Goal

You do not want employees to be able to edit timecards once they have been approved, but you want Timekeepers to be able to edit timecards in any status. 

So you make the set up as follows:

All employees have the 'Self Service Timecard Status that Allows User Edits' preference set to:

   Status Allowing Edits: APPROVALS INITIATED
   Past Number of Days: 30
   Future Number of Days: 30

Timekeepers on the other hand has 'Self Service Timecard Status that Allows User Edits' ' preference set to:

   Status Allowing Edits: RETRO
   Past Number of Days: 365
   Future Number of Days: 120

During testing, found that Timekeepers have restricted access as the status allowing user edits preference is actually being evaluated for the employee rather than Timekeeper.
