Classroom Training for Approvers

The Human Resource Services learning center offers instructor-led classes for Approvers. Topics covered include:

  • An introduction to the system
  • How employees clock their time
  • Viewing and approving time
  • Scheduling absences
  • Viewing reports

Two classes are available: "UChicago Time for Approvers" and "UChicago Time for Approvers of Students and Temporary Employees Only." Anyone who approves biweekly, benefits-eligible staff should attend the "UChicago Time for Approvers" class. If you only approve students and temporary employees, attend the other class. If you only approve monthly staff, you do not need to attend a class; instead, view the Monthly Absence Reports practice activity.

Classes are scheduled regularly. To register, go to the Training Registration site.

All classes are held at the HRS Training Center at 6054 S. Drexel Ave, room 146. Seating is limited to 15 persons per class.
