Department timesheet periods - no way to distinguish them

We are trying to ensure that all users have the right timesheet period for department approval. The Timesheet Period table only displays the top level department name, not the whole department name,; therefore, we are not able to tell which true department has the assigned weekly month-end timesheet and which has the weekly. The only thing we can see to do is just create a new one, but that is taking a shot in the dark that we are getting the right department assigned. There are no reports available to tell us the timesheet period assignments. Has anyone built a report that gives you this information?

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your time today.

I am summarising our conversation here:

You have a lot of departments with same sub departments. i.e. two departments named Department 1 and Department 2 have sub department called Sub 1 under them. When you create a new timesheet period for department 1 - Sub 1 on the timesheet period list page it only displays Sub 1 and not the complete path. The issue arises when you created another timesheet period for Department 2 - Sub 1 as the same is displayed as Sub 1 on the timesheet period list page as well. It now gets confusing to decide which department timesheet period to pick for deletion. 

What you will need is either a complete path or at least a column that shows what is the parent department.

Unfortunately, right now it is not possible but this seems to be a valid idea. I have put this across to my product management team for a look through and will keep you updated on the progress.

Thanks,
