InLoox PM 7 Web App enables you to reverse entries or to restore cancelled entries. Click therefore in the planning on the Edit tab Undo to reverse the latest entry or click Redo to restore a reversed entry .

Individual working time calendars

In the InLoox PM options, you can now create individual working time calendars to integrate for example part-time, shift or weekend work.
