Q: We just got set up on your On-line Time Reporting system. Being centralized in HR, it's great because I can see instantly just how many temps we have out, and I love that you store all of that historical information for easy access.

But, since we have a couple of job sites, it's kind of a hassle to track down my managers each week to approve the time cards. Is there a way I can get them set up so that they can approve those cards?
