Time Sheets Approved Status is the name of the status that is used for approved time sheets requests in the time sheet workflow. The evidence of this status in the Global Settings allows you to generate for example attendance reports which include only approved time sheets, the same way it may work for calculating people costs on projects and deals. If the value of the setting is empty, reports and project and deal expenses show values from all time sheets.
Double-clicking the Time Sheets Approved Status from the list will bring up the Global Setting card.
Field on the Global Setting Detail
The value field is intended to enter the adjustment value. It is a text value that should be the workflow status name which marks the time sheet as approved. The correct name of this status can be found in the Administration Settings section called Workflow Diagrams and by following these steps:
Select the Workflow Diagrams option in the left menu of the Administration Application.
The list of workflow diagrams will be displayed in the right part of the window from which you select the Time Sheet diagram.
Click the Modify List of Statuses icon.
The list of statuses which are defined for a given workflow will be displayed in the table. We are looking for the status that denotes an approved time sheet – in our case it will be Approved. It is important to work with the name that is listed in the FileAs column, as shown in the picture (and we insert the Approved value into the Time Sheets Approved Status in the Global Settings).
Clicking OK in the lower part of the Global Setting card will save changes and close the card. If you wish to close the Global Setting card without saving any changes, click Cancel.
