The time off request panel within Workforce facilitates a seamless notification, approval, and compensation process between the employee and the manager. Any bank that an employee can charge a work day to will be in the time off request panel, even if it’s not accrued. For example, the 18 PD Hours bank is a time off request type, even if it’s not time off.
There are different types of time off requests for every employee group, and it is automatically generated by the system. Follow the steps below to use any of the time off types in your timesheet.

It will make it editable.
- Click Submit once you are done. Once the request is approved by the supervisor, the pay codes and hours are defaulted into the timesheet for the selected day(s).
Note: There is no way for an employee to report sick time directly on the timesheet. It must go through the time off request process.
