. To do this;

From the leave menu click Bulk Set Approvers

  • On the left you can then choose who to adjust Approvers for, either Group or Staff.
  • Then choose a particular Group or a Staff Member
  • Followed by the function as either Leave or Overtime
  • Click Load Records

After clicking Load Records, you will see a preview of the information you have just selected. In line with each staff member you will also be able to see anyone who already has an Approver(s) setup on their account. Then on the right hand side of the page, you have the option to set an Approver to each of the staff members selected.

  • First, Select which Approver you would like each staff member to have.
  • Then select which Permissions* the approvers will be granted
  • You can then specify whether this approver will be Approver 1 or Approver 2
  • Finally, you can choose to override any already setup Approvers or only to those who do not yet have an Approver.

Then click Submit.

*The Permissions dictate what the Approver can do with each member of staffs leave. There are various options, as seen below;

  • Approve and Decline Only - Allows the approver to only Approve and Decline the staff members Leave or Overtime
  • Approve, Decline and Add - Allows the approver to Approve, Decline and Add Leave or Overtime
  • Approve, Decline, Add, Edit and Cancel - Allows total control over the staff members leave/overtime requests with the options to Approve, Decline, Add, Edit and Cancel Leave or Overtime.

To assign Approvers individually, please see the Adding Approvers and Allowances article.
