Yes, there is a “View Balance” button that allows you to see available time off balances before you approve the time off request. It’s available in the absence request work item so you do not have to leave the task to review time available.
Once a supervisor has approved the absence request, you will see the deduction off your balance following the actual time off. For example, if you requested the 28th off on the 25th, the time would not be deducted from your balance until the 29th. You can use the “view my balance” task in Workday to see how many hours you’ve accrued and taken on a specific date and it will include approved future time off.
Any HR, time or absence requests will go to your primary manager in Workday. Your primary manager can add another approver (such as another manager you report to). Your primary manager’s approval is all that’s required. Your absence request will appear on the time off and leave calendar for all your managers in Workday.
