Granting a Grace Period to Team Members - Tempo Cloud

Our Cloud Help Center has a new home at

We will no longer be updating Cloud documentation in this space, so please be sure to check the new site for the latest documentation and learning content.

Granting a grace period requires the Approve timesheets permission for the team. Viewing the contents of a timesheet requires the View Team Worklogs permission.

If your administrator has configured the Tempo Scheduler to automatically close periods for logging time, you can grant a grace period to a team member who needs additional time to complete or edit their Timesheet after the period has closed. The grace period can only be granted to a user whose Timesheet is open or waiting for approval and the period needs to be open in the Period Management.
