When an employee submits an absence request that needs some modifications, such as, changing the take type, length of absence etc., the Manager may want to choose the option of "Push Back". If this is the case, the absence request will be sent back to the employee to review and modify as the Manager suggests.
Note: If an employee mistakenly submits an absence request to their supervisor, there is no way for the employee to recall the submitted request unless the employee contacts the supervisor to have them "push back" the request. From there the employee can modify and resubmit the request.
To perform this procedure, please follow these steps:
Log in to the My UW System portal at https://my.wisconsin.edu/. (Note: UW-Madison employees log in to the My UW-Madison portal). For more information on logging into the My UW System portal, please see UWSC Support - Logging into the My.Wisconsin.edu / My.Wisc.edu System Portal .
*Note: you can view any requests you have approved or denied by changing the Show Requests By Status field to what you want to view ("Approved" or "Denied") and then click the Refresh button.
*Note: The Current Balance on the page reflects whatever the employee's leave balance was when they submitted the request and will not reflect any other absence requests that were pending at the time. You should always verify that your employees have available hours in their balance before approving any absence requests.
