If you want to edit any items on this expense claim on behalf of the other person, you need to do so in ghost mode. Read how to edit timesheets/expense claims in ghost mode.

Tip!As a Metis admin, you can approve any item (timesheet or expense claim) without being the designated approver. If you approve any item through Manage, it will be removed from the approver's list of approvals to be actioned (on their Homepage and Timesheets & Expenses area). You will then be listed as the approver where the status is shown (see above image).
