Clarity PPM On Premise


End users would like to button labeled 'Return' to 'Reject' as it is more obvious action to reject a timesheet.
They have mistaken the 'Return' to mean return to previous page.
How can the button be relabeled?

2.Make a copy of the ppm-ux.war file as a backup. Linux “cp ppm-ux.war ppm-ux-bkp.war”.
