Time Sheet Reminder Notifications in PPM 8.03
In PPMC 8.03 there is a scheduled service for sending out the Timesheet reminder notifications.
Does anyone know where are timesheet notification settings. I want to specifically send the notifications on each Monday evening at 8.00 pm reminding about previous week's timesheets.
Any help is much appreciated.
Whether reminder email notifications to submit time sheets are sent to users. Reminders can be sent before unsubmitted time sheets are due, on their due date, or when they become overdue (delinquent). You can find time sheet delinquent report in administration > reports.
In Workbench > Time Mgmt > Time Sheet Policies, you should have at least a time sheet policy that currently used. In this policy in the Notifications tab, you can specify that resources with this time sheet policy will be sent the following types of email notifications:
- Reminders to submit their time sheets, if the resources assigned this policy are required to complete time sheets for each time period.
- Email messages whenever time the resources have submitted for approval gets rejected.
Click New, you see Add Notifications window. The window in Setup tab In the Send the reminder section you will see scheduling configurations. There are three option and depend on time sheet period.
For example, if a Weekly time period ends on Friday, September 3 and the reminder is configured to be sent the last day of a time period, it could be sent at about 12:05 a.m. on Saturday, September 4. If you want each user to receive a reminder each Friday in this example, configure the reminder to be sent each Thursday, the day before the end of the time period.
Please check enclosed screen shots.
- There is a service, Time Sheet Notifications Enables notifications to be sent on time sheets.
- Changes to notification configuration take effect within the time specified for the MAIL_NOTIFICATION_CHECK_INTERVAL parameter in the server.conf file (set to 20 seconds by default)

Thanks for the information.
We are using this timesheet notifications for quite a long time. We send the notification each Monday at 8.00 pm to remind the users to fill in their timesheets for previous week.
However, today suddenly we received the timesheet notification at 9.40 am in the morning, rather it should been received at 8.00 pm today.
So it means the settings for time of sending the notification has got changed somehow. So I am looking for that.
We have already configured these notifications in workbench, however it does not allows us to specify a time.
