7pace Timetracker's "Add Time" dialog features a smart search, keyboard support, and can be configured in three modes: Timeframe, Duration or a combination of both
7pace Timetracker's "Add Time" Dialog
The "Add Time" dialog box displays any time you click "Add Time" or edit your time on the Monthly, Timesheet or Times Explorer pages of 7pace Timetracker. You can also add time directly from the workitem form.
The "Add Time" dialog features a modern design in keeping with DevOps Server/Services' UI, with easy keyboard support, the ability to quickly select specific worklog duration (0.5h, 1h, 2h, 4h) and mark the tracked time as billable
The user name displayed at the top of the "Add Time" dialog defaults to the signed-in user on the Monthly and Timesheet pages. On the Times Explorer page, depending on what role has been configured by an admin under Settings to add/edit time, a user may be able to click in this field and select a user other than himself/herself to add/edit a time entry.
Begin typing in a work item name or number and the search results display. The "Search work items" text field features improved search functionality and if you hover over the work item number, displays the work item hierarchy and project name inside a tooltip.
If a 7pace Timetracker administrator has enabled “Prevent Time Entry Against Closed Items” on the “Settings”, in the “Rules” section, you’ll a "This work item is closed" message if you try to add time to a closed work item.
From 7pace Timetracker’s 5.42.0 release on, additional search filters are available to allow you to easily filter (or filter out) items based on their attributes.
From 7pace Timetracker 5.44.0 version, it is possible for an administrator to set global/default filters for the whole organization.
Type the '/' symbol in the work item search field to see available filter options display.
Once you select a filter, choose a value. (You can type manually or just click on the item in the list)
You can see the counter of the applied filters when at least one filter is applied.
Clicking on the counter shows a list of the applied filters with the remove (“X”) icon:
Clicking on the X icon allows you to remove that filter from the search.
Note that the filters are applied when searching by keywords. Filters are ignored when searching by id (i.e. a number).
After selecting an open work item, beneath that, clicking on the calendar date field opens a popup calendar, with the date defaulting to today's date. Depending on what your admin has configured in Settings, you may or may not be able to select time beyond the present date.
Also, depending on what your admin has configured in Settings, you may or may not be able to switch between Timeframe and Duration mode.
With Timetrame enabled:
The logic for the "From", "To" and "Duration" fields computation has been improved. When the user changes one field, the corresponding field changes in kind, more intuitively, to reflect the text input in the first field.
With Duration mode enabled:
With Allow Both Modes enabled (includes a toggle button, where you can toggle back and forth between either duration or timeframe):
You can select a corresponding Activity Type and then add a multi-line comment under that. Depending on what your admin has configured in Settings -> Rules, work item, Activity Type and Comment may or may not be required fields.
If a required field is left blank by a user, the user-friendly validation of the input fields will show all the corrections the user must make simultaneously.
Once the required input fields have been updated correctly by the user, clicking "Save" saves the time entry.
