If I am on leave, can leave approvals only be delegated to a direct report without doing anything else (such as acting arrangement)?
Yes. A supervisor can delegate some or all their approval actions for a specified time in Workday. For example, a supervisor could delegate all actions to a colleague while on leave or choose to only delegate leave request approvals while on leave.
A supervisor can delegate approvals to a direct report, a colleague at the same level, or to their supervisor.
Supervisors are responsible for ensuring delegations are set in Workday during any period of leave, to ensure transactions are not missed or left unchecked or unapproved.
Guidance for how to set up delegation can be found in the delegation user guide.
