Approving Overtime via Mobile

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

To approve a overtime request via the Mobile Application you can do the following;

  • Ensure that you are logged into your WhosOffice account
  • From the Navigation bar at the bottom of the page press "Overtime"
  • Then on the resulting page press "Overtime Pending Your Approval" (this will highlight a number indicating the amount of pending requests that require your attention).
  • Now press on the required Pending Request
  • This next page details some basic information regarding the overtime request along with any Notes that the staff member may have submitted at the time. 
  • Now scroll down to the bottom of the page, press the "Process" drop-down, Using the "Outcome" wheel, select either "Approve" or "Decline"
  • Then you might have the opportunity to adjust the amount of Lieu / Paid Time that will be granted to the Staff Member*.
  • You can then provide any Notes if needed.

By pressing "Process" you are submitting this Outcome to the staff member, who will be notified via Email.

After dismissing the on-screen confirmation, you will be taken back to the Overtime Pending Your Approval screen where you can action further requests where necessary.

*Within the Overtime Types you can setup either a specific Rate of Paid/Lieu time to be granted or a Lookup Rate at which Paid / Lieu is given back, you cannot adjust the amount of Paid/Lieu that is given back if the overtime type has a Paid, by Lookup or Allowance, by Lookup rate.
