Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
On the Timesheet approvals page, when the default pull down of a "custom" time range is changed to a different value like "last week", when apply is selected it shows the correct timesheets on the right side. However, when the refresh button on the right side is clicked, the timesheets displayed reverts to the number of timesheets displayed before the time range was changed.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Clicking refresh should not reset the timesheet display to a value/display prior to clicking apply.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log-in to P6 Web (with a user that is a resource and project manager).
  2. Browse to Dashboards > Approve Timesheets
    Note: "Approving as" shows as "Resource Manager" by default
  3. Select "Last week" in the time based filter drop-down, apply
    Note: the timesheets are filtered
  4. Change "Approving as" to "Resource Manager"
    Note: the filter still shows "Last week", but all timesheets show

BUSINESS IMPACT
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users are not seeing the correct information after refresh is clicked.
