In most of the organizations, getting timesheets approved through
authorized people is essential.
The Timesheet approval process makes sure that the employee timesheet
is validated and approved by an authorized project manager, supervisor or other
designated person. This practice ensures that the employee works as per the
company policy and reports the work done correctly for proper invoicing

Types of Approval Routing:
- Manual Routing: In this type of routing, the timesheet
can be routed to anyone in the organization.
While submitting a timesheet, the employee can select an
approver from the dropdown list and submit his timesheet.
- Automated Routing: In this type, the administrator sets up an approver for the
user, and once the timesheet is submitted, it is automatically routed to the approver.
Routing can be done to at most three different people.
