The intelligent quick entry saves a lot of time. You can use it on projects, tasks and timestamps.

Why intelligent?

Xpert-Timer interprets you entries and tries to understand what you are doing. Here are some examples:

tog_minus        Intelligent quick entry for projects

schnellerfassung_projekte

Enter the name of the project you want to enter. Check the box for creating a main project, otherwise, Xpert-Timer will use the marked project in the project list as your main project and create a subproject for it. The small preview window will tell you exaclty, where Xpert-Timer will create the new project.

schnellerfassung_neues_projekt

In order to create a new main project you must check the box "New main project".

Remote connection Mr. Meyer

If you only enter a comment in the quick entry line, then the currect chosen project in the project list will be started when hitting the enter button. This way you can directly enter a comment to your timestamp.

In your task list the quick entry links your new tasks to the project you've marked in your project list.
