On : 9.2 version, Approvals

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Approval Location Setting on Payable Time is not working correctly

The Time reporting template is configured to allow approval of Payable Time on Detail Page Only. It's working correctly in most cases; however, Select checkbox and Approve/Deny/Pushback buttons are displayed for certain employees.
On Approve Payable Time page there is an issue which causes the page to erroneously display Select checkbox for certain employees when Start Date on the page is earlier than employee’s enrollment in TL date.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The checkbox should not be grayed out.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Employee KUTL101 is enrolled in workgroup KUTL3WRKGP and Taskgroup KUTSKGRP9. She has KUTRTMP01 and KUTRTMP02 Time Reporting Templates assigned to her.
2. Configure these templates to allow approval of Payable Time on Detail Page only.
3. Submit time for employee KUTL101 for the week beginning 3/20/17
4. Log in as Approver (KUTL100) and approve time for the employee
5. Run Time Admin
6. Log in as Approver (KUTL100), navigate to Approve Payable Time.
Note that Select checkbox is grayed out and no Approve/Deny/Pushback buttons are not present, as expected.
7. Modify Time Reporter Data for employee KUTL103 so that employee is enrolled in TL as of 3/22/17, and Workgroup/Taskgroup/Time Reporting Template is the same as KUTL101
8. Submit and approve Reported Time for KUTL103 on 3/22 and 3/23
9. Run Time Admin for employee KUTL103:
10. Log in as Approver (KUTL100), navigate to Approve Payable Time
Note that Select checkbox is enabled for employee KUTL103 (NOT as expected) and Approve/Deny/Push Back buttons are now present.
11. Change Start Date on the page to 3/23/17.
Note that Select check box is now grayed out for KUTL103, and Approve/Deny/Pushback buttons are gone.

Conclusion: There is a bug on Approve Payable Time page which causes the page to erroneously display Select checkbox for certain employees when Start Date on the page is earlier than employee’s enrollment in TL date.
