Approve Project Time - show all statuses

Hi,

Project managers can approve timesheets connected to their projects. They see individual inputs to approve in the "Approve Project Time" section. But out of box, they see only inputs that correspond to the "Submitted" status. Please, is it possible to show all entries in this table - meaning also already previously approved or rejected time entries and not only the submitted status?

Thanks a lot,
Michaela

Re: Approve Project Time - show all statuses

Alexander,

Thank you for your reply. Is it really impossible? I'm looking not only for possibility to change this using the PPM client, but possibly if a solution exists that would require changing JSP files, we'd go for it... but so far I didn't figure out how to change this (though we've changed other things in the Approve Project Time table in JSPs - namely by modifying SearchTimeSheetLinesToApprove.jsp).

Any idea somebody?

Thanks a lot,
Michaela

Michaela,

What exactly is it you're trying to accomplish? A summary view of all the time sheet lines for a given project?

Hi Erik,

Yes, that's what we're trying to accomplish.

Thanks for any ideas

Re: Approve Project Time - show all statuses

I think what I would do (if you're in 7.x) is just create a custom portlet (of the 'Project Overview' type) that contains this info and add it to your project template. Downside is that you will also have to manually add it to any in-flight projects as adding it to the template only affects projects created after that change.

This thread contains a how-to on adding a portlet to your Project Overview page:

Does this help?

Thanks Erik,

We thought there might be a simplier way do do that (just by the modifications of those JSPs), but now I see that we'll need to get to the portlet stuff. Thank you for the portlet document that you provided in that other thread, we'll refer to it.
