Processing Approvals for Pending Recognitions Follow
Responding to recognitions in pending approval queues is arguably one of the most important things a manager can do in a recognition program. The timely celebration of an achievement is a critical element to successful recognition. By quickly approving or declining pending recognitions, managers protect the recognition from the deflating bottleneck the approval queue can become. Respond quickly to approval requests and keep the recognition closely tied to the action being celebrated.

Step by Step Instructions
To begin, log in to your account and click the bell icon to the left of your name in the top right corner of the screen. You will be brought to your pending approvals page and will be presented with a list of recognitions pending your approval.
Once on the pending approvals page, expand the recognitions by clicking the arrow on the left of the recognition or by clicking the icons to the right of the "Program" column header. Once the recognition is expanded, you will be able to view the sender, the recipient, the reason for recognition, the recognition amount, the program the recognition is in, any tags attached to the recognition, and if the recognition carries a monetary value, budget information as well. Use the search bar at the top to search for recognitions to approve by date, program, nominator, recipient, budget, and approvers.
In this view, you will be able to adjust the value of the award if the recognition is part of a program that allows monetary recognitions. You may also add a comment to the Events Log for any other approvers to reference. Once you are satisfied with the recognition details, you may approve the award. Depending on your platform settings, the recognition will either be sent to the recipient or will continue up the approvals ladder. If you would like to decline the recognition, click decline and enter your reason for declining the recognition. Depending on your platform settings, your response entered here may be sent back to the sender.
Repeat this process with all remaining pending approvals.
Any user of the platform classified as an admin will have visibility of all approvals in pending status organization wide. They are able to take action to approve or decline.
