Click on "Approve Time" located in the upper right corner of the screen. Select the “Alternate Approver Setup” link. Click on the alternate approver's name to view/edit their setup. Choose their level of access by selecting either “All Job Orders” (current and future) or “Select Job Orders”. If you choose “Select Job Orders”, you may click on the magnifying glass to access the list of current job orders. Then check the box/boxes of the corresponding job orders that require access for this alternate approver. Or you may grant access for all job orders within a Robert Half division. Enter the dates that the alternate approver's access should begin and end. Check the “Allow Alternate Access to History” box if you would like your alternate approver to have access to the timesheet history. Click “Save Setup”. Please allow for a 1- or 2-hour system interface to occur before your alternate approver's access takes effect. If the alternate approver does not already have a login ID and password for the Online Time Reporting System, they will receive an email with this information after this system interface.
