We would like to enable the Auto Approval of time off absences for certain senior managers.
Is this possible to achieve.
Whats the best way to have absences auto approve for this cohort.
You can either:
1 - Use the Permission Group as the list of managers, then in the business rule just set it as 'If Users Manager is in the permission group...' or:
2 - Use the Permission Group as the list of users, then in the business rule just set it as 'If User is in the permission group...'
If I am understanding correctly we need to add the person(s) or team of people who are applying for the time off to the exclusion list not the manager who wishes to have the time auto approve for their team.
Is there a way to manage this by maintaining a list of managers who want to allow auto approval for their teams time off.
I would do the below (assuming this is all absence types):
1 - Create a Permission Group containing all of the people who you want the absence auto approving for.
2 - Create a Workflow Business Rule and assign 'on save' to the Employee Time Object
The workflow should essentially be:
If logged in user is in the permission group created in step 1 AND is the logged in user is the context user
Then Workflow to no,
Else.... then you'd need to write the two follow up IF's that ensure eveyone else goes to time off workflow or admin workflow
