The lack of flexibility with this setting is the most frustrating aspect of this system.  The only options are the current week's timesheet (which I will want to file next week, never this week) or the earliest unsubmitted timesheet, which takes me to April 6, 2008.  Why is there not an option for what I would think would be the most common need, the first timesheet following the most recently submitted timesheet?

Hi Andrew,

The "Earliest Unsubmitted timesheet" option was provided to meet what you described as your need. 
I would like to understand why you have 10 year old unsubmitted timesheets, as the general assumption we made, and what seems to be the usage of most of our customers is that all timesheets will be actioned as it moves along. I would be interested to know if there is something we have missed, in light of the 10+ year old unactioned timesheets that you have.

Regards,
Avinash

Until relatively recently, in our organization (or, at least, in some divisions in our organization), filing weekly timesheets was not mandatory and only necessary to record things like vacation and sick time.  As a result, staff could go many weeks without needing to file a timesheet.  As a consequence, there would be many weeks with unfiled timesheets (such that my "Earliest unsubmitted timesheet was from 10 years ago).  I'm sure this is the case in many organizations.  Now the filing is mandatory, so my only two options are to set my default timesheet to show me the 10 year old (oldest unfiled) timesheet or "next week's" timesheet.  What I was asking for was for the system to present me with the first unfiled timesheet after the most recently filed one, which will always be the one that I next want to deal with.
