Example: In administration, if we have 4 activities (A, B, C, D) and A by default,
If activity C is the only one we can set in a project, so when submitting time entry we have to choose C as activity although it is the only choice in the combobox.

The field is compulsory so it is disturbing to set C as activity wherever we input time.

Make the only enabled activity in a project the default one for time entry (#10314).

I agree. Maybe the best solution would be to allow setting a default activity per project?

Here's a simple patch which removes blank field if only one activity is present:

diff --git a/app/helpers/timelog_helper.rb b/app/helpers/timelog_helper.rb

Thank you for posting the patch. I slightly updated it.

  • Changed the method name of TimeEntryActivity.chooseable_activities to available_activities
  • Fixed a RuboCop offense Layout/LineLength
  • Changed the argument of method call at line 29 in app/helpers/timelog_helper.rb from @project to project (I think this is a typo. Please review this change)
