Approve a Timesheet

When the owner sends a Timesheet for approval, the approver(s) selected on the form receives a Review Timesheet task. The task includes a due date for completion.

  • To make changes, click Edit Timesheet on the Documents Under Review section title bar. The Timesheet opens in a new window. Click Save to retain updates to the expense form. Use Cancel to close without saving.

3. Make any updates to the task. For example:

  • Add comments or descriptions in the Task Details or Notes (Use the Task Details space when you need rich text options such as formatting text and inserting links and a variety of file types.)
  • Associate files to the task. The Attachments (Documents) section is a Windows Explorer-like tree view structure in which you can upload files from your desktop and share drives, and create folders.

4. To approve the Timesheet, click the Approve Timesheet button located in the Summary space of the task page.
