Locking Actual Hours

Locking the actual hours for a certain date can be done by any Timesheet user in Silverbucket. This is performed by using the Lock-icon found above the timesheet.

Hover over the lock icon gives more information about the feature

As the icon is clicked you get more information about what will happen:

A popup-dialog about the procedure. This will lock the hours until 15h of November

As we click 'Accept' the fields before the chosen date are greyed out and can no longer be edited by the user.

These hours can no longer be edited. Hours before this week are locked, as well

Only admins of Silverbucket can re-open the hour registering for basic users. By choosing the user from Person Selection (top-right corner of Timesheet feature):

Clicking the 'Show person selection' brings out a drop down list

You can search the desired used ('Basic User' in this case):

You can search for the person by name

As you are on the corresponding person's Timesheet view, you can open the editing for the chosen user by clicking on any of the lock icons on any week.
By clicking on the 14th of November, we can open that day and everything after it

As we click 'Accept' the fields are open for editing, again.

We can edit the missing hours for Friday now that it's open for editing

Locking hours is useful for projects where the customer is billed based on the actual hours at certain date.
