Reproducing the Issue

  1. Employee fills Time sheet and Submits
  2. Manager approves the Time Sheet


  1. It is not possible for the manager to  be able to unlock the time sheet for the employee if needed , after it is approved.
  2. With the Time Recording Admissibility, you can define if an employee is allowed to do an amendment at all and if yes, how many weeks back into the past this is possible.
  3. If the employee is not allowed to do any amendment, the manager cannot unlock a specific Time Sheet.
  4. In this case, the manager himself or an administrator has to do the changes on the employee's approved time sheet
