Adjust Transaction Dates and Times

What does Adjust Transaction Dates and Times do?

Letís say that you forget to update the time on your TimePilot Vetro clock in standalone mode (you use your USB drive to collect data) to account for the November change from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time. Five days later, after downloading the hundreds of clock-ins and clock-outs that have been recorded by your Vetro, you realize that theyíre all an hour later than they should be.

You could double-click each of those hundreds of transactions and make the change individually, but thatís going to take quite a while. Why not do it all at once? All you have to do is "Adjust Transaction Dates and Times." (TimePilot Central > Edit Menu > Adjust Transaction Dates and Times)

Hereís how:

  1. Click the first transaction you want to change, then scroll down, hold down the Shift key on your keyboard and click the last transaction you want to change. This will highlight all the transactions that appear between the two transactions you clicked.
  2. Move your cursor anywhere within the highlighted area, then click your right mouse button. The only choice available to you will be "Adjust Transaction Dates and Times." Click it.
  3. For this example, we want to subtract 60 minutes from each of the highlighted transactions, so enter -60 in the Minutes field and click OK. The software will "back up" all the highlighted transactions by an hour.
