The Approvals list can be unhidden to show a log of all timesheet approvals and unapprovals. This setting can be found under the Extensibility section of the Settings page.
Once unhidden, the Approvals list can be found by clicking All Site Content link on the quick launch menu on the left of the page (at the top in 2007, and the bottom in 2010).
Below is a reference of the list's fields.
|Person||User||The owner of a timesheet entry|
|Timesheet for||DateTime (Date only)||The date of the first day of the week the timesheet is for|
|Hours||Number||The total number of hours worked|
|Action||Choice||Whether this was an 'Approve' or 'UnApprove' action|
|Actioner||User||The approver that performed the action|
|Actioned||DateTime||The date and time the action was performed|
This list can be used to trigger actions based on a timesheet being approved. It is preferable to use this list for triggering actions rather than the Timesheets list, as there is usually more than one entry (and hence action) added to the Timesheets list per approval.
This list could also be used in combination with a user list to inform managers of users who have not had their timesheets approved. This is useful where users add their hours at the end of the week, or where they approve their own timesheets.
