If you edit an approved or rejected timesheet, its status will be rolled back to “Not Ready”.

Edit Assigned Users’ Timesheets

After you select a user, you’ll see their timesheet and will be able to edit it as your own. Its color will turn to a darker blue so that you don’t mistake it for your own timesheet.

Note that managers can edit time entries only for tasks that belong to their management scope.

To go back to your timesheet, click “Back to me” right next to the user selector.

  • From Enter Time-Track > Approve Time-Track interface. For more convenience, you can filter timesheets by statuses or search users by their names. Select one or several timesheets and click “Approve” or “Reject”.

To review user’s entries before approval, click on their name, and you’ll be forwarded to their weekly “Enter Time-Track” interface.

Managers can view automatically approved timesheets of their team at any time. If you need a manager to edit automatically approved timesheets, go to Settings > General Settings > Data Access Restrictions and enable the option “Allow managers to modify time-track of users configured for automatic approval”.

Grant Approving Permission

Managers can assign approvers by granting users the right to “Modify & Approve Users Time-Track” and assigning subordinating users to them.

Any user can be assigned multiple approvers. However, they only need to get one approval from any of them. For more data security, you may want to grant the permission to “Lock Time-Track”.

To see who can approve a user's timesheet, go to Users > Accounts & Permissions. Select the necessary user from the list, scroll down to the “Time-Track Approval” section and click on the number of managers if there are any.
