Approval Statuses in TeamBoard

For Team Members:

Draft: the timesheet has been saved but not yet submitted for approval. Team members can continue to edit and add entries as needed.

Waiting for Approval: the team member has submitted the timesheet, and it is now awaiting review by the approver.

Rejected: the approver has reviewed the timesheet and found issues that need to be addressed, resulting in rejection. The team member needs to review the rejection comments, correct the issues, and resubmit the timesheet.

Approved: the approver has reviewed and approved the timesheet. The timesheet is now finalized and recorded.

Awaiting Recall Approval: the team member recalls a submitted timesheet for corrections before it is approved, and it is now awaiting the approver's review for the recall action.

Recalled: the approver has approved the recall request, allowing the team member to make necessary changes to the timesheet.

Unapproved: the approver does not approve the recall request, meaning the timesheet remains unchanged. The team member should follow up with the approver to understand why the recall was not approved and address any issues.

For Approvers:

Waiting for Approval: the timesheet has been submitted by a team member and is now awaiting the approver's review and decision.

Awaiting Recall Approval: a recall request for a timesheet has been made by the team member and is now awaiting the approver's review and decision

Configuring Timesheet Settings


Enable Recallable Timesheets:

Go to “App Settings

  • Choose Timesheet Configuration

  • Find the "Recallable" option.


Enable this setting to allow team members to recall their timesheets after submission. This feature is useful for making corrections or adding additional details before the timesheet is approved.

Default Approver:

Go to "My Settings"

  • Choose “Timesheet Configuration” section,

  • Set the "Default Approver" for your timesheets. This ensures that your timesheets are always directed to the appropriate person for approval by default.
