Acuity One45 - Managing Absence Requests

This document describes how to manage absence requests within the Acuity One45 system.

Acuity ONE45 Logo

The MEO service account will receive and email notification that there is a task to complete in Acuity. This means that a student has initiated an absence proposal. You can also view all outstanding absence requests by logging into the Absence Approver. 

Approve/Acknowledge/Deny Requests

To respond to a student's absence request: 

  1. Log into Acuity One45 as the Absence Approver (MEO service account) or log into your account and navigate to "Approver" using the search function in the upper right hand side of the screen.

  2. You will see all the outstanding requests on the ToDo page and be able to view if it is for Phase 1 (Undergrad) or Phase 2. 
  3. In the contributor column, a checked box indicates that the student has completed the proposal. If the box is unchecked, then the student has initiated the proposal, but has not completed it. 
  4. Click on the student's name to launch the approval form.

  5. When you launch the form, you will first see the student's completed form. You can scroll through to review the information, then the form you fill out will be on the same page just below the student's form.
