To set hours to lock automatically

  1. Go to Projects, and then select a project whose time entries you want to lock. 
  2. In the Time Entry Locking section, select the option you want to use. 

Time entry locking

    Communicate with your team when you plan to lock hours for projects, so they can confirm their time before.
