Approval groups facilitate processes between management-level employees and subordinate employees. It allows groups of supervisors or managers to view and approve staff applications for leave, claims, and attendance

(Note: Only approved items will be added to the Payroll each month! Any items approved after the generation of the Payroll will be added to the following month’s Payroll)
