Fingercheck makes it easy for administrators and supervisors to approve their employees' absence requests.

Notification of absence request

When an employee submits an absence request, knowing who receives a notification is important. Absence request notifications will be emailed to the employee’s supervisor and the email addresses entered during the account setup to receive notifications.

You can confirm who is receives absence request notifications by logging in to your Fingercheck account as an admin and selecting SETUP > COMPANY > Default Settings. The email addresses entered in the Notifications email field will receive an email every time an employee submits a request.

Approve an absence request on the web

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator or Supervisor.

  2. Hover over the TIME & LABOR tab and select Absence Requests to open the Time Card dashboard.

  3. The Absence Requests page appears.

  4. If you need to edit the request, click the Edit icon (pencil) for the request, make the changes, and click Save.

  5. Select the absences you want to approve, and click Approve.

    Alternatively, you can click Delete or Decline if you do not want to approve it.

    If the request is approved, edited, or declined, the employee will receive an email notification of the action. Ensure the employee has a valid email address on file.

There are two ways to access Absence Requests in Fingercheck. Another way is to go to the Dashboard and scroll down to the Time off requests section.

  • Select an employee to view their time off request.
