  • When a the timesheet is in approved status then you can only make an amendment. In the new Time Sheet UI, if the user is allowed to make an amendment, he or she can simply change it.
  • To correct a time sheet that's already been approved, go to the day on which you want to make changes, make your changes, and submit the time sheet again.
  • If the employee can't change his/her time sheet that has been approved, their manager or HR administrator needs to change it for them.
  • The system then automatically creates the amendment. This was different in the old UI, because there was a button for making an amendment.
