How can I Recall/Reject a timesheet approved by another Timesheet Manager? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are setup with Project 2013 using Fixed Approval Routing. All resource timesheets go to their managers (setup as Timesheet Managers) for approval. There are instances where a Timesheet Manager is on vacation and we need a way for someone to Recall/Reject one of their resources' approved timesheets. Our thought was to allow our Project Admins to do this, but we can't figure out how. At this point the Project Admins can see all of the Approved Timesheets but are unable to modify them.

    Does anyone know if/how it can be done?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    If you are using Project Server permissions, versus SharePoint Permissions, to control security in your system, you could use the Delegation feature for this purpose.  You could set up a Delegation session where you access PWA as if you are the manager on vacation, where you can approve or reject timesheets from the people who report to them.  Just a thought.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Dale,

    Appreciate the quick response. That's a good idea. Just confirmed we are able to do what's needed using the Delegation session. Thanks!!
