How To Accept An Approval Delegation

Use the HIP system to accept approval responsibilities from another supervisor through the Manager Self-Service (MSS) screen.

After a supervisor sets up their delegation, their designated proxy will need to acknowledge they have received delegation authority.

1. The proxy will receive an email notification requesting approval to be a proxy.  Clicking on the link provided in the email will take the proxy to their My Delegated Authorities screen. 

2. From the My Delegated Authorities screen, click the check box next to the transactions to accept from the specified delegator and click on the “Accept” button.  NOTE: if there are multiple transactions to accept, click on the “Select All” link in the top left-hand corner to accept all pending delegations at once.

3. After accepting an approval delegation from a supervisor, you will be able to manage their delegated employees’ time and leave in addition to your own through the Team Time tile.  NOTE: you can switch between your own employees and delegated employees by selecting one of the options in the “acting as” drop-down menu at the top of the separate Team Time screens.
