How do I unlock a timesheet? (Desktop)

Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 08:57 AM

Gone to all the trouble of reviewing your timesheets only to find that something needs changing? We've got you.

  1. Head over to the timesheets page by clicking on the 'Timesheets' navigation item on the left of your screen. 

  2. Use the pay period selector above the employee menu to select the correct period to export. A period with a green tick icon is already fully approved and ready to be exported.

  3. Find the employee you need to unapprove a timesheet for in the menu. The filters and search can be used to make this quicker if you have a long list of employees. Click on the employee to view their timesheets.

  4. Here you’ll see scheduled and unscheduled timesheet entries for shifts an employee has clocked into. Any time entries that have already been confirmed will display a green tick icon to their left.

  5. On the right of each time entry row, you can find an action menu. Click this to open the options and then choose ‘Unapprove’. A confirmation dialog will open to ensure this action is what you intended. Click ‘Confirm' if you wish to continue.

  6. Once unapproved you can make any necessary changes to the timesheet through the ‘Edit’ action. When the changes have been saved you can approve the timesheet again from the same menu.
