Preventing Employees from Editing Their Timesheets

From your

Applies to ,


By default, users with employee or supervisor level access have the ability to edit their own personal timesheets. If you don’t want employees or supervisors to edit their own timesheets, disable the feature in the Attendance Settings so they can only record their hours by clocking in and out.


  • You must have admin or manager (with “can manage timesheets and pay periods” enabled) level access to change the timesheet settings.
  • If you allow employees and supervisors to edit their own timesheets, they can only make edits to timesheets in open pay periods.


  1. Hover over , then select  Attendance Settings.

  2. In the General section, uncheck the Allow Employees and Supervisors to Enter and Edit Their Own Timesheets option.
  3. Click Save in the top-right corner of the screen.

If you enable location restrictions, When I Work recommends disabling the employee / supervisor ability to edit their timesheet. If you allow them to edit their timesheet, they can edit their clock-in time regardless of location. Manual edits are flagged on the timesheet.
