I really hate the time tracking dropdowns when logging hours. I wish it would be simpler. Here's a suggestion:
When you enter your start time (say 3pm), the end time dropdown should only have hours from 3pm downards.
This saves me having to scroll alllllll the way down (because it starts at 12am) to find the time beyond 3pm.
Hope this makes sense, and hopefully this can be done?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I were you, I would not use manual hour much.
You know they're not protected for payment, right?
Also, you would save yourself looking for the hours in the drop-down menu
hahaha YES finally a complaint I agree with. It really is a pain.
Mine flips back to UTC time too and you can't flip it back when you realize it after you've already opened the window, so I just say "fook it, just leaving the wrong time there who cares" and move on with my day.

Yeah me too, I end up just putting in random times ... I bet this change could be done.. Upwork team, please listen and add this to your feature list thank you
That's what I do too. So far, nobody has complained. Only time it's a pain though is if I put in a random time and then I use the time tracker and there is conflict. blah.
Hi Jack and Jennifer,
Thanks for your suggestion. I checked and it seems that the option you are referring to actually exists on the Desktop App. After selecting the start time, the end time will only show time frames after the start time as shown in the screenshot here. However, the same option on the website is slightly different as it will only select the next time frame, but the time frames before will still exist in the dropdown. As background, on the Work Diary on your account, the time frames originally worked in the same way you suggested and the process was updated to the current flow based on the request and feedback we were receiving from Freelancers. I will make sure to send the feedback to our team for consideration.

Hi Jack and Jennifer,
I use my browser to enter time. I'm kinda surprised freelancers would actually ask to see and scroll all the way down on the End Time dropdown, because there is no reason to enter a time previous to the start time. As a matter of fact, if you try it gives you an error. So yeah, I have some doubts about that.
Also, my complaint is also if you open the screen to enter time and realize you're in UTC later, you have to close the screen, change it, and then go back and redo the time.
