Disabling approval for "Work from Home"

We have an employee who uses a "work from home" time off option two or three days per week. Her supervisor does not want to have to approve each and every one of these requests - she just wants it to show up on the calendar as it is a weekly recurrence, and as already been "approved" as such. Is there any way to set it so that when this employee books the work from home time off, it does NOT need to be approved by her supervisor? Thanks!

Hi Lia,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community.

Yes you can setup time off type specific approval paths. In order to do so, go to Administration - Time off Approval Paths and open the approval path assigned to the user.

Now click on "+Add time off type specific path" button and choose work from home. Leave the approver section blank ensuring that no approval is needed. This will have all the time off types go through default approval path and the work from home get auto approved.

Thank you for the response! I'm not sure I'm seeing what you're describing, though. When I go to the user, I don't see an option for "Add time off type specific path". I've attached a screenshot of what I see. Am I missing it?

Hi Lia,

Apologies for causing a confusion here.

The option that we have mentioned above is used for the latest version of Replicon. As for the current version that you are on, unfortunately there is no way to setup a time off type specific paths.
