Add-on: More than one approver

absentify offers a More than one approver feature if your company requires its employees' leave requests to be processed by more than one superior. Keep reading to learn more about the functionality of this add-on to see if it fits your needs!

Select a user's approver



Without this Add-on, you may only choose the department manager to be the user's approver, or use the custom option to pick a different user to be their approver.

If you're not sure how to select a user's approver, we recommend that you first read our support article which will walk you through the set-up process.

Select more than one approver



Now that you know how to change a user's approver, with the add-on you can select more than one approver by clicking Add Approver under the custom option.



From here, you can also specify by how many members of management the request needs to be approved by and in what order they will receive the request.

First, select the other approver(s) from the drop down menu.



Once you've selected two or more approvers for the user, you can then determine in which order the request should be sent to the appointed approvers by clicking the arrow under Approval process.



You'll be able to choose from the following four options:

Linear - All must agree: Approvers are sent the request consecutively. All must agree in order for the request to be approved.
Linear - One must agree: Approvers are sent the request consecutively. One must agree in order for the request to be approved.
Parallel - All must agree: Approvers are sent the request at the same time. All must agree in order for the request to be approved.
Parallel - One must agree: Approvers are sent the request at the same time. One must agree in order for the request to be approved.



Select the one that fits your needs and click Save to save your changes.

Please note that all appointed approvers can see the comments or reasons for declining a request from the other approver(s), including the date and time when the other approver(s) responded.

And that's it! Now your employees' leave requests will be reviewed by more than one superior.
