How can we improve TSheets?

Restore Deleted Timesheets/Timsheet Recycle Bin

Currently TSheets does not have graceful support for recovering a timesheet that was deleted due to user error.

TSheets should have an employee timesheet recycle bin so users can easily access and recover deleted timesheets. Admin users should be able to see the contents of all employee recycle bins.

Even better would be a two-stage recycle bin system. An employee recycle bin and then an account recycle bin that holds all items deleted from employee recycle bins for 30 days or whatever.

We're under trial, and the lack of an efficient and reliable recovery mechanism is a barrier to adoption because user errors will happen. We have five test users using TSheets exclusively this week for our test, and one of the users or an admin accidentally deleted a timesheet from Monday a week ago. We know the time is missing, but what client? How much time? Who do we bill?

The recovery procedure (having an admin parse through the edit history one by one) is quite cumbersome and unreliable in that when we finally found the edit record of the deletion, it didn't show which job the timesheet had been for.

At this point, I feel like I'd need to tell all of our employees to keep a separate record of time either in Excel or Outlook as they do now so they could recover something if it's accidentally deleted from TSheets. And of course, double booking defeats the whole purpose.

This is basic functionality that should be added.
