Once a Manager has assigned people, they'll be able to:

  • Approve timesheets for their assigned people.
  • View their assigned people from the Team overview page (Team).
  • Report on their assigned people's time from Reports > Time  and Reports > Detailed time
  • Report on their assigned people's expenses from Reports > Detailed expense.
