ADDITIONAL ACTIONS

By clicking on the icon of the three stacked bars in the upper right, you will be able to take additional actions from the pending approvals screen.

Approvals - Additional Actions

Pending Approvals

This is the page that you are brought to by default.  If you have selected another of the options available or completed an en masse approval, you may need to select this option to return to your pending approvals.

Review Approvals

This action would be useful to review transactions for which you are listed as a reviewer and not an approver.  The two transactions that are configured for this page do not have reviewers built into their workflow so you will likely not need to select this option.

Approvals History

You will be able to see a 30 day history of the transactions that you approved here.  

Approvals - Approval History


There are other pages that will show greater than 30 days of history (Workflow Addl Pay Create for Addl Pay and Manager Self Service > View Time > Absence Request History for Absences)
