The HR module is a PRO only feature that adds support to link resources to a manager. A manager is by default given the approver role for the resource they are manager for. This includes time records, expense claims and absences. But, each of these can be defined separately.
HR is added a a separate tab on the resource. Access to this tab is controlled using permissions that is defined on the access roles.
A manager is the resource that is directly above the employee in the hierarchy. All active internal resources are available to be selected as manager.
When selecting a resource as the manager for your employee, the manager will also be set as the time registration approver for the employee. This can be changed, the list will contain resources that are above the employee in the hierarchy, but also resources that have a role where the "Available for HR tasks" permission has been given.
When selecting a resource as the manager for your employee, the manager will also be set as the travel and expense approver for the employee.
When selecting a resource as the manager for your employee, the manager will also be set as the absence approver for the employee.
To approve absence use the absence report. Company/Absence/Absence report. As an absence approver, these will be coming as notifications and clicking on the notification will load the report filtered with the resources one has to approve.
To approve time registrations, use the hours report. Company/Hours report.
As a time registration approve, these will also be coming as notifications and clicking on the notification will load the report filtered with the resources you are to approve.
The "My overview" page will contain information about who is the resource's manager and who is the approver if different than the manager. Shown under a section named HR.
In addition, for those resources that has been set as manager or an approver, they will also get an overview of those resources that they have this responsibility over. One will also here see the number of items to be approved for each resource.
