3. To complete the change, click the checkbox under the Select column and define the Submission Options to determine how the system will process the leave requests.

a. Override Forecast Eligibility – During forecasting the system will determine if the employee has enough sick or vacation balance to cover their request.  This is based on existing leave requests the employee has and their entitlements.  If the employee does not have sufficient sick or vacation balance, their request will need to be adjusted or the employee risks incurring LWOP.  Clicking this checkbox will skip the forecasting process.  NOTE: It is not recommended to check this box. 

b. Submit Option – Route the leave request to the employee’s supervisor for approval or select approve automatically.
