When submitting Absence time entries, the message "A manager is required" appears, even when a manager is set

Posted on by 35

When attempting to submit an absence Time Entry in Project Operations, the error message "A manager is required for non-project time entries, absence, and vacation" shows up, even if the bookable resource submitting the time entry has a manager set.

The error message that shows up is:

The bookable resource manager is set here:

Anyone know why the user might be prevented from submitting a Time Entry, even when the manager column is set on their bookable resource record?

    Many thanks! Yes I was looking in the wrong place.

    The manager is defined in the User Profile Setting in Dynamics 365 and not in the Bookable Resource setup. Hope this helps.
