Super Approver's in Natural HR can be used to assign a second individual as an approver for requests that require approval, such as Timeoff Requests or Expense Reports. The key difference between standard Approvers and Super Approvers is that Super Approvers are exclusively used within Approval workflows built in Workflow Builder. Being designated as a Super Approver has no other meaning within the system, and provides no additional access rights, other than the ability to be selected as the recipient of an approval workflow step.
Example: Using a Super Approver in a Time Off Approval Workflow.
Firstly, you will need to give the desired employee Super Approver status. To do this, go to:
People -> Employees
Navigate to the employee you want to make a Super Approver and click on the Change icon under the Core Details heading (if you are using Card View):
If you are using Table View, you'll find the same option in the actions column, labelled "Job Change":
On this page, check the Super approver? checkbox to make the employee a Super Approver:
Next, you will need to assign this Super Approver to another employee that you would like them to approve requests for. Locate the employee under People > Employees, and on the Change screen, select them in the Super approver drop-down:
You can now use Super Approver as the recipient of a workflow step. In this example I want Time Off approval requests to go to the Employee's Manager and Super Approver, with either person having the ability to approve the request. The workflow step will be configured as follows:
The Employee's Super Approver (and Manager) will be emailed regarding this approval. They will be able to action it from the workflow link on their home screen or the link in the email they are sent.
