TimeSheet.ApproveNonProjectTime method

Office 2013 and later

Changes the state of the specified non-project time items, from pending to approved or rejected.

Namespace:  WebSvcTimeSheet
Assembly:  ProjectServerServices (in ProjectServerServices.dll)

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/ApproveNonProjectTime", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public void ApproveNonProjectTime(
	Guid[] approvedTimesheetLines,
	Guid[] rejectedTimesheetLines
)

Parameters

approvedTimesheetLines
Type: []

The unique identifiers of the TimesheetLines to approve.

rejectedTimesheetLines
Type: []

The unique identifiers of the TimesheetLines to reject.

ApproveNonProjectTime acts on all nonproject timesheet lines for which the user is the timesheet manager.

This method submits jobs to the QueueSystem object. The CorrelationGUID property for the job is equal to the TS_UID property.

Permission

Description

Non-standard

The current user is the timesheet manager of the resource.

The following code example creates a timesheet by using the default server settings. It finds the first line that requires a prior approval, and updates the time. If the default server settings have been changed so that there is no line that requires a prior approval, the example errors out. The timesheet is then submitted without being approved, and is rejected because there was no approval. The time is then approved and the timesheet is submitted again. The submission then succeeds.

NoteNote

You may need to delete old timesheets or create new periods if there are no open periods without timesheets for the sample resource.

For critical information about running this code sample, see Prerequisites for ASMX-based code samples in Project 2013.
