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.
