Approval for a timesheet can be requested for a single week or a whole month. When you configure weekly approvals, users can request approval for the entire week while monthly approvals will, unsurprisingly, submit approval for a full month,
Split the last week of the month into two approvals?
This option is only available when weekly timesheet approvals are enabled. With this option enabled, the last week of the month can be divided into two separate approvals.
For example, May 2022 ends on Tuesday, the 31st of May. If you want to run a report on all approved hours for the month of May you may need to wait until Friday the 3rd of June before users send in their weekly timesheet for approval.
With the split approval function enabled, users can request approval on Tuesday the 31st of May for the last days of May and Friday for the first days of June.
