If you could add a feature where a team member and/or project leader could approve time that would be very helpful. In our organization we like to have the managers approving their subordinates time so that everyone is aware of what is going on. Would be a very attractive feature for us.

FYI our potential user base is around 100 users. This is one of the things we were looking for in software we chose.

Could you please specify what process of approval do you mean?

Do team members have to compose time-sheets ahead of time and send them to project leaders?

Or, is it more like a time audit, when a leader examines logged time?

Not a time audit. A team member would compose a time sheet once their day is done and send it to a supervisor, who then agrees that the time sheet was coded (tags everything correct) correctly/filled out correctly.

The above scheme can be implemented using tags. Team members log the time during the workday. When the day is done, they select all time entries and mark them with a tag NeedsApproval. The manager opens the detailed report, filters it by the NeedsApprovar tag and groups data by user. Then, provided the project manager has the admin role in TMetric, the manager can jump to a person's Time page and make necessary corrections to the time-sheet. Finally, the manager removes the NeedsApproval tag, or replaces it with the Approved tag.

That sounds like it will work. I'm going to get my boss to signup and we'll test the solution to see if its applicable.
