Report Any Issues with OneUSG Connect by Submitting a MyTechHelp Ticket

Wednesday OneUSG Tip

Today’s OneUSG Connect tip is about submitting a time off request.  This process is the same for all employees, exempt or non-exempt. If you rarely ask for time off, or you are a monthly employee who only once a month logs into OneUSG Connect, sometimes you forget what is the procedure, so we thought it was time for a review.  Most importantly, there has to be a request, you don’t place it on your time card as we did in ADP. So don’t try to go into your timesheet and just add it in. Instead, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into OneUSG Connect.
  2. From Employee Self Service, click the Time and Absence tile.
  3. On the Time page, click the Request Absence link.
  4. On the Request Absence page, click the Absence Name field and select absence reason.
  5. Enter or select the Start Date of the absence.
  6. Enter or select the End Date of the absence, if more than one day is being requested.
  7. Validate/enter the number of hours for the absence in the Duration field.
  8. Add Comments to detail the absence request. These comments are routed to your manager or designated time approver.
  9. To save the request without submitting it, click the Save for Later button.
  10. When finished entering all information for the absence, click the Submit button.
  11. The system displays an informational message, asking you to confirm the submittal request.  Click the Yes button.
  12. After completing the submittal process, the leave request is redisplayed in read-only mode.  The Request Status is set to Submitted.

To note: If you’ve made a mistake, you need to “edit” your time instead of canceling it or pushing it back .  If you go through all these steps and request time off but made a mistake, you or your manager need to ‘edit’ the request. For example, if you requested 8 hours but realized you only needed 4 hours, ‘edit’ the request.  If you cancel and think you can start over, the system won’t allow it.  It will tell you that there is already a request for that day. You will then need to contact payroll for them to delete the cancellation so you can start over.
