Most project users do not need to have their entries approved by a supervisor since nearly all project entries are made with the Time Entry form. The default account setting is to allow manual project entries without generating alerts. If you choose to enable approvals, then alerts will be created and an email sent to the user’s supervisor each time a user makes a project entry. Please be aware that if users enter project time frequently, it could amount to quite a few emails.
If one or more alerts exist, an Alerts button will display over the Dashboard button at the top of the left menu. If there is no Alerts button in the left menu, then there are no current alerts. Alerts can be authorized, denied, or edited by selecting the desired actions on the Alerts page. The Alerts page contains more in-depth instructions on how to resolve alerts. All alerts must be resolved before archiving the project time.
