FAQ

Where do I enter, amend, or cancel my PTO requests?

As of 2022 we are using TalentSpace to handle all user allotments, requests, cancellations, and accruals

Will my approved PTO appear on the Pulse Resource Planner or my Pulse Timesheets?

ONLY approved Requests are sent from TalentSpace to Pulse and these will appear on the user’s Timesheet and in the Resource Planner.
The TalentSpace-Pulse Sync runs three times a day ( 7 am, 11 am, and 3pm EST) so there is a delay between when the PTO is approved before it is shown in Pulse.

Why can’t I see my PTO Requests in Pulse?

Only Approved PTO will show in Pulse. Pulse no longer knows about your pending requests for PTO. To view the status of your pending or approved requests you must log into TalentSpace and click “Absence”

Why can’t I see my Approved PTO on the Resource Planner or my Pulse Timesheets?

PTO approved in TalentSpace will appear in the Resource Planner and on your Timesheets – however, this is not immediate. After the PTO is approved you will need to wait until the TalentSpace-Pulse sync has run.

Why am I able to request PTO in Pulse if my Office uses TalentSpace to manage PTO?

If your Office is using TalentSpace for PTO but you can still request PTO in Pulse your Office an Operations User needs to turn off ‘viewPTO’ in the Permission Override in the Office Settings. This will block users from accessing the Pulse PTO tool by direct URL.

Why is the day off I requested in TalentSpace only showing up as 7 hours in my Pulse Timesheet?

If your Scheduled Weekly Hours is set to less than 40 hrs TalentSpace will calculate the number of hours as less than 8hours. For example, if it is set to 35hours it will only calculate a day off as being 7hours.

I need to amend, approve or add PTO from 2021– but when I login to TalentSpace it will only let me manage requests for 2022. How can I amend 2020 requests?

Please contact Pulse Support to temporarily give you access to any outstanding Pulse PTO requests or amendments.
