TimeOff Request Profile– The TimeOff Request Workflow field will be pre-populated with a Migration Generated TimeOff Request Approval workflow. 

TimeOff Status -

  • TimeOff Requests that have been submitted by employees and are in Open or Submitted status at the time the workflows are enabled, will display as Open (Rejected) or Submitted (Rejected) and must be submitted again to be processed through the workflow process.
  • Once employees re-submit their timesheets for approval, the workflow process will be in effect and managers can then approve submitted timesheets via their To-Do Items, if their security profile is enabled to support To-Do Items
  • If managers aren’t using To-Do Items, they can still approve timesheets from the Pending Approval report under Manage Time > Manage Timesheet > Pending Approval.
