You can check the status of your employees' Startwork from Crew Management.
Check out the image below for examples of Startwork statuses.
NOTE: If a packet is pending approval by one more approvers, its status will read "Packet submitted, pending approval." If you have Permission, you can reference the Approval Pipeline for more specific information about the packet's progress through the Project's approval workflow. Once a packet receives all the Approval Signatures it needs, the Startwork status in Crew Management will change to "Packet Approved."
