Changing Supervisor Notification

UNDERSTAND

An Online Work/Leave System (OWLS) timekeeper can add, delete, or change the name of the supervisor in an employee’s OWLS record.

The individual designated as the supervisor in an employee’s OWLS record is responsible for reviewing the record and ensuring its accuracy. More than one supervisor can be designated in an employee’s record, and supervisors can choose to either receive or not receive the Post Entry Review Message (PERM), but at least one supervisor must receive the PERM.

3. Enter the new supervisor’s UW NetID. 4. If the supervisor is to receive the monthly PERM  notification, make sure the 'Received PERM' button is marked. 5. Click on 'Save.'
