Timesheet: Usability Design Improvements

Post by mbernardo » Mon Nov 19, 2012 11:09 pm

1. Attendance > Timesheet: Clicking on a cell automatically opens the Punch In/Out Pop-Up instead of having to click on "New".

2. Punch In/Out Pop-Up: Hitting the Enter key "saves" the entry instead of having to click on "Save".

These were important features found in the previous version that are now gone. Saves me time and my wrists.

This wouldn't work as it conflicts other features, like editing, mass selection, etc...

CTRL+ALT+S is the shortcut key for the Save icon. Each icon label has a underlined character that when pressed with CTRL+ALT will execute that icon's action.

CTRL+ALT+N can be used instead of clicking the "New" icon as well.

Thanks, that works. I also just realized that with the new interface, I can Mass Edit by holding down the Shift Key and clicking on one or more cells. This is extremely useful.

Yup, along with drag & drop copying too, you should really watch this introduction video to the new interface:
