The time sheet status changes to Active without going for manager's approval.
Reproducing the Issue
1. Go to Home work center.
2. Select Self Services view.
3. Select Edit Time Sheet link.
4. The Timesheet shows Active status even though it should be going to the line manager for approval.
If an employee enters their time via the Self Services view under the Home work center, then these time entries will go for approval.
If a time administrator creates times for an employee in the Time Administration workcenter then these times will be released without manager approval.
This is expected system behavior. All time recordings which have been directly created in the Time Administration workcenter by a time administrator appear with status Active in the employee's time sheet.
