Manual Time Entries

I'm curious as to whether others out there would like the following change to entering Manual Time.  I'm Agile so I'll create the functionality request in the form of a User Story

 

As a Freelancer, When entering manual timeI I would like the :To:" dropdown to populate / update to only include times greater than the time entered in the "From" dropdown so that the error message "time in "to" should be greater than time in from" becomes obsolete and user experience is enhanced.

Maybe I'm the only person who routinely makes this mistake, but it seems like a quick and easy fix utilizing JavaScript or your preferred alternative

Yes that would be helpful.  Also change the 10-minute intervals to 5-minute intervals (my preference)

Very helpful indeed!  5 minutes would more useful for me too.

Hi Eric,

 

Thanks for sharing your feedback. I wanted to follow up and clarify that we did use the process you described but based on the feedback we received here in the Community and from freelancers directly, updated the process to the current time frame selection flow last year. We are listening to and take into consideration feedback received from our users, especially if shared in the Community forums, and would like to thank you for sharing this suggestion.

 

Robin, regarding shortening the 10-minute interval to 5 minutes, this isn't on our roadmap but will share your feedback with our team. Could you expand on the reasons why you'd prefer the shorter interval and how it would be more beneficial for your work process and type of work?

Why anyone would request that change is beyond me. I only bill manual time and actually cannot remember a time when this process was better/different...

It's doesn't make any sense to populate any "to" field with a number smaller than the one entered into a "from" field.

Echoing what Ela said. Why in the world would people request something that is entirely impossible (and pointless if it was possible) to successfully achieve? I have never seen such a suggestion, ever. Can you point out where people have asked to be able to add an end time that is prior to the start time so we can work out what their reasoning was?

 

It also used to be possible to actually TYPE in the time. That too was taken away. Adding manual time has become the most clunky and tedious part of the admin.use of the site.

Agreeing with Petra and Ela, I can't imagine why anyone would actually request this.

I wrote the initial post and like the others am very confused about how it is at all a useful "feature" to be able to select an earlier time for to than you select for from.

 

I have worked in software design and delivery for 20 years.  I have NEVER seen a web page (either customer facing or back office) that doesn't reduce the to list or lowlight the ineligibile responses.
