Approve a timesheet in My Payroll (employee)

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

These instructions are for authorised employees. Go to approve or reject timesheets if you’re a Payroll Admin.

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.

  4. Click on the request to open it.
  5. Review the request and edit some details if needed.
  6. Click Approve or Reject.
