Notifications can also be automatically sent to employees via e-mail when timesheet has been approved or rejected. Managers can add comments when rejecting a timesheet.

  • Usability Enhancements: A variety of features have been added including wider screen sizes to allow more information to be viewed/edited at once, faster pop-up reminder calendars, e-mail address hyperlinks next to any individual referenced in the suite, and improved screen layouts to better convey key information points.
