Submit a New Position for Approval

If your organization requires approval for posting new positions, you will be prompted to submit new positions for approval as the final step in creating a position.

Organizations can also set up position approval workflows to accomodate requirements for more than one step in the position approval process.

The administrator(s) who are designated to approve new positions will be notified that you have submitted a position for approval, and can either approve the position and send it forward to the next step in the approval process, or send it back for changes.  

If changes are required, you will be notified of the necessary changes and can resubmit the position once the required changes have been made. This article explains more about the process of approving positions.
