Pre-populating Week View
To speed up data entry, Week view has a capability to pre-populate its table in a new week with ready-to-fill-in rows, copied from the first found non-empty previous week, up to 5 weeks back in the past. This is a data entry acceleration feature to help users quickly populate their regular entry list for a new week, even after a long vacation.
For example, if someone was working on Time Tracker
projects before vacation, these rows will be ready for immediate fill-in and submit after they come back, as the picture below illustrates.
