  • Click on Administration on the Left Hand menu
  • Then click on Manage Staff

  • Click on Profile on the left
  • Under Account Setup, change the User type to ApproverApprover with add leave/overtime, or Approver with add leave/overtime & edit/cancel leave (depending on what level of extra permissions they need)

For more information on the different types of approver, and the additional permissions, please see the article on [Different Approver Levels].
