FAQs: Genesys Tempo™ for iOS
Genesys Tempo is a workforce management application that enables agents to perform the scheduling tasks.
How do I create a time-off request?
At the bottom of the screen, tap Time Off. Then, to schedule a time-off request, to the upper right, tap Add .
How do I view my time off with Genesys Tempo for iOS?
Tap Time Off. The Summary tab appears. This tab displays your pending requests, any approved requests for this week, and your upcoming approved requests.
To see all of your requests, tap All Requests.
What are the possible statuses of my time-off requests?
The following statuses are possible:
|Pending||Request is awaiting manual intervention from an administrator.|
|Approved||Either an administrator or the system approved the request. When an administrator approves, the update is done manually and when system approves, the update is done automatically based on auto-approval rules.|
|Request is canceled.|
|Denied||Administrator denied the request manually.|
|Waitlisted||System could not approve the request automatically because it is waiting on limit availability. If availability appears before the waitlist window closes, the system auto-approves the request.|
Advance Time Elapsed
|The request was not auto approved because configured advance time for waitlist has elapsed.|
Invalid Daily Duration
System could not approve the request automatically because the daily duration that the agent requested does not comply with the agent’s scheduled hours. If the agent is not scheduled currently, the system checks the duration against the work plan to which the agent is associated. For work plan rotation, the system also chooses the correct work plan according to time-off request dates and assigned rotation.
Note: If an agent is not currently scheduled to work, and is not associated with a work plan, then the time-off request is not automatically approved. The request remains in Pending status and requires an administrator’s manual intervention.
|Outside Shift||System could not approve the request automatically because it is not compatible with any work plan shift.|
Removed from Waitlist
|Request is no longer associated to a waitlist. For example, when an agent moves to another management unit and there is no matching time-off plan set up for auto-approval in another management unit.|
|Auto Approved||Request is auto approved by the system.|
|Insufficient Balance||Request is not auto-approved due to insufficient balance in the selected time-off type.|
How do I use Genesys Tempo for iOS to create a time-off request with non-sequential dates?

You can use Genesys Tempo to view time-off requests with non-sequential dates.
For time-off requests, what are the possible indicators I can see?
When you log on to Tempo, the following indicators are possible:
- No border around the date indicates that the date is available to request time off.
- Fire on the date indicates that the date is filling fast; the hours available are less than three times the requested amount. For example, if I request eight hours and the hours under the limit are less than 24, fire appears on the date.
- A red border around the date indicates that there is a short waitlist; five or fewer people requested time off on that day.
- A red filled box on the date indicates that there is a long waitlist; more than five people are on waitlist after requesting time off on that day.
- An exclamation mark (!) on the date indicates that a time-off request is pending, but it violates one or more auto-approval rules in a time-off plan.
- A question mark (?) on the date indicates that a time-off plan doesn’t exist or is set to always require Admin approval.
- The bar at the bottom indicates the requested time-off hours in yellow and the available balance in green.
What do the different pending messages mean for time-off requests?
|Your request is waitlisted. You are third in line on the waitlist.||Request duration and all other checks have passed. Currently, limits are not available on the dates selected. The system approves the request automatically when limits become available.|
|Your request was not auto-approved because the configured advance time for waitlist has elapsed.||Request is expired and the system cannot approve it automatically.|
|Your request was not auto-approved because the daily duration specified is not compatible with the scheduled or planned shift duration.||Requested duration did not pass the check against a published schedule or, if none exists, the work plan to which the agent is associated. The request requires manual intervention from an Admin for approval or denial.|
|Your request was not auto-approved because the partial day paid request is not compatible with any planned shift.||Requested partial day did not pass the check against a published schedule or, if none exists, the work plan to which the agent is associated. The request requires manual intervention from an Admin for approval or denial.|
