Assign Approval Permissions

On the Approval Permissions page, System Admins and Security Admins can assign specific permissions for employee groups.

First, set up the permission in the header of the page, and then add it to the grid. Permissions apply to expenses, performance reviews, timecards, time off, training, and emergency contacts. See Approval Permissions Fields for additional details about this page.
