Journal Feature Request

  1. 2 years ago

    May I suggest an improvement to the Journals section please?

    When using the Journals section, I need to be able to set a journal against a date, and have it placed in a folder.

    Normally I click the folder first and then write the journal text, but then find its against the wrong date. Its not very intuitive the way it is now.

    Instead, could the date, for which you are entering the journal, be added to the toolbar as a date picker so you can set the date for the Journal (and the folders if possible as well in case you have the wrong folder highlighted).

    This way you can select the folder and start writing the journal text, and before you save it, select the date. Saving then places it in the correct folder, and against the correct date. Any which are found to be incorrect, an edit would again show the folder dropdown and date picker, allowing this to be easily corrected.

    Many thanks,

    John

    Drag the Journal entry to the data navigator and it will set the new date to the entry automatically.

    When creating a new entry, select the folder then select the date from the data navigator first then click on Add New Journal.

    I agree, It needs some work.

    I'll add a date edit field to the right-click Properties of the Journal Entry for manual editing rather than using the drag method.

  3. Thanks Chris. That would work.
