Absence Cancellation and Improved Efficiency Now Available in Self Service
On November 6, improved service and efficiencies were implemented in Self Service.
The most noteable improvement is the ability for you to cancel or edit an absence request, even after your supervisor has already approved it.
Have you ever had to cancel time off at the last second? Well now you can go into Self Service and edit or cancel a request on your own, as long as you haven’t already been paid for the leave time on your pay check. You can cancel the absence request entirely, or you can switch the type of leave you are using, the day and the number of hours of leave.
As with anything related to your employment, check with your supervisor before using this new feature. They may have specific requirements for how they want you to change your absence requests.
Since November 6, you may have noticed that a few of the Self Service features you access through the MyUW portal look a bit different. Specifically, if you have viewed your personal information or benefits enrollments, you likely noticed the new ‘look and feel’ intended to be simpler, less cluttered, and to play nicer with your smart phone or other mobile device.
If you haven’t visited the pages, you are encouraged to do so. The pages still work the same. You can still update your Home Address, Emergency Contacts and Marital Status and view your benefit enrollment information. But with the new page design, it should be a little easier to do when you’re on the go.
