New iPhone App "Dashboard" says "View Team Timesheets"  not View Team Approvals"  WHY? Very misleading.  HOW did this make it through development testing? 

Another black eye.

A lot of feedback was received around the fact that supervisors wanted to access all the timesheets on the mobile app. On the old app supervisor view was limited to submitted timesheets only.

What if a supervisor wants to see all the not submitted timesheets and understand how much time each user has entered? 

On the new app, we thought it would be appropriate to name it as View Team Timesheets instead of just View Team Approvals. To begin with clients using the Punch system can view and edit punches for all the users who report to them. Eventually edit feature will become available to non-punch clients too. So in your case, right now your supervisors can view all not submitted timesheets right from the app. 

We think this will benefit a lot of supervisors who need this information on the go. 

Let me know what your thoughts are around this.

Because of the permission issue with "Time Punch" that has now been resolved, we were unable to see any approvals waiting, so that led me to believe the app was severely broken.  Now that issue is resolved, and we can actually see the "Dashboard Inbox" I guess the issue isn't as large now.

However, my opinion is that for App consistency, within the "Dashboard" I still think "View Team Approvals" would have mode more sense, followed by the nested items for viewing team timesheets, or have 3 buttons, basically adding another for "View Team Approvals".  Since the buzzword "Approvals" is used on tabs in the web app, to me that would have kept it consistent.

Just my opinion.  Thanks for all the hard work.

Thanks for that suggestion, I have marked this as an idea and checked with the mobile PM team, currently this is Not Planned, but we will see if other customers also think along the same lines. This will be looked into during future planning sessions.
