Hello, Sai Prasad, I think I’m missing something here. How does enabling “Approve Timesheets” in the Project Manager security group allow folks in that group to get notifications when tasks are updated in the project schedule.

It may be how we are structured that I have not been able to find a solution for us. I head up a team of 4 client managers, who have PM roles (like ensuring the client work is being done on time by their project team), but are not technically PMs (by trade or certification).

So, we prefer them to only make % complete and date change updates in their client schedules. I initially wanted to set up PWA and MS Project such that I would have to approve any updates that the client managers made on behalf of their project team and client updates. Keep in mind that my name is not associated with the project schedule. We were not able to find a way for this to be set up. I have made myself the “Status Manger,” so I get email notifications of when a schedule is updated, but I can’t intervene and approve.

If the “Approve Timesheets” can help to allow this process to work in my environment, can you direct me to more information on it? If I’ve completely miss-understood, then never mind. Thank you! Kerry S.
