How to Request and Approve Overtime in Timetec HR App

Some companies do not provide Overtime for all staff. Staff entitled to overtime need to request overtime approval from their approver before they can proceed to work overtime. Using the Timetec HR app, the overtime application process will be more convenient for both regular users and approvers. Here we will be discussing how to request and approve overtime via the Timetec HR app.

A. Request Overtime

1. Login to the Timetec HR app > Click on the Options button.

2. Click on the My Request icon.

3. On the new pop-up notification, select Overtime.

4. Click on the + symbol to add a new overtime request.

5. Fill up all the required information in the request module and click the Submit button once the data is filled in.
Remark: Any user who is set as an Admin in the system’s role, can apply Overtime for themselves and also on behalf of other users.

6. Once the request is successfully submitted, a new pending request will appear under the Overtime request.

B. Approve Overtime

1. Users who are set as Overtime approvers will receive a notification on their mobile for each request submitted by their staff. 

2. The approver can also check any request done by their staff under the notifications tab.

3. The approver may click the Approval tab to view all staff requests and the status of each request done by the staff. Click on the pending request (blue tab) which needs an approver response.

4. The approver can fill in the comment section and respond to the request (Approve or Reject).

5. Once the Approve button is clicked, the request tab will change to green.

If an employee is required to work on their OFFDAYRESTDAY, or PUBLIC HOLIDAY during their normal work hours, it is NOT considered overtime, and they DO NOT NEED TO APPLY FOR APPROVED OVERTIME. However, if they work beyond their normal work hours, they need to apply for approved overtime.

For example, if the normal work hours are from 8am to 5pm and an employee is required to work on their off day from 8am to 5pm, it is not considered as overtime, and they do not need to apply for approved overtime. 
However, if they work from 8am to 8pm, they would need to apply for approved overtime for the additional hours worked beyond their regular work hours of 8am to 5pm. 
In this case, they would only need to apply for approval for the overtime worked between 5pm and 8pm.
