As a supervisor, when you log into PTAWeb you will be taken to your approval screen first. The current period will always be displayed. If you are approving time for other than the current period, you will need to select the correct period from the drop down menu labeled “Pay Period From:” or by clicking on “Prev”. To approve employee time click in the box next to each employee’s name in the “Approved” column and click on the ‘Save Changes’ button. You may elect to approve all employees time at once by clicking on ‘Check All’ and the on ‘Save Changes’. To remove an approval, click on the ‘Approved’ box next to the employee’s name and click on ‘Save Changes’. To remove all approvals click on ‘Uncheck All’ and ‘Save Changes’. Once you have approved time for an employee, they can no longer make any changes. To view detail for a specific employee click on the hyperlink for their name.
To assign another supervisor to perform approvals for your employees’ in your absence, select the ‘Edit Backup’ option from the ‘Supervisor Menu’. A drop down menu will display with a list of all the supervisors in your department. Select the name of the supervisor who is to be your backup and click on the ‘Save Backup’ button. This person will have the same rights to information for your employees as you have. You may remove or select a different backup at anytime.
To complete approvals for a supervisor who has assigned you as their backup, select their name from the drop down menu next to the label “Supervisor”. This will display all of that supervisor’s employees. The same rules apply to approval as for your own employees. Make sure you are on the correct period and then perform the approvals by either clicking individually or ‘Check All’ and clicking on ‘Save Changes’.
To add/change work or leave time for an employee you must first access the employee’s record. You may do this by either clicking on the hyperlink on your approval grid or by selecting their name from the drop down menu under the ‘Select Employee’ label on the Supervisor’s Menu. When you select the employee you will be moved to their record. Their name will appear at the top of the menu window and any actions you take will be on that employee’s record.
You may now perform any function on the employee menu for this employee except editing their default schedule. If you make a change to work or leave time for an employee, they will not be able to change anything further on that day. They will see a message indicating an administrative change has been made. This also will appear if someone in payroll makes a change on behalf of the employee. To return to your own record, from the ‘Supervisor Menu’ select the option ‘Select Own Data’.
Supervisors who have an employee on FMLA can designate the leave hours to be applied to the Family/Medical leave in two places in PTAWeb. If the hours have already been entered, you may select the employee, select ‘Leave History’ from the ‘Employee Menu’ and click in each box next to the leave entry and then click on ‘Save Changes’.
