How do I turn off email notifications for Leave requests and approvals?

Hi sonja5, 

 

With payroll email notifications the settings in the steps below will only allow you to change the types of notifications you get under the email you signed in with. To turn off the email notifications for leave requests and approvals please see the steps below:

 

  1. When signed into the file, select the Employees tab on the left
  2. On the screen that includes your list of employees, to the right hand side you will see an option Manage Employees, select the drop down and then select Notifications. 
  3. It will bring up a new window with a list of emails notifications you can personalise to your login email. If you wish to turn them all off please make sure you leave them all unticked, then hit Save

 

Moving forward you will not be notified of any new requests or approvals for the employee's from the payroll system.

 

Thanks,

 

-Steven

How do I turn off email notifications for Leave requests and approvals?

Thank you Steven!

 

Sorry I should have specified that the email notifications are sent to the employee.

 

We have a manual approval system, so creating and approving leave requests is purely for processing, however at the moment when the requests are created, the employee receives an email, causing confusion.

 

Is there a default setting that notifications will NOT be sent to employees or their managers?

Yes there is an option for that within the Employee Details to make sure their rostering notifications e.g. approvals and requests are not sent to them. It will need to be ticked for all employees separately under their own details. To do this please see the steps below: 

  1. Select on of your employee's then on the left-hand side select Pay Run Defaults. 
  2. On this screen, scroll down in the field Rostering Notifications untick email as an option, and SMS if necessary. 
  3. Then scroll down and select Save.

In regards to the managers, are they currently users on the file like yourself? Meaning they sign in to check or do work within the Payroll System? If they wish to turn of their notifications, they will need to follow the steps in my first response please. 

 

Hope this helps,

 

-Steven

Hi Steven - I have followed your instructions above and have had no luck.  All staff are receiving an email notification of each others leave application which also includes how much their leave accrual is.  This has caused grief in our team.  Is there something I am missing in the settings to turn off email notifications to all staff for leave applications?  I have followed your instructions and there is no 'tick' in the field - Pay Run Defaults/Rostering Notifications/ Email or SMS.

Hi Graeme HRE, 

 

The settings enabled on your notification settings will be applied to one login only. You can have your staff disable this option once they login by following these steps. 

 

  1. Go to Employees tab.
  2. On Manage Employees, select the drop-down menu and then select Notifications
  3. Untick Email me when an employee that I supervise requests leave.
  4. Select Save.

 

Please note that each staff needs to untick this option once they logged into their account. For more information, you can check on this article: Manager/Administrator Email Notification Configuration.

 

Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any other questions.
