TimeSage time sheets and usage details

time sheets time tracking
  • You can have an unlimited amount of time sheets in a project.
  • You can access the most important time sheet functions from the systray menu.
  • The "start" and "stop" clock functions have some special behavior worth mentioning:
    • If you start the clock "day-1" and stop it "day-N" (e.g. start/stop before/after midnight) there will automatically be filled data for all relevant days.
    • If you edit date-time fields yourself and then e.g. omit (intentionally or not) either a "start" or "stop" field their respective functions will still work and behave relatively smartly. Here are some examples:
      • If you have multiple correctly filled rows except a row in the middle (we will call this "row-x") then:
        • If only "start" field is set in "row-x":
          • If "row-x" is selected, "stop" function will affect "row-x".
        • If neither "start" nor "stop" fields are set in "row-x":
          • If "row-x" is selected, "start" and "stop" functions will affect "row-x".
        • If above does not apply, or you have another row selected, "start" and "stop" functions behave as usual except that they ignore "row-x".
  • Use the "Calculate Data" to to check for errors and omissions (e.g. if you have edited fields manually) and perform sequential sorting of all rows (based on the "start" field value for each row) in selected time sheet. You wil also be warned of time collisions and overlaps (e.g. if "record-1-time-slot" ends 16.00 and "record-2-time-slot" starts 15.00). Depending on the project options selected a few other services are also performed.
    • An empty "end-time" value will silently be accepted for the last row. Instead a "now" value will be assumed in relevant calculations.
  • You can use the keyboard to navigate and edit time sheet fields very easily. Here are some examples:
    • If the active control is not the time sheet, the selected (or default) field is "pseudo-selected". Depending on Windows theme, this field will usually have a grey or light-blue background color.
    • Before you can perform any action in a field, you need to "activate" (e.g. "tab into") the time sheet. The selected field will then change background color and have an enlarged "dotted" border. In this "view" state you can move around the fields with the arrow keys.
    • When the time sheet is active, and a field is in "view" state, you can switch between "view" and "edit" mode by pressing either "Enter" (when switching into "edit" mode this "selects" the text in the active field) or "F2". You can also just start typing something, but this will also erase all text in the active field.
