Draft - you can continue to make updates until submitted.

Approved - approved by your manager and can no longer be edited.
Declined - rejected by your manager and can be edited so you can resubmit.
Time entries can be added to any active timesheet no matter what the status is.

Please notify your payroll admin if you have more hours to add against a closed pay period. Your payroll admin may ask that you send them screenshots so that they can add those hours as a Manual Pay in the Smartly website.
All completed timesheets will automatically move to History once they’ve been paid.
If you are unable to see timesheets on your Smartly mobile app pleases notify your payroll administrator. Payroll administrators can check employee settings and enable access to timesheets through the self service section on the Smartly website.
