Step 2: Check Nomination Status

Step 3: Take Action on a Nomination

2. Nomination submission shows the details of the Award or Core Value demonstrated and the reason provided by the nominator. This allows managers or admins to either approve or decline the nomination.

3. The manager or admin must mention the reason for their approval or rejection. Once approved, the request goes for a second round of approval, which follows a similar flow.

The final approver then selects the budget from where the reward points are given.

Step 6: Edit Citation

The nominator can edit the citation in an approval-based award only if the first level of approver has not yet approved it.

Step 7: Raise a request to Revoke Award.

Nominators or approvers can request awards for revoking. If there are multiple approvers, the final approver can ask the previous approver to complete the approval process.

The Super Admin from the Revoke award & Gifts option can control the revoking process.

Once the award is approved, the system notifies the nominator and nominee and adds reward points to the nominee's account.
