    After a few tests, I suggest that you allow updating billableLength on those conditions after week is approved:

    • API User has billing editing right
    • Week is not locked; this last item would fit quite well with our process and would solve our problems

    We would really appreciated if you could get a quick check on that, as it is problematic for us at this moment.

    Hello Jean-Sebastien!

    first of all, thank you for the detailed description. The feature request makes sense to us and the ability to edit 'billable' attribute via API is something we would like to implement. I do not have any ETA at the moment, but we will put it in our backlog. The effort is small for this one, so I hope I will be able to present some good news soon!

    All the best,
    R.

    Hello Jean-Sebastien,

    we started working on the feature request, but during development we found out that the impact is bigger than we expected. Unfortunately, this means we need to decrease priority of this feature and see if it gathers more upvotes first. Sorry for the bad news.

    All the best,
    Roman

    Oh, that's disappointing, but I understand. We will manage for a while, as we have to double the inputs on our side, but the sooner it gets done for us, the better. Thanks for keeping me updated and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question.

    Is there another way, for example via API to "unlock" / "unapprove" the week, edit billable time in API and then re-lock / re-approve week in API without notifying user? Would that be feasible with the actual API ? (I couldn't find any reference to that)

    Hi Jean-Sebastien, 

    sorry for the late response. I checked with our technical team, but it is not possible via the API to re-open/un-approve and then re-approve weeks from an admin perspective yet (it is only possible to revoke your own timesheet submission, as long it has not been approved yet). 

    Unfortunately, the priority of your initial feature request has not been increased yet and looking at our current roadmap I have to admit that it doesn't look like we will be implementing this in the near future. I am very sorry that I don't have better news for you, but we will keep you updated if anything changes.

    All the best, Nici

    Hi Nicole, thanks for the update; do you maybe have any other idea how we could edit billable time or billable flag via API (after week has been approved) ? Or the only way is waiting for this feature ? 

    I'm trying to figure out a way to avoid updating in HR system and in 7Pace manually almost each week for each employee. This is a real struggle on our end.

    Thanks.
