Project Server Timesheet: Turn in Final Timesheet RRS feed

  • Question

  • My understanding is that 'Turn in Final Timesheet' is used to turn in your time and task progress for manager approval.  Is there anything different that happens to the data after 'Turn in Final Timesheet' is selected, then before?  In other words, does the timesheet data move from a Working schema to a Published shema in the database - or anything like that?  If not, it is simply for manager approval and to lock the time period, correct?

    Separate but related question:  If you wanted someone other than the Timesheet Manager to approve a person's Admin (PTO) time, how would that be accomplished in PWA?

  • Doz4,

    Timesheets are state-specific, and no matter which state they are in, they are in all databases, as far as I know. That is why it is easire to use Timesheets for reporting hours than project schedule.

    As far as the task updates, they run a separate track. Until the PM approves, and publishes them they are not in either the project plan draft or published db.

    And finally, a timesheet can only have one approver at a time. You might setup a chain of approvals, if you want more than one approver.

    Or another solution is to use the "<label for="ctl00_ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_PWA_PlaceHolderMain_ctl07_ctl04_idRequireLineApprovalBeforeTimeSheetCheckBox">Require line approval before timesheet approval" setting, so that timesheet line wait for PM approval before coming to the Timesheet Manager, and at that point the Timesheet manager only needs to look at admin time because all other hours have already been approved. </label>
