Third Party Approvals are a way for a third party to sign off on employee time and physical presence for employee hours worked. Approvals may be sent out daily, for each pay period, or for a custom time period.
**This option must be enabled for third party's to sign on an employee device. Contact your administrator to have this enabled.**

View Employee Timesheet Before Signing
To view active approval requests from the employee device, have the employee either click on the Signature Requests tab in their VeriClock app menu, or click on the Third Party Approval tab when logged into their account from a desktop computer.
Before signing off on an employee timesheet, click on the active request for a breakdown of employee hours worked during this approval request period. If there are any discrepancies between the hours listed and the hours actually worked, contact the employer. A new Approval request can be sent out after discrepancies have been resolved.
If the approver needs to send a message attached to the approval request, the message can be written in the message box and sent.
When ready to approve the employee time, the approver can click on The blue Action button and click again on Third Party Sign.
A timesheet can be approved by clicking and dragging the mouse over the signature box. To erase a signature and re-sign, click the red Reset button. Type your name, noting the name of the approver. To finish approving the timesheet, click the blue I Approve button.
Once signed, the approved timesheet will show as completed.
Approve Time From The Employee's App
Approvers can approve time directly in the employee's app, from the tab Third Party Signoff in the app menu.
- After reviewing the timesheet, they would tap the blue arrow box to sign > tap Third Party Sign > User a finger to sign + key in the name of the person signing > tap the blue I Approve button.
