In this article, you will learn how the reimbursement workflow can continue, even if the assigned individual is unavailable for an extended period of time. Typically, there is a streamlined workflow for approvals that runs through a particular person. In the past, when that person has been unavailable, approvals have been held up. In PeopleSoft, there are mechanisms in place to alleviate issues such as this.

  1. As a failsafe mechanism, if an approver does not review a request within 3 days, the request will automatically be forwarded to their supervisor.
  2. Employees can view a variety of notifications (Approved or overdue for approval), including reimbursement requests through their dashboard.
