Approving Time Off in the Mobile App
How do I approve a time off request in the mobile app?
Purpose: BambooHR's iPhone mobile app makes it easy to approve an employee's time off request. This help guide will discuss how to take action on a request and the associated notifications with the approval process.
Notification: Time Off Requested
When an employee submits a new time off request, you will receive a notification on your mobile device as long as you have notifications turned on for the Mobile App through your phone settings.
View time off requests
When you log in to the mobile app, you can go to your inbox to view all requests, or you can see a quick overview of outstanding requests on the home screen.
Approve a request from your inbox
Tap on a request to approve or deny it. You and the employee can comment back and forth regarding the request if needed. From the comment screen, you can approve or deny the request.
If you have Edit access to the specific time off type that a request is under, you can see the employee's time off balance as of that date.
Notification of an approved or a denied request
Once you take action on a request from the comment screen, you will see a notification regarding the update. You can add any additional comments if needed.
