I accidentally approved a timesheet


I accidentally approved a timesheet before I reviewed it.


If you are the final approver for this timesheet, and it is marked as Approved, it has not yet been processed, though it has been sent for processing. Anyone with Adjust permissions can make changes to the timesheet.

Note: If the timesheet is marked as Processed, it has already been processed, and changes cannot be made through Microsoft Office Project Web Access. A third-party tool now owns the data. Contact your manager or administrator to determine if you can make changes to a processed timesheet outside of Office Project Web Access.

If you are not the final approver for this timesheet, and the timesheet status is set to Submitted or Acceptable, you can recall the timesheet:

  1. On the Quick Launch, under Approvals, click Timesheet.

  2. In the filter area on the Review My Timesheets page, click Approved By Me.

  3. Select the date or resource filter options, or both, for the timesheet type.

    Note: For more information on filtering the list of timesheets, see Change how you display (or find) information in a timesheet.

  4. In the list of timesheets, select the check box in the left column for each timesheet that you want to recall.

  5. Click Recall.

Why can't I perform some actions in Project Web Access?

Depending on the permissions settings you used to log on to Project Web Access, you may not be able to see or use certain features. Also, what you see on some pages may differ from what is documented if your server administrator customized Project Web Access and did not customize the Help to match.
