Is there a way to have a worklog attribute remain editable (open) after a timesheet is approved?

We created an "invoiced" checkbox as worklog attribute so that we can keep track  -by worklog - of the time that has been invoiced. 

By nature of our business model, we often bill for hours on a ticket that has not been completed yet (such as T&M tickets) so we must be able to invoice by worklog. 

Unfortunately we have found that once the timesheet is approved, we can no longer check the invoiced box, and this is precisely when we nedd to be able to do so so we know that that is the final # of hours to be invoiced.

You can do this in the Report view, as long as the period hasn't been closed and/or the Account hasn't been approved.  You can also do this in the Timesheets Worklog Calendar, as long as the Timesheet hasn't been approved, and therefore closed.

Please note that there was a small improvement in the latest release (Timesheets 7.16.4), which fixed a problem that prevented you from changing worklog Attributes in the report view, after the timesheet has been closed.  If you have not yet updated to this latest release, it may explain the problem.
