Shortcuts for entering dates -

  • "t" for today
  • "y" for yesterday
  • "t-x" for a number of days ago.  eg. "t-3" is 3 days ago.

Shortcuts for entering times -

  • you can just enter numbers like, "9" for "9:00 AM", or "230" for "2:30 PM"
  • Ivo is very good at knowing whether to use AM or PM, however if you need to force it to be one or the other, you can enter "a" for AM or "p" for PM.  For example, "9p" would give "9:00 PM"
  • 24 hour times are also accepted.  "1630" would give "4:30 PM"
  • "n" for now (ie. the exact current time)
