Administrators and collaborators with time-off access can set up and assign time-off policies for their employees so that they can use it when needed.


Here’s how time off works:

  • Set up Time-Off Policy - Administrators can set up time-off policies for employees to request time off. There is no limit to the number of policies that can be created under Paid Time Off and Sick categories. However, only one policy can be created under Unpaid Time Off


  • Assign Employees - Administrators can assign time-off policies to employees either during employee onboarding or when the policy is created. Once employees are assigned to a time-off policy, they will start accruing time-off hours based on the accrual method set. 



  • Receive Notification - Administrators and reporting managers will be notified of employees’ time-off requests by email. They can also view the requests as a notification on the PayWow dashboard. Similarly, employees will be notified of their approval status through email and push notifications. 


  • Approve Requests - Administrators can review and approve/decline employees’ time-off requests. A reporting manager if assigned for employees can also review and approve time-off requests for their reportees, as well as add time off on their behalf.


  • Initiate Payroll - Administrators must approve or decline all employee time-off requests before initiating payroll. Time-off hours approved by the employer until the payroll run date will only be integrated into payroll.
