Pending Approvals in Approval WorkCenter

Check out the recorded Approval WorkCenter Webinar from Thursday, August 6, 2020 for an overview of the WorkCenter.

Details on processing the individual approvals are available in the Approval WorkCenter Guide v1.0.

New features include:
  • Seeing HCM and Finance approval items on the same screen
  • Filtering by Approval Type
  • Doing Mass Approvals
  • Using mobile devices (requires Secure Auth access)
We currently have a few items that we want to make you aware of:
  • Worklists for HCM and Finance will be available until approximately August 24th.
  • We have done some clean up to remove the “Marked Worked” items from your Work List so they do not show on the new WorkCenter.
  • Requester names are not in alphabetical order. This is delivered functionality.
  • The Approve, Deny, Hold and More buttons’ orientation changes after viewing Approval Chain.
  • If you add an ad hoc approver, the date defaults to 12/31/23 12:00 am. This is a bug that Oracle is aware of but it will not affect the approval or posting process.
  • Mass approval for Vouchers is not available at this time. This is a bug that we are working on. Users can still go through the Approval Work Center and approve individual vouchers by clicking into the voucher and approving it there.
  • Mass approval for PAF is not available. This is due to the custom set up of this module. Users can see and approve individual PAF by clicking through to the PAF action page.
If you have any questions or problems, please contact PeopleSoft Support by submitting a Service Portal Ticket. Include “Approval WorkCenter” in the short description of your service ticket.
