If you're using Time Off Approvals, you can define the person who will approve the request (or more people if needed) per each time off category.

After you've assigned a time off entitlement to a person, select the Approver icon to assign a person to approve the time off entry:

You can add more than one person as an approver:

If there are multiple approvers set up, then all of them will need to approve a request for it to appear as accepted.

Alternatively, a single person (Admin) can approve a request on behalf of other approvers. Click the approvers' portrait and the Approve request button:

Once you click on Approve request, the time off booking will immediately be visible in Scheduling. In case Productive detects conflict with other bookings you will see a pop-up screen that states this time off booking overlaps with one or more already existing bookings. You can choose to approve it anyway or View it in Scheduling.

You can also include additional people who will be notified that the time off request has been approved:

Check which people will approve the time off request, and who will be notified:

As always, when the request is approved, the time off booking will automatically appear in Scheduling.

If a time off category does not have an approver defined, all requests will be approved automatically:

The person requesting the approval will be notified that the event is approved automatically:

You can also define approvers for multiple categories at once:

Once you edit the approver(s) for one entitlement, you can choose if this will reflect to other ones as well:
