Approve a timesheet using My Payroll

If you're an employee with authorisation to approve timesheets, you can review and approve them using the My Payroll employee portal.

If you're a Payroll Admin, you'll approve or reject timesheets in a different screen.

When an employee submits a timesheet and chooses you as an approver, you’ll get an email requesting approval. You can log in from this email, or from the Xero login page.

  2. Click the Team Management tab.
  3. Click the Employee Timesheet tab.
  4. Click on the request to open it.
  5. Review the request and edit some details if needed.
  6. Click Approve or Reject.
