After login always on "Day View" - store setting in DB instead of cookie.

Hello,

in our team we prefer the "Timesheet View" to enter our hours. Unfortunatly everytime I log back in, it switches back to the "Day View" Tab. Not a major concern, just curious if it is supposed to always be on the "Day View" when you log in or if it would be possible to have it on the view you last used.

Otherwise: Great tool and thanks for all your effort!

    The hints use cookies too :/
    “user_knows_basics” and “mrticktock_version” cookies are responsible for hints.

    We will try to move all these settings to the DB when possible but there are few others which improve the experience on the site, e.g. it remembers the report settings.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Cheers,
    Jacek

        Hi,

        ok, that's the reason. All cookies are automatically deleted as soon as we close the browser. So we would need to find a way to exclude this specific cookie. That is probably also the reason, why we always get the "hints" over and over again. Maybe for a future change it would be possible to store these user settings in the a database instead of locally on the computer.

        Thanks for the quick reply!

        Hi,

        It definitely should remember the view state. It works fine on my side so there is something tricky happening on your side.

        The state is stored in a cookie named "default_view".

        * Do you by any chance delete cookies or noticed that using different browsers?
        * Can you check if the cookie is there next time when you log in?
        * Is this happening to anyone else around you?

        Thanks,
        Jacek
