Time Approvers

Online Timesheets Approvers (Only):

  • Time Approvers of online timesheets do not need to re-validate the balances when you approve the timesheet. They are reduced upon employee time submission. Leave time balances reflect the actual time an employee has available and is eligible to use. The SSTA application validates that the employee has enough leave time when the employee submits the timesheet. If the employee does not have enough time in their balance, they will receive an error and will need to change their time.  Approvers of TCD timesheets should continue to click “Submit” before approving the timesheet.

SSTA - Use of Zeros on Timesheet
