2526263 - Approval Task isn't Sent to Person Responsible of the Project Task

Symptom

You have recorded times against a Project Task. The person responsible for this Project Task didn't receive the approval tasks for the time recordings done on the tasks he's responsible for.
All the approvals go to the person responsible at project header level.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Time Administration work centre.
  2. Go to Time Sheets view.
  3. Find the employee who recorded the times.
  4. Select Open Time Sheet.
  5. Select the recorded time.

In the Details of the recorded time, the Approver maintained is the Project Manager from the header level and not the person responsible at the task level.

Cause

The times recorded against projects are always sent for approval to the Project Manager, rather than the person responsible for the project task.

Resolution

This is expected system behaviour. The Person responsible on the Project Task level is simply a reference, it does not impact the system's behaviour.
