Select the Approval Category that is appropriate for the transaction you are initiating.  Select the job that needs to have a Labor Distribution Change. Only jobs that are active can have a labor distribution change. Click “Go”.

Routing Queue

The EPAFs have pre-defined routing levels. You have to designate someone to approve this transaction for each level. You can also add Approvals on the fly for additional approvals or FYIs.  Additionally you can also Default Your Routing Queue if you know a particular Personnel Action will always go through the same levels.
