When you are ready to process your payroll, bill a client, or run cost reports, you may want to confirm that all timesheets, time off, and expenses for the period are submitted and approved. If an item is stuck in the approval process, you can contact the owner's approvers. Or, you may be able to bypass regular approvals.
To check the approval status of items:
If you're a billing or cost manager, and want to approve time entries, select Time Entries from the View By field located in the top, right-hand corner of the Timesheets page.
To find a timesheet’s approvers:
The name of the next approver displays in the Waiting on Approver column.
To find a time off booking’s approvers:
The pending approvers are shown on the right side of the booking dialog.
To find an expense sheet's approvers:
If this column is not shown, click the icon to enable it.
The approvers are listed under the main expense sheet table. This includes all approvers, whether they have already approved or not.
When a timesheet is submitted, the system completes some final processing and validates the data. During this process, the status is set to Submitting.... Typically, you won't see this status as the validation only takes a short time. However, in rare cases it may take a bit longer. Once the processing is complete, the timesheet status automatically updates to either Waiting for Approval or, if there is an error, back to Not Submitted.
Timesheets with the Submitting... status are included under the Not Submitted filter.
If you're a billing or cost manager, and are tracking time entries, select Time Entries from the View By field located in the top, right-hand corner of the page.
