Action: Time Approval

Using the Managers Time Approval ensures your time enteries and subesquent job costings are accurate.  In order to keep your costs up todate, we recommend that Managers approve their team's time entries daily.

Any time values that have not yet been approved appear in the Job's Actual and Billable cost reports highlighted orange.
