Understanding Time Logs

Entering arbitrary amounts of time

When adding time logs, editing time logs, or estimating tasks, Planscope supports a wide range of time formats:

  • 1h - 1 hour
  • 1h 15m - 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • 1.5h - 1 hour, 30 minutes
  • .5 (or 0.5) - 30 minutes
  • 2:45 - 2 hours, 45 minutes

Note: If you provide JUST a number that's less than 15, we'll assume you're entering hours. If it's 15 or greater, we'll assume minutes. You can override this assumption by supplying a unit (e.g., 20h)

  • 5 - 5 hours
  • 20 - 20 minutes

Editing time logs

It's super easy to edit a time log. If you haven't left a timer running overnight yet — you will, trust me. Here's how to fix runaway time logs.  Editing_timelogs

In the activity stream of the time log's task, click the "Edit" link for the time log you'd want to enter (in the above example, the second entry for "10h".) This change the entry to the edit mode so you can edit the total time for that time log.  Editing_timelogs_edit

Deleting time logs

Deleting a time log is super easy. Just click the "Delete" link for the time log you'd like to purge. We'll take care of updating your budget usage and such when you delete a time log.
