Approving accounts

Team leads and other users with Approve Timesheet permission can approve the account. Once the account is approved, no worklogs on the account report for the period can be edited. To approve an account, click the cogwheel in the account row, and select Approve from the list.

The account approval process works only when the period is a calendar month, and the available actions depend on the status of the period that is configured in Tempo period management.

  • Approve - Disabled until the period has been closed for team members.
  • Revoke Approval - Enabled only for approved items, if the period is open for users with Approve Timesheets permission.

A red dot indicates an unapproved account, and a green dot indicates an approved account. The approval process depends on the Period management status for team leads (or other users with the Approve Timesheet permission) and team members.
