  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using PS 2010. Two resources with same previlege submited timesheet to the Project Mnager who has the accept timesheet previlege. The project manager has to approve the timesheet and forward it to resource manager. When the project manager approve the timesheet, for one resource select next approver option is availbale, but other resource there is option and it is forwared to project manager's timesheet manager. Please help me to resolve the issue. We are not using Fixed Approval Routing.

    Thanks in advance.


    Thanks, Arun

  • Hi Arun,

    As you said, select next approver option is availbale for one resource, what is the RBS of this resource? FOr other resource, who is not getting the option, what is the RBS level for him/her? I would suggest to validate the RBS.
    Could be helpful for you: As dale suggested in article.
    The Timesheet approval automatically stops with the first person who has Approve Timesheets permission, so that is why your "chain" of approvers does not work the way you think it should.

  • We are doing in the same way, instead of creating new group for timesheet reviewer, We have given accept timesheet option for project manager group. So they can receive the timesheet from resource and after review it will be forward to the resource managers  depending upon their  technical group by selecting the next approver. For one resource it is showing the option, for other resource, there is no next approver slect option and it is forwarded to default timesheet manager of project mnager.
    Thanks, Arun

  • Does your another resource who doesn't see next approver option, having a direct permission of "Accept timesheet" ?
