Occasionally, a Reporter will realize that they made a mistake on their time form (entered data under the wrong Activity, for example) and will reach out for the form to be reopened for them. Sometimes the form will be in the Pending status and sometimes it will already be Completed, but both can be reopened.
Supporters can reopen a time study for any of their assigned Reporters.
Admins can reopen a time study for all users.
