There may be instances when admins need to step in to force approve change requests if an approver in the approval flow is unable to approve the request due to being on leave, vacation, or any other reason.
Admins have two options – they can either force approve "a step" in the approval flow or force approve "all remaining steps," bypassing the other approvers in the approval flow and automatically approving the request.
How to force approve or deny a profile change request
- In "People," click on the "Approvals" tab and select the "Request Log."
- Click on the employee's pending request, and Humi will direct you to the "Request Change" page.
- From this page, click the "Approve" button and select "Approve this step" or "Force Approve (all remaining steps) as needed.
- In the "Approve Request" pop-up, click the "Approve" button to confirm the approval.
Deny the request
If you need to deny the change request, click the "Deny" button, which will bring up the "Deny Request" pop-up. Next, you can enter a comment or explanation for why you denied the request in the comment field. Finally, click the "Deny" button to confirm your action when you're confident.
If you ever need to force approve or deny a change request, you'll be prepared to do so.
