Sync Approval Status to PR Timecard Batch

If desired, you can have the portal submission and approval actions post directly to the timecard batch on each line item. This will allow you to filter and sort by status.

In addition to using the Timecard Dashboard, this can help isolate unapproved and unsubmitted timecards in the PR Timecard Entry batch in Vista.

To enable this functionality, simply add a user defined field to the PR Timecard Entry form called "udApprovalStatus" (for Job Approval, make it "udJobApprovalStatus"). The input length for the field must be 15 characters.
