After a timesheet has been approved in Xero payroll, you may need to revert it back to a draft status so it can be edited. In this tutorial, we will revert an approved timesheet in Xero’s demo company.

How to Revert an Approved Timesheet in Xero

In Xero, you can only revert timesheets that have been approved and not yet processed. As there are no timesheets with this status in Xero’s demo company, we need to create one. To do this, follow the steps in our how to add a timesheet tutorial and approve it.

Once you have done this, you should see an approved timesheet for Lebron James in the main timesheets screen:

  • Save it as a draft.
  • Approve it.
  • Cancel it.
