First: Start and End Time are optional
If your program director isn't requiring you to enter a start time on all your time records, than neither are we. In Month and Track view, you can just enter an amount of time in the duration field.
This is easiest in the Track View. Once you fill in the pre-selects (Track, Program, Site and Supervisor), all you need to do is enter time in the duration field -- which is right there on the main screen.
Second: 1254p = 12:54 PM
If Start and End Time are required for you, entering this data is actually pretty easy. Did your session start at 12:54 P.M.? Just type in 1254p in the start field and then click enter or tab. The system will interpret this correctly as 12:54 P.M.
Third: Decimals work
(.25 is a quarter-hour; .5 is a half; .75 is three-quarters)
That's right! In the Track View, you can also enter decimals in the duration field and the system will translate it into hours and minutes. This only works in the Track View for now, but we will be expanding it to other views soon.
If you're really into decimals, here's a conversion chart -- just for you!
Fourth: Total minutes works, too
So 65 = 1 hour and 5 minutes
In any view, if you enter the total minutes in the duration field, the system will translate this into hours and minutes for you.
Fifth: Need the exact time?
If you want to record the current time, just click the small clock icon to the right of Start and End Time. The system will automatically enter the current time for you.
Sixth: Don't forget the Pre-selects!
I know, I know. I said FIVE tips. But here's another one for free -- just because you scrolled all the way down here to see it. In each view, you will see a series of pre-selects at the top of the screen: Track, Program, Site and Field Instructor/Supervisor. DO NOT IGNORE THESE! Whatever choices you make here, these are the same choices Tevera will use for any record you add. Fill these out once, then add a bunch of time, and you'll save countless clicks getting your time entered.
