Set up Timesheet Approvals

In this article, you'll learn about the optional feature of how to set up Timesheet Approvers so that Time booked to Internal Codes can be approved or rejected once they have been submitted. Project Time can also be approved by the Timesheet Approver or the relevant Project Manager dependent on your CMap configuration. For approval of Project Time, the designated Project Manager, Owner and Co-Pilot will be set up to approve this automatically when they are assigned a Project.

This is an Optional Feature which will need to be enabled in your CMap instance. Please contact CMap Support to discuss this further.

1. From your Dashboard, go to the Admin Tab by selecting the  icon. On the side navigation bar, under USERS & SECURITY, select Your Users.

2. Select the relevant User from the list or you have two options for how to find a User:

  • Use the search field: this will search all CMap users.
  • Use the filter options: You can search by the Office the user is based in, or by their Status, for example, whether they are an employee or a contractor.

3. Select the relevant User’s name to enter their User Profile. Scroll down the page to find Timesheet Approver.

4. Press Select Approver to see a drop-down list of Users' names and select the person who will be responsible for approving the Internal Time.

5. To add a Second Approver, move down one box and press Select Approver. Select the second person who will be responsible for approving the Internal Time.

Second Approvers are optional. They are useful for when the Timesheet Approver cannot approve the user’s Timesheet.

6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you can press Save to keep your changes or Cancel to return to the original user settings.

Hopefully, you can now set up Timesheet Approvals so that a designated individual, as well as an optional Second Approver, can review, approve and reject Timesheets. This means you can provide feedback for the user so that they can go back into their Timesheet and make the necessary changes.
