Click on any notification for more details.
Things Needing Your Action
Alerts that appear in this column require your approval such as a time off requests and swap and drop requests. Hover over a pending request to approve from here.
Things Awaiting Action From Others
Alerts that appear here require another user to take action such as waiting for someone to pick up a swap or drop from another user after it has been approved.
Alerts that populate here are things that a user just initiated such as a time off request or drop request. You’ll also get a notification when a swap or drop request is completed.
