Allow External Users to Approve Time
Need the ability to allow an external user to view and approve specified users times. The external user may have no association with the employment of resources and might not enter time into the system themselves.

For some of my customers, I need them to approve time that relate to them. They need to be able to see start/stop time, project it was assigned to and the description of the activities (if any).
Preferably, this should be presented in a weekly view with the ability to brand the layout.
I should be notified when the customer either approve or reject the timesheet. Extra points: When the customer reject, they could enter some reason for rejecting, but not make it mandatory.
I second the comment in relation to consulting companies. This would be a very useful feature

Consulting companies need to allow external people (clients) to approve time by the project.
We need the ability for our clients to sign off on the time an employee spends at their residence. Basically a simple "finger signature" for the time is fine. This provides an extra level of checks and balance.
Thank you for posting this Matthew! I can't wait to see all of the great feedback we get for this :)
