Under "Settings" -> "General" -> "Approval", you can configure options related to the approval process in 7pace Timetracker.
This is what you will see when you expand the "Approval" section:
|Lock Weeks Automatically||
With this selection checked, when a manager approves or closes a timesheet for one of his/her users, that week is automatically locked so that user can no longer make any additional changes.
If this option is not selected, the "Lock" confirmation dialog box appears after a manager approves or closes a timesheet. The manager can then click "Lock" to lock the week or "Cancel" to leave it unlocked.
|Approval Start Date||
The date from which you want to enable the approval feature.
Once you enable the approval feature, you cannot change the first day of the week. Similarly, all the weeks prior to the approval start date are automatically locked to all users for editing.
|Approval Managers||By clicking "Add Manager", you can give team members "Approval Manager" permissions to view the "Approval" page and to view and approve submitted timesheets. You can also click on the "Is Global" checkbox and assign global permissions to your Approval Managers. This allows them to not only see and approve the timesheets submitted to them specifically for approval, but to view (and potentially approve) all submitted timesheets, regardless of to whom they were assigned.|
|Reset All Approval Data||Resets all approval data, which is in either submitted or approved state. No worklogs are ever deleted during this process.|
