  1. I like the new report lyaout as it simplifies the functionality. Very good!BUT: I really need to be able to sort the time entries by project in the Detailed report. I suggest that you change the text in the current column Description to Description / Project (as this column shows both) and makes the text Project to a link, that will sort the entries by project. Very easy And another issue. If you in the Summary report filter the entries by on or more users, and then click on an entry then the selection of users is not transfered to the view in the Detailed report. As a consequence I get more time entries (from other users also) than I would expect from the entries in the Summary report. So you just need to transfer the filtering of users when you do a link from the Summary Report to the Detailed report. Also very easy
