How to remove resource specific administrative time in PWA 2010 timesheet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm looking for a way to prevent contracted resources from entering administrative time (i.e. vacation, holiday, etc.) in timesheets. Doing this from tasks does not appear to be an option.

    Updated:

    On the other hand, I want full-time employees to be able to enter administrative time they earn or are granted by the company. Contractors will not have access to administrative time.


    Updated again:

    I can make the administrative time viewable, in the server settings -> Administrative Time, but it's not resource specific.

    No, there is no way to prevent a certain group of people from entering time on Administrative tasks, but to allow them to enter time on tasks on the Timesheet page.  It's basically all or nothing.  If a user can create a timesheet and enter time, he/she can enter time on anything on that page. Given this fact, you will probably need to make this a training and performance issue with your contractors.  Train them on what types of time they can enter on the Timesheet page and then hold them accountable for this behavior.  Also, you should train your timesheet approvers to reject any time entered by contractors on administrative tasks.  Hope this helps.
