Could you make the cursor jump to the hours detail bubble automatically when the bubble is turned on

When entering time, if the user opens the time detail bubble, it is evidently because he/she intends to write inside it. Please make the cursor / context jump inside the bubble automatically, instead of forcing the user to 1- click on the bubble [+] sign (to turn on the bubble) and then 2- click inside the bubble to start writing in it. Step 2- should happen automatically.

This sort of feature might be useful for some companies. For our company, however, many employees don't need to submit comments for all of their hours so having the cursor automatically appear in the comment box instead of in the hour box would then require them to click out of the comment box, the opposite action this user is suggesting. Currently, as soon as we click on an hour box to enter hours, the comment box automatically pops up even if we don't need it. If Replicon were to develop an option so people could customize how this action is performed, that would be fine. But currently this is not something that would benefit us.

What we are talking about here is to have the context switched to the comment bubble *once the comment bubble [+] sign has been clicked* and not when just tabbing through the hours cells or entering numbers in them.

Perhaps our interfaces are set up differently. As soon as we click in a box to enter hours, the Comments box appears. As mentioned above, many of our employees don't need to enter comments for every hours box. Also many of our employees work on multiple projects in a day/week. If the cursor automatically appeared in the comment box first instead of the hours box, they would have to click out of it every single time they wanted to put in just their hours. I was only sharing our perspective on this issue and suggesting if Replicon does anything about it they should consider giving people an option to customize the timesheet interface based on the needs of each company. Perhaps by allowing a company to make the comments box mandatory instead of optional, for example.

Hi Jean and Kelly,

I would like to make some improvements to the tab operation on the timesheet. It's not in the immediate works but I'll mark this as Under Consideration for future.

Of course as Kelly mentioned, we'll need to keep in mind people who don't use comments so we don't interrupt their workflow.

Thanks,
Charlene
