The approval flow enables you to setup a list of people who will need to approve a payroll before it can be submitted for final payment. If a user is added to the list, their approval is mandatory to confirm the payroll.
Please note – Only users previously setup with admin access to Pento can be added to the approver list. If you need to add an additional user, you will need to contact our support team.
To enable the approval flow, please follow the steps below:
- Select Payrolls from the left sidebar
- Select Approval flow
- Toggle on Approval flow
- Add approver from the dropdown box
You can add as many approvers as you require.
All Approvers will need to approve the payroll before you are able to Confirm it. If any approvers are on leave, or unable to approve for any reason, you can remove them from the list, and re-add them once the payroll has been submitted.
When you are ready to submit the payroll for approval, you will need to follow the steps below:
- Select Payrolls
- Select relevant month
- On the right of the employee list, select Review
- Select Submit for approval
You will be able to see how many approvers are still outstanding
Tip - If you hover over Approvals: 0/1 you will be able to see which approvals are pending
Please note – You will not be able to Confirm the payroll for payment until all approvers on the list have submitted their approval.
