Note that the Start
fields are editable. Administrator can make the fields non-editable and therefore forcing users to use the Now
buttons on the right to populate the controls with the help of the READONLY_START_FINISH value in config.php.
// READONLY_START_FINISH - defines whether the start and finish fields on time entry pages are read-only.
// This applies to regular users only. Manager and co-managers can edit these values.
// define('READONLY_START_FINISH', false);
"Duration" Record Type
record type is used, users must only specify the duration for their time entries. Instead of Start
fields, only Duration
field is available. This simplifies user interface and time entry process.
