Approving Overtime

When staff members submit overtime in WhosOffice, the request is sent off to their assigned Approver(s). Depending on how the overtime type is setup, will dictate what level of approval is needed (see Overtime Types).

There are two ways to get to a pending overtime request in the system, 1. Clicking on the pending request from the Dashboard under "Tasks / Notifications"  or 2. Going into the Pending Overtime area. Please see below on how to approve overtime.

1. Dashboard Tasks / Notifications

  • From the Dashboard under the heading Tasks / Notifications
  • Find and click on the required pending overtime request
  • Then on the left click Process and choose the required Outcome using the "Outcome" drop-down then depending on the overtime type set how much Lieu time to apply** and click Process.

2. Pending overtime area

  • From the overtime menu click Pending Overtime
  • Using the search filters on the left, find the required pending request.
  • Then in line with that request on the right click View
  • On the left click Process and choose the required Outcome using the "Outcome" drop-down
  • Then depending on the overtime type set how much Lieu time to apply** and click Process

An Email will then be sent out to both the Staff Member and Approver on the decision given for that request*.

*If the overtime type is set to require further approval than just one approver, you will be notified on the email that it has been sent for further approval.

**Overtime types can be setup to either give back paid time or time in lieu, when you are approving the request you have the option to set how much lieu time is granted.
