  • Question

  • What is the recommended way of restricting users from submitting overallocated timesheets OR have an exception for the Project Manager's auto-approval rule to not automatically approve a timesheet that has over-allocated hours?

  • Hi,

    i believe this would require a custom development effort to be notify PMs about timesheet over-allocation, since it cant be done through OOB options available.

    you may write a event handler related to timesheet submission event, and perform your required action based on overallocation such as notifying PM through email about over-allocation OR stop user to submit time-sheet for approval unless user discusses this situation with PM first to seek PM's consent.

    In order to know about Project Server event handlers, please see the below link: (these msdn article are not specifically for 2013 version, but concept is still applies to 2010/2013 PS versions)
