2268337 - TimeSheet: Workflows are allowing employees to edit admin configurations


Timesheet Enty shows up in wokflows and allows managers to edit the object configurations.

Manager and HR roles are not supposed to be able to edit these objects in a workflow, then they won't be able to edit/change the timesheet data for their employees as well.

The association "Employee Time Sheet Entry" under Object Definition "Employee Time Sheet" is Editable and Allowance Type permission is provided in Role-based Permission.

Change the visibility of the "Employee Time Sheet Entry" association under "Employee Time Sheet" Object Definition from 'Editable' to 'Not Visible' to resolve this issue.


 And change Role based permssion access on Allowance Type to view only, remove edit option.


Go to "Manage Permission Role" under the "Allowance Type" secured category you have used in its object definition. (Miscellaneous permission should be used generally).

Make sure only view permission is provided for 'Allowance Type" Object.
