Editing timesheet validation rules - confusion over buttons

Maybe its me but I am confused over the WARNING/ERROR button when editing validation rules.

For a 'warning' the button should be ON and for an 'error' the button should be OFF.  However, what means ON and OFF when the buttons are BLACK and WHITE!!!

I think ON is WHITE but the GUI highlights the button in BLACK when selected e.g. click a button that is WHITE it changes to BLACK, but if you click on a BLACK button is remains BLACK!!! 

I have raised this because we thought comments in the timesheet were set to mandatory and hence will be an 'error' if a user has entered time on his timesheet without adding a comment.  However, we have had a user submitting a timesheet with no comments. This makes me think that the configuration is set to 'warning'. This means WHITE is ON.

Maybe RED and GREEN would be better colours to use!!  Also, if an option is selected it is regarded as being ON rather than OFF (if BLACK means OFF )

Hello Ann,

Thank you for posting your query in Replicon Community.

I understand, your requirement is to have the ON and OFF (colors changed)

Timesheet validation is achieved via workflow condition and, there are 2 workflow conditions :

-Error prevent submission
-Warning prevent submission

If the Warning is set to "ON" then Error is set to "OFF"


This is available under Administration > Timesheet Validation Rules > Mandatory Comments

Now, coming back to the timesheet template workflow configuration, you can enable the required workflow:

I understand, you just want the warning and Error to be two different options, with the toggle button to turn OFF and ON, with a different color, rather than black and white.

I have assigned this post to our Product Management team so that they can review it and share their thoughts.

We appreciate your time and efforts, to post this in our Community.
