Managers are able to answer Employee requests via the R365 Red App. Once a request is made, the Manager will be automatically alerted by a push notification that, when tapped, will open directly to the request. Open Requests and current Announcements are easily accessible on the Dashboard, enabling Managers approving functions at their fingertips. 


This article reviews the following topics:

  • Mobile App Navigation
  • Respond to Requests
  • Filter Requests



Mobile App Navigation


The Dashboard displays the amount of each type of request and the most recent announcement. To view either, tap the entry and a listing will then be displayed. 



The Menu iconopens the Main Menu and allows the User to navigate from the Dashboard to the Request List to see recent requests made by Employees. Those listed can be viewed in detail by tapping the request.



Once the screen shifts from the Dashboard to a Request, the bottom tool bar will appear with icons that represent each type of request. Tap the corresponding icon to view its list of requests.



For Users who have both Manager and Employee Permissions, interfaces can be easily navigated by toggling to the desired role in the Main Menu.



Respond to Requests



Managers can respond to requests by simply clicking a 'Deny' or 'Approve' button underneath the description of the request. Once clicked, a pop-up window will appear that includes an optional comment field where the Manager can include a note about his/her response. This will then be sent to all Employees on the request when they are notified of their Manager's decision.



Availability Changes


A listing of all Availability Change requests will be displayed when the Availability iconin the bottom tool bar is tapped. Each request will have a preview of the request details, including the Employee name, amount of days changed, and the date the request was made.



A Manager can then select each individual request and view the Employee Name, Jobs, Changed Availability, and Current Availability. Any date where the new availability encroaches upon the original availability will appear in red while any date where the new availability exceeds the original availability will appear in green. 


Once a request has either been Approved or Denied, the current request will close out and the listing of Availability Change requests will reappear.
