Say you're about to send out a report to a client outlining all the incredible work you and your team have done for them, but you notice one entry that's missing some info. Potentially, you've been using one tag for a certain type of task but your team has made a change and now you need to update all past entries to make your hours consistent with the rest of your team's...

It sounds daunting, but instead of having to comb back through the days and weeks to find that needle in the haystack γƒΌ or identify bulk changes γƒΌ Timely makes it super easy to edit entries directly from your reports! No hopping across pages to hunt down stray hours or painstakingly updating hundreds of entries; you can make those changes right there in the report in a matter of clicks. 🎯

Beyond filtering and formatting your data to visualize the hours you've logged in Timely, our reports also let you quickly make tweaks and changes along the way. Here are some common examples of what you can either change individually or in bulk from within a custom report:

Individual edits

Be it a description that doesn't quite fit or a tag you forgot to add, these quick changes are a snap from within reports. Just find the entry you need to update and click on the description to pull up the "Edit entry" window. From there, you can make any changes you need. πŸ‘

You can update any field you would normally adjust when creating an entry; your changes will only be made to the specific entry you have selected.

Note: Keep in mind that if you delete an entry from a report, that entry will be removed from Timely as well.

As an Admin or Manager user, you can also edit hours for other members of your team.

Note: If you're not seeing info, such as the entry date or tags that may have already been applied, hover over the top-right corner of the chart to reveal "Options", and click to reveal a list of columns or details you can add to that chart.

Bulk edits

You can also make bulk changes within reports, which is especially useful for updating groups of entries with incorrect or missing tags or for entries that were logged to the wrong projects. This really comes in handy if you've changed a process and need to update a ton of entries!
