Hi.

I want to ensure that all our users settings are set to "Default Timesheet to Display: Earliest Unsubmitted Timesheet". I can't see how do that when I do a mass edit.

If it can't be done that way, then is there a report that shows me the users current settings? 

Thanks, Elaine

Hi Elaine,

In order to set the default Timesheet to Display option to Earliest Unsubmitted Timesheet for everyone, go to Administration - User Settings and set the option as required. 

All the users who haven't edited this option by going to the settings section in their profiles will have this updated automatically. For the others who have edited it manually will have to change themselves

Thanks,

Hi Aashnee. 

Ah yes! I've now remembered that we actually did this back in Jul17. Some people have since changed this themselves and are sometimes submitting the wrong week! 

To ensure those people don't make that error again, when I go into the Admin user settings and it already shows "Earliest Unsubmitted Timesheet", can I just highlight it again and then save, or will that not make any change?

Thanks, Elaine

Hi Elaine,

Can we get on a call for discussing the users who haven't had the option updated?

Thanks,

Hi Aashnee.

I couldn't find a report to find out who hasn't (original post). Is there one that can show me? 

This would solve my problem, as I think only a few people have manually changed it since Jul17.

Hi Elaine,

Unfortunately, we currently don't have a report specifying the option set in the user settings for each user. However, we can provide you the details from our side. Is there a convenient time to reach you in order to discuss the same?

Thanks
