Automatic Approval of Timesheet entered from PWA in Project Server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to bypass the approval mechanism, such that the timesheet entered by resource should be automatically approved and when we open Project Professional, no approval prompt should appear?

  • Hi,

    assuming that your are asking for automatic approval of task updates?

    Each PM can define his own rules for automatic approval. Go to Approvals - Task Updates - Actions - Manage Rules - New Rule. You can define if all updates are to be approved automatically or only if some criteria are met. Check mark "Automatically run this rule" and save.

    However, this will only approve updates. It will not publish these updates. This still needs to be done manually or with custom code.

  • As an administrator will full control over the system, is there a way to create batch automatic approval rules for all approvers in the organization?
