The general process for approval /decline is as follows:

  • The employees apply for requests like leave, expense, shift, and comp off.

  • A notification is sent to the Reporting Manager via email that the reportees have applied for the specific request. Simultaneously, the employee also receives the email on the request raised.

  • The Reporting Manager will approve /decline the request either directly through the email notification or log into ESS and accordingly approve/decline the request.

  • An email notification will be sent to your reportees that you have approved/declined the claim and the request will be processed accordingly. 

  • All notifications received and approved/declined can be viewed on the right-hand side of the home page in ESS under “Notifications”.
