Change Date on Timesheet

We just released another small, but useful feature on your timesheet. On the Day View, after you click on “Edit” for a time entry, you’ll see a link “Change Date” on the lower right corner:

Click on it and you’ll see a date field for you to move the entry to another date.

Hope you find this new feature useful, and let us know if you have any questions for feedback.

    All the little changes recently have been great. Keep up the good work.

    If I may add another, I have often needed to change a timesheet entry once I viewed it in one of the reports (maybe I allocated it to the wrong task, or maybe I need to correct some text). For now, we have to leave the report, go to the timesheet, find the date, etc. A link on the report would be a great timesaver, like this addition today.

    Thanks for considering our feedback so often. :-)

  • Thank you thank you thank you thank you! This will same all of us piles of time – with your calendar week starting on Monday instead of Sunday we’re constantly doing this! Hurrah!

    THANK YOU! These changes are so useful and well implemented. Please keep up the good work.

    I’d also like to second the request made above – direct access to changing time entries from reports (or at least get to the day in question) would be very handy.

  • Aaron Wallentine on February 19, 2010

    Yes! Thank You! That is very helpful and saves me copy and pasting entries from window to window to achieve the same thing.

    I also second the request from Charlie.

    and if I could add another — a way to reorder entries on invoices? Another instance where I have to resort to copy and paste, and it is a bit onerous since up to 4 fields have to be copy/pasted.

    Thank you – I will use this feature a lot. I’m always posting on he previous day by mistake.

    I’d like to add my vote to the idea above: either allow data update in reports OR allow a click-through from the report to the edit page. Right now I have to make a note of the item I want to edit then go find it.

    Keep up the great work.

  • Janine Lazur on March 1, 2010

    Nice little tweaks. I’ll second Aaron’s request to reorder invoice entries — I was just wishing for that this morning!

  • Marilyn Nappier on March 4, 2010

    Thanks for adding the feature for changing the date! It will make it much easier to correct entries.

  • Glad you are continuing to implement changes. As a business owner I would like to see date/time stamps on changes made. Right now it’s too easy for an employee to go in and change all their hours if they want for every week and I wouldn’t know what the changes were. A notes field on every time sheet would be a small step in the right direction.

  • Hi, I agree with Angela, as a provider of corporate governance consulting, having a good audit trail of changes to time that becomes a chargeable event it important.

  • Michael Haig on March 25, 2010

    Still can’t work out why you haven’t fixed the bug where the times 0:40, 6:10 and 1:10 add up to 8:01 (when quite clearly they add up to 8:00). I have even presented a good solution to your development team – where it was suggested that times are stored as 1/300th of an hour – thus enabling you to represent accurately 1/100th of an hour and minutes (i.e. 1/60th of an hour). You present me with the challenge to come up with a solution and then proceed to ignore it.

  • Hi Michael, we’re not ignoring you at all, but changing the way we store time is not a simple move especially considering the amount of data we have in Harvest. Thanks for your patience.

  • Nice touch! Can you do something similar for changing the time – leave the clock running in edit mode. If I want to edit the time I can click on that button. Reason: My clients want more information on how the time is being spent so I use comments to store these and new entries when it’s something totally different. Sometimes I leave the entry open and not saved and the clock does not keep running.

    Can you add the same change date feature to expenses items too please?
