Approve or Reject Site Diary Entries

Objective

To approve or reject pending entries in the project's Site Diary tool.

Background

If there are collaborators who are submitting register entries for approval, a user with 'Admin' permissions will need to approve the entries before they are displayed as a part of the project's official site diary. 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. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions
  • Additional Information:
    • If you reject a collaborator entry, they will see a 'Resubmit' button next to their entry in the Site Diary.
    • Users with the 'Collaborator Entry Only' granular permission enabled on their permission template are limited to the following conditions:
      • Collaborators can only see the registers that have been configured for Collaborator Entry in the Site Diary tool's configure settings (such as the Working Hours, Daily Construction Report, Notes and Deliveries registers). See Configure Advanced Settings: Site Diary.
        Note: By default, the Daily Construction Report register is not enabled on projects. See Allow Collaborators to Create Delivery or Daily Construction Registers.
      • Collaborators can only select their own company or users from their company in related drop-down menus.
      • Collaborators can only see the entries that they have submitted and can edit or delete their own entries until the entries have been approved.
