I'm trying to find a way to allow users to create tasks in timesheets conditional on a project manager's approval. I was hoping to use a process to achieve this, and to have it kick off any time a task was created by someone other than the PM. When mocking it up, however, it doesn't want to kickoff from the timesheet, only from creating a new task from within a project. Is there any way to start a process on the task object from within a timesheet? Do you have any other suggestions on how to execute this idea?
This is what comes to my mind
1. Create an object to capture the necessary project/task details
2. The resource would fill up the details and save them. Then they manually start a process that send an action item to the PM.
2.1 If the PM approves the action item, kick off a process similar to this (https://communities.ca.com/message/118459057 )
2.2 If the PM rejects, no action taken
1. Create a sub-page within the project to capture the necessary task details
We hadn't been thinking of the custom object route, but it should work pretty well. Thanks for the ideas!!
