    Hello David,

    Yes, you can already do this! :) Just do the following:

    1. Pause the timer.
    2. Click on the entry to open up the pop-up window.
    3. Change the hour amount.
    4. Click the Save Changes button. The pop-up window will disappear and the new time will display.
    5. Play the timer.

    Thank you Jessica!  This is great news.  Forgive me but i need some more help understanding what to do.  Step 2 says "Click on the entry to open up the pop-up window."  i am looking at the New Billable Entry window (see attachment) and i don't know where to click.  Please send me a screen shot of the window i should be clicking on.  I am very excited that there is a way to do this.  Thank you!

    Oh, i think i found what you were describing. 

    1. I clicked Save & Close on the New Billable Entry screen.  That made the entry appear on the Dashboard and on the Projects tab. 
    2. Then i can either click on the notepad icon next to the entry on the Dashboard or click on the line entry itself in Projects.  Either action opens the Edit Billable Entry window.
    3. In Edit Billable Entry I changed the amount in the Labor Time box and clicked Save & Close.
    4. Finally, i re-opened the entry (Step 2) and when i restarted the timer it began counting from the corrected time. 

    This is wonderful.  it requires some extra steps, but at least it can be accomplished.

    Thank you Jessica!

    Hello again David!

    I was referencing the timer at the top right of your screen. Next to your name, there is a little clock icon. This is where I was assuming you were tracking your time with the timer. Here's a little vid on how to use the timer:  http://www.youtube.com/Bill4TimeTraining#p/u/7/cA2Cg2hhPGE

    So step two was clicking on the timer entry. In the attached picture, you will see two entries that were paused and ready to be started again. So say for example wanted to change the time for Frank to 0.5 hours instead of 1 hour. I'd click on that entry for Frank, and then a pop-up window comes up.

    Have you used the timer before, or just the time from the "New Billable Entry" window? The Multi-timer may be a good fit for you. :)

    Hi, Jessica!  Thank you for being so responsive!  I posted two Feature Requests last night, and you responded to the first one early in the morning and then followed up twice to make sure I found the feature (which already existed) and that I knew how to use it.  Less than 48 hours from creating a trial account I am liking Bill4Time a lot and will probably be converting to a regular account soon.  The Multi-Timer is great!  Looking forward to the response on my other post.  Thanks again!

    You're most welcome, David! My pleasure. :)

    What I did with your other post (prevent multi-timers and have one automatically shut down when another one starts) was personally send it to the development team for consideration. 

    Great to hear that the software is helping you with your business! And great to know you like the multi-timer, too. I'll make sure the developers hear about that too. :) We're here to help!
