Super users may give extra permissions to Approvers, giving the approvers more control over their staffs leave.

The three permissions available to the approver are;

  • No Extra Permissions - This is the standard permission for an approver, allowing him or her to approve their staffs leave
  • Add Staff Leave - This allows the approver to add leave (past, present or future) on behalf of a staff member*.
  • Add / Edit / Cancel Staff Leave - As above but with the extra availability to Edit* previously requested leave and also cancel any leave for a staff member.

*  The feature could allow the approver to give more leave than the staff members has remaining.

How to give an Approver extra permissions.

A staff member should be already set as an approver to enable the extra permissions.

  • Login to your WhosOff Account.
  • Click on 'Administration'
  • Under Manage Staff Members, click 'Manage Staff Members'
  • Either click on the Approvers 'Name' or click the 'Edit' link in the approvers row
  • Then on the left go to 'Staff Profile'
  • Under 'User Permissions', 'Approver Permissions' you can set the appropriate permission.

These permissions can then be used by the Approver via the Tools section of their WhosOff account using the Manage My Staff Leave section.
