Use the secondary notification field to select employees to be alerted when actions for the above role are created. For example, when an absence request is added, the role members the employee reports to will be notified. If there are secondary employees selected, they too will be notified.
This is managed under the ROLES. Go to Manage My Business » Business Settings » Manage Roles and select a role to edit.
You will see a drop list ‘Secondary Notification’, in there you can pick your role.
Once saved, any notifications sent to the role you just edited will also be sent to you.
