Multiple Supervisors with only 1 Approval for Time Off

  • Not Planned

We really need the ability when someone requests time off that mulitple people are notified, and any one of those people that are notified can approve the time off request.  We've tried this both with Substitue users (basically Sudo - not a great solution), and with the approval path -

Unfortunately the approval path even though you can enter more than one person in each step that means it's an AND function.  It's definitely redundant with having multiple steps as it's the same thing.  There should either be an option for OR if multiple users are defined in an approval step, or just change it to OR in general.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks so much

Hi Dan,

Welcome to Replicon community!

I have marked this as an idea and forwarded the same to the product management for review.

Hi Dan,

This seems like a valid feature to support. We don't have plans to work on this right now, but will re-consider as we plan for next year. Would like to see if others on the community have encountered this scenario before.

Thanks, Karen

This is 2 years old... how long does it take to get multiple supervisors???  I also want to be able to have one of several different people be able to approve timesheets, without making them all required.

P.S. I would have logged in to post this, but your customer center login button doesn't work for me.  It just goes back to the regular timesheet login, and when I navigate back to customer center, it shows me logged out again.

P.P.S I figured out a roundabout way to login, but it should just work.

I really hope this can be addressed - it's a really simple change in logic and very frustrating for our partners that they cannot have just one of them approve requests.

Is this going to be addressed at all?
