Automatic Approval of timesheets at the resource level RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have a Manager that would like all of the timesheets submitted from her resources (she is both their Resource Manager and Timesheet Approver) to be automatically approved, rather than her needing to approve them.  The tasks the Manager's resources use vary based on client work they engage in so we need to do this at the resource level, not the task level.

  • Hi Kate,

    Simply edit the resources in question, and select the resources themselfes as the timesheet manager. Then the submitted timesheets of those resources will be automatically approved.

    Did I get it right?

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Kate,

    If you want your manager to automatically approve the timesheet and status updates , try creating an approval rule from approval center.

    By default if you set the resource himself as Timesheet manager, it would be approved automatically.

    Status manager would be approving the status updates.

  • Hi Kate

    If I understand correctly, you want the automatic approval for specific resources.

    You can create a rule in approval center (approval center -> Manage rules -> New) and specify the resources to whom the rule applies under "Resources" section.
