  • Hi Sanjeet,

    1) Indeed autoapproval rules are for task update approvals, not timesheet. You can set the resource himself as his resource manager and it will auto approve the timesheet. Otherwie it will be custom code. You cannot auto reject timesheets exceeding a certain number of hours, but you can specify in the timesheet settings a max number of hours for a timesheet. If the resource tries to submit more tha nthis maximum, he will be prompted and he will have to correct it before he can submit.

    2) I'm not aware of any third party tool doing those specific needs but you can for sure do your own custom development, such as this example. That being said, in my opinion, the objective of the timesheet is for the proejct manager to know if the resources have work as planned. If you copy the planned in the actuals in the timesheets, then they become useless.

    Hope this helps,
