[Project 1865] Automation of closure of Phantom Jobs

When configuring Intercompany agreements with Approved agencies it is now possible to automate the closure of linked Phantom jobs when the Main Job is closed.

Each Approved Agency now has a new option called “Phantom Job Closure” where you can select between the following options:

  1. Don’t close the Phantom Job
  2. Create an amendment for the Phantom Job agency for their approvers to approve
  3. Automatically close the Phantom Job when the Main Job closes

This option defaults to the current behavior “Don’t close the Phantom Job“. If you would like to configure your intercompany agreements automatically close phantom jobs please read the following support article:

[Project 1797] Supervisor Across Ledger

We have an Office Level config called ‘Allow Agresso to override timesheet supervisor’ If this is enabled then we allow Agresso to set the Supervisor.

We use the Resource ID from the STAFF FEED which is the Supervisor Resource ID to look for a user in the same ledger (Agresso Client) who matches the resource id. It is that user whom we set as the user’s Pulse Supervisor.

The issue is that we have cases where the Supervisor is in a different ledger (Agresso Client) and therefore a match is never found and since Resource ID is not globally unique, we are unable to drop the Ledger constraint without risking setting the incorrect user as the Supervisor.


We created a user override of ‘Override Agresso Supervisor’.

We then can set the Supervisor to the correct person which means users who have reports in different ledgers (Agresso Client) only need one login to approve time of their subordinates.
