We have released a new module associated to Timesheets that may be interesting to some of you.

Timesheets in Odoo can be validated by users belonging to the group “Human Resources / Officer”.

However it is frequent for companies allow to employees outside of the Human Resources group to validate timesheet.

We have released a new module that allows a user outside of the Human Resources groups to validate timesheets. A rule is predefined, but it is flexible enough to accept extensions.

At the time when a user submits a timesheet to the Manager, the application determines the validators. Only those validators or employees in the groups of Human Resources (Officer / Manager) are capable of approving the timesheet.

The current rule sets as validators of a timesheet:

The head of the department that the employee belongs to
- In case that the employee is head of the department, it will attempt to add the head of the parent department instead.
- The employee’s direct manager

The list of validators is visible in the employee’s timesheet.

The module is available in version 7 here:

And has been submitted to the OCA:
