As Manager, you need
  • To be notified when all work has been logged by a team member for a period,

  • Each time a user logs some work (or modifies) :

    • a status will be applied to the Worklog item (Supported statuses are : Created, To validate, To review, Validated),
    • the Worklog item wil be linked to a Timesheet item, represented by an issue in the dedicated project (Issue Type Timesheet),
