I'm not a super technical person so appreciate I may be butchering the technical terms.


We are rolling out CA PPM in my workplace and have a requirement to support enabling of time booking + manager approval for specific staff only dependant on their contract / vendor type.


- vendor A + contract 1 (1000 people) - enable time booking in bulk for these users (upload employee IDs or bulk enable based on the vendor / external company they work for).

- vendor B + contract 2 (2000 people) - disable time booking approval by the manager (default is off) as we do not have contracts in place to enforce that time booking is mandatory and relevant to the underlying vendor invoice.


So the idea is provide a central team or via GUI the ability to provide a bulk list of employees / ids to enable the approval workflow. We've been informed by our implementation partner that there is no bulk upload / enable capability and no way to run a script and upload a file of the employee id's to enable.


Appreciate your thoughts on what is possible either via scripting or the GUI.
