This is a child page of Configuring Tempo Scheduler, explaining what a Grace Period is. When the Scheduler is used to schedule a closure, users are blocked to add and edit worklogs within an Open Period after the closing date. In order to be able to add and edit to those worklogs after the closing date, they will have to ask the user with the Approve Timesheet permission to grant them a short Grace Period to reopen the access. Users with the Approve Timesheet permission can grant users a Grace Period of any length from the Actions list in the Team Timesheet and Project Timesheet.

  2. Select Period from and Period to dates for the Grace Period that needs to be opened.
  3. Click the Add Grace Period button if you are done or the Cancel link to close without saving.

    Is the grace period meant to be used by managers (tempo admins) when a period has been closed?  Or is it for some other purpose?

    It is not clear what a Grace Period actually represents. What is this feature meant to do?

    1. Added a line to the top of this page, hope it´s clearer now.

  3. Hi, I think I understand what the grace period is use for.  We just tried it out, but still doesn't seem to be able to log hours in the grace period timeframe, how long does it take for the setting to take effect?  I see the open grace periods set in the scheduler section of Tempo Admin.
