Prevent Employees from recording time on projects not assigned to

Hi all,

Is there a way to prevent Employees from recording time on projects/project tasks that they are not assigned to?

What we see is that when an Employee creates a time sheet, they can enter any valid project ID or project task ID, and as long as the project or task is active, the time entry matches the project/task date range, and the accounting period is not closed, the time record can be saved and released, even if the employee is not assigned to the project or task (not indirectly via the Org Unit either).

This does create a mandatory approval task for the project manager, but in cases where the PM manages many projects with many contributors, they lose track of who is allowed to write time on which project, so the approvals process does not stop the issue.
