Permission Profile > System > Administration > Historical Timesheets
Which provides the flexibility to restrict the TimeSheet visibility of the user from Historical Timesheets to either,
For All users: Where the user would be able to view Timesheets of all the users in Web Timesheet.
For Supervise's: Users for whom the original user has been assigned as the supervisor.
