Undo last operation

Postby latourette » Thu Jan 19, 2012 3:38 pm

Please add a feature to allow the user to undo the last operation they did. Actually, multiple levels of undo would be even better.

A common use case is:
I'm working on a project and Klok is recording the time spent. Someone walks into my office and interrupts me or the phone rings, etc. It doesn't occur to me at the time of the interruption to change my "Working on" task in Klok. After the interruption ends, I want to edit the time entry for the task I was working on to reflect the fact that I really stopped working on it 15 minutes ago when a colleague came into my office for a chat. I'm also going to want to add a task to record that I spent the last 15 minutes in a meeting with my colleague. Often, in the process of editing the first task's end time and adding a new task, I'll make some sort of error and inadvertently click and drag a task when what I meant to do was select it so I could edit the start/end times, or I accidentally add an extraneous task that I didn't mean to add, etc. It would be very nice when that sort of thing happens to just be able to hit Ctrl+Z to take a step backward.

I would love this as well. I frequently make mistakes and I sometimes can't undo!

I very much agree!

The worst is when I accidentally drag the beginning or end of a task and then I forget when it actually started or ended so I have to guess.

How about that undo? Name an app like this that doesn't have it? This is a great package, but before I can try to buy & implement company wide, it needs and undo. Thanks heaps!

Ah! If just posted a request that's sort of what you are suggesting! Good idea - I am always getting in this position, especially if I try to save small amounts of time when responding to emails from various clients (for example). All these minutes add up during the day and often get lost. My suggestion is to have the notes box pop-up when starting a job so you can at least make some sort of note before you start to reind you later what you did.

After using Klok now for approximately 4 months I totally agree. It's less about mistaken deletes for me (although that would be appreciated too) and more about time entries that I have accidentally dragged or resized and like other users I can't remember exactly where it was. Would definitely appreciate a multi-level undo/redo with <Ctrl>+<Z> and <Ctrl>+<Y> shortcuts.

Agreed! Really frustrating when you accidentally move/resize a time entry and then you have no idea where the original position of it was.
