How does the Timesheet Auditors Group configuration work?

Hi Andriy,

I like your Time Sheet addon and I want to use it but I need to restrict the visibility of time sheet entries. I read in some post that this is achievable in the configuration since version 2.4.

I tried out the "Timesheet Auditors Group" and "Timesheet Auditors Role" in order to accomplish the desired. I was able to verify the functionality of "Timesheet Auditors Role". After setting this configuration to a specific role all user without this role can't see any entries in the timesheet. But the "Timesheet Auditors Group" doesn't seem to restrict visibility in my setup. I did the following:

1. Set the "Timesheet Auditors Group" to a specific group. This group doesn't have any members. From the configuration's explanation I conclude that now no one should be able to see timesheets for other users.

2. Add Timesheet gadget to a user's dashboard (not member in Timesheet Auditors Group). The gadget is configured to view the timesheet of a different user by setting the "Show entries created by user". After refreshing of the dashboard, I see all the timesheet entries of the other user. But following my reasoning this should't be the case.

Did I make a false assumption concerning the functionality of the "Timesheet Auditors Group" or is there a bug in the configuration? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Martin

Thank you.

Hi Andriy,

first of all thank you for the quick fix but I think it is not completely working as intended. After the fix I can't see any timesheets of other users, whatever I set for "Timesheet Auditors Group" and "Timesheet Auditors Role" in the Timesheet configuration.

Cheers,

Martin

Hi Martin,

Sorry for stupid mistake and thank you for trying so quickly, please see corrected version 2.7.1.

Thank you.

Hi Martin,

Your assumption is correct, and I can see a bug in code in this concern, so I will fix it soon and let you know.

Thank you.

Alright, thank you for the quick reply.

Thank you, Andriy. Now it works properly.
