In My Hours, by default, each entered time log is saved and submitted automatically. This means that the administrator is able to view the time log as soon as a team member has entered it.
This works for some teams, and some would rather see the members submit the timesheet manually when they are completely finished with them. This way the administrators and managers can be sure that the data in reports is final and that the timesheet does not need any further edits. This also allows the members to keep the draft of their timesheet as 'Unsubmitted time' and polish it with final edits before submitting it.
Manual timesheet submission can be set on the account level, for all members, if you go to Account admin > General settings.

All unsubmitted entries are marked with the blue border:

Team members can make edits to submitted hours if needed, and then simply submit the timesheet again.
