How do I view pending Site Diary entries?
If there are collaborators who are submitting entries for approval, a user with 'Admin' permissions will need to approve the entries. In addition, if pending entries have been created through the Missing Companies feature, they will need to be approved by a user with 'Standard' or 'Admin' permissions. Admins can also choose to reject an entry so that the collaborator must resubmit a new entry. See Approve or Reject Site Diary Entries.
This article will discuss different methods for finding and viewing pending Site Diary entries.
There are multiple ways to view pending entries within the Site Diary. Listed below are methods Procore recommends for finding and viewing pending entries.
Viewing a day or date range where pending entries are present
When viewing a specific day or date range in the Site Diary list view, a banner will appear at the top of the page if any pending entries exist within those days.
View the Site Diary calendar view
The calendar view is used for viewing a large amount of days at a time. If any pending entries exist within a day, a message will be on that day along with the number of pending entries. Clicking that day will open a side panel where the pending entries can be reviewed and approved or rejected.
