Project Manager Approval Path Ignored

I am testing Project Manager approval paths and cannot seem to get it to work. I have projects with a project manager assigned, an approval path with the role of Project Manager and an employee who's Timesheet Approval Path is set to Project Manager. The timesheet submissions continue to default to system approval. I even tried deleting the system approval path.

The other thing I'm noticing when testing (also testing Punch timesheets) is when I delete a punch timesheet from Payroll, the punches are not actually deleted. Is the timesheet actually being deleted? Is this expected behavior?

Hi Heather,

For the first part of your question, I would like to have a short call with you in order to look at the setup and confirm what is going wrong. As for your second question, the punches are not deleted when you delete the timesheet. You have to manually delete the punches and then the timesheet. This is the system behavior.

Hi Aashnee,

Thank you for confirming the method for deleting punch timesheets. A call would be great to discuss the other question. I am in the office for another half hour today if you have time.

Hi Heather,

Thank you for your time here. As confirmed, the issue existed because you were not allocating the projects in the time distribution grid component. Punching in against the project will not pull the project manager for approval. The allocation to these projects in the time distribution grid is necessary.
