Timesheet Manager in Project Server 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can anyone send me the Timesheet process steps in Project Server 2013?

    1. I would like to set someone else as my timesheet manager but while creating a user when i click browse button in timesheet manager field i do not see any resources.

    2. Timesheet is automatically approved by default, to change that process i enabled Require line approval before timesheet approval option in server settings - timesheet settings and defaults. After doing this i submitted my timesheet, it shows the status " your timesheet has been sent to "usernamel" for approval. The user himself is the timesheet manager, When i click on Approvals option nothing is available. How to approve it?

    Please help.

    Is there a forum which explains the process of timesheet.

    Just to add on to the previous reply,

    1) To be able to set as a Timesheet Manager, the user needs to be in the "Timesheet Managers" list, which can be set under Server Settings >> Timesheet Managers

    2) As long as the user is his own Timesheet Manager, the timesheet gets approved automatically.

    3) When you select "Line Approval Required", that means that the approvals from Project Managers are required before the timesheet manager sees the timesheet.

    In your scenario, check who the status managers are for all the projects in that timesheet. Have them all approve the updates. Then, because the User himself is the TS Manager, the timesheet will get approved automatically.

  • Hi Gokulraj,

    You need to manually populate the timesheet manager in Server Settings->Timesheet Managers

  • Has anyone gotten the Project Online UI to display the selection of a Timesheet Manager? I don't have this working even though I have Fixed Approval Routing disabled..
