SF-182 Request Management

The SF-182 Request Management page allows administrators and managers to manage SF-182 requests. On this page, you can perform the following actions:

  • Create an SF-182 request for a user.
  • Edit an SF-182 request submitted by a user.
  • Copy an SF-182 request submitted by a user.
  • View a printable version of an SF-182 request.

The SF-182 Requests table is sorted by newest to oldest date submitted. All columns are sortable except the Options column.

To access the SF-182 Request Management page, go to the Your Inbox widget on the Welcome page and select the Approve SF-182 Requests link. You can also access the page through the SF-182 Form Management navigation tab.

Create New Request

Click the Create New Request link to create a new SF-182 request for one or more users. In order to successfully submit an SF-182 request, your administrator must configure approval steps on the SF-182 Preferences page. See Set SF-182 Preferences - Set Approvals.


Enter search filter options, and click Search.

For the Select OU Criteria filter, the following considerations apply:

  • Organizational Unit (OU) filter combinations are not currently supported. For example, if a division is selected as filter criteria, it is not possible to also use a location or user filter.
  • Locations, division, and user filters do not currently have the option to choose a parent and include all child location, division, or users. For example, to select a parent Location and all the child Locations for that parent please select the parent and the individual child locations.
