Approving Assignment Actions

HR Liaisons

When an action is submitted to hire an employee or change assignment details, the action appears in CSU Approvals until all required levels have approved the action. Only the person who sumbitted the action is able to view the informational notifications that are created as approvals are granted at each level.

Actions should be approved only by individuals authorized by the department head or chair. If an action is approved by an unauthorized individual, it will be rejected.

  1. From the Navigator window, open CSU Approvals.

  2. Locate the name of the appropriate employee by scanning the names in the Subject column (or use Simple Search).

    A notification that requires approval says “Approval Required” in the Subject. To open it, click on the subject.

  3. Click on the Subject of the notification to open it.

    Changes to an assignment are indicated by asterisks.

  4. After reviewing the notification, click Approve or Reject.

    While an authorized signer is the only person who should approve an action, any user can reject an action in order to correct an error.
