HourGuard Bug


Recommended Posts



First of all, I would like to thank you guys for this software. It's extremely useful for me.


I found few bugs and would like to also give suggestions for HourGuard. I've used the 'Contact' page but have not received any reply. So here goes.


- When you resize the column, it doesn't remember the size. Even when you just minimize the window and restore it, the column will default back.

- Ability to reorder the column would be great.

- I cannot seem to edit the notes for currently active task. I find this is/can be very useful because when you double-click on a base task (in other words make a task active), you would want to record what that task is all about before you forget it. (One suggestion on top of this that I can give is to have the 'Notes' field a textbox in the main screen, so it's directly editable (make it faster and more convenient than double click on that item and edit)).

- Time Sheet Entry dialog box should allow user to create an active task. At the moment, a task there must have an End time, which means it is a completed task. It will be great if it can have no end time (meaning it's currently active).

- A graphical representation of the recorded time sheet (alternative view in the report) would be great. Eg.


|--- eat ---|--- talk with A ---|--- do something ---| etc.


One suggestion for report is to have the dates selector on the top (prev & next day / prev & next month), so we can navigate the dates without having to close the window and recreate the report.


I hope you don't take this as complaint. I just thought that HourGuard can be a killer software with these suggestions.

And, I've got another problem I'd like to mention. Unless I did something very wrong, which doesn't seem to be the case, there's no "Help" in the release I'm using.


I admit to being a bit on the green side but I've not figured out the relationships between "Accounts", "Tasks" (Base & Sub), time recorded and the work that I'm doing.


I'm sure that I'm missing one tiny little obvious thing that will make me go "Ah HA!" but I'll be darned if I can see it like this.


Thanks for letting us try out your software!

Thanks for the comments IrishMike and Conan, the current version 1.30 was released on the 24th of April and a couple of your issues are solved with that version.


- You can right click on the active task in the "Tasks" column/window and edit the notes.

- There is also a help shortcut on this version

- You are able to re-order the columns be clicking on the headings


I've made a note of the other suggestions (especially the column width problem) and hopefully we can put some of them in the next release.
