I re-implemented the week view as a configurable plugin with separate settings for week note, week list, and editable note fields.

Unfortunately, this introduces an additional level of complexity, so bugs are very likely.

Hope this gets us a reasonable compromise to move on with.

Fantastic! I really like the configurable plugin! I also really appreciate the explanation links in the configuration screen. :D :D

Have you thought about showing the Notes popup when hovering over the time box? The hover change (from Notes box to Time box) would only be needed when (daily) Notes is NOT selected in the popup configuration. When reviewing the work entered for a week, the popup would avoid having to scroll down to the Week List to see what work was done for a particular time entry. IMHO this is the only missing feature now in Week View.

Cheers, and thank you very much for your effort,
Dale

I found when (daily) Notes is enabled and new time entered in Week View, the content of the Week Note is not used (presumably because the Week Notes content is used). In this case, showing the Week Notes box will be confusing for users because they will not know from the UI where notes should be entered.

Also, Week Note content _is_ used when (daily) Notes is disabled, which may be confusing due to the interaction of configuration settings.

What if "Week note" and "Notes" were mutually exclusive with a single "Week note" enable/disable configuration. If (daily) Notes is enabled, Week Note is hidden, and if (daily) Notes is disabled, then Week Note is shown. What do you think?

Cheers,
Dale
