I've been working in a project on daily basis. Still the (this) project is not showing in Recent project, just three other projects. Two of them is correct.

Or to explain more, yesterday i worked on two project and one of them is, today, in the recent list, one is from day before yesterday and one is from several days ago. 

How comes that I can't see the missing project?

We couldn't reproduce the problem. Please note, that any time you edit any time entry or start a timer, the related project is popped to the top of the "recent projects" list.

Okey, well, today my "missing" is in "recent".. but not a another project I'm working on today..

Edit: Hm.. Today's missing entry in recent was not a Project, just a task. When create a Project and then edit my entrys to that project, the project also is in Recent.

I can now for sure confirm this issue.

"Recent Project" does not showing recent.

Hi Mikael.
Your recent projects should be displayed here
If it's still not the case, we will need more info from you.
Ideally, we would need several screenshots taken within, let's say,  a couple of hours.
For instance,
screenshot #1 showing the current active time entry\task\ linked to a project, some time later
screenshot #2 showing the another current active time entry\task\ linked to another project, some time later
screenshot #3 showing recent projects list, similar to my screenshot here

Please let me know what you think.

Mikael, thank you so much.
We have double checked this on our end. The only use case when projects other than current or recent are displayed in Recent Projects, is when time entries related to these other projects were edited. Then, the projects with the recently edited time entries are populating the top of Recent Projects list.

Have you been editing any time entries related to the projects that are now on top of your Recent Projects list?

Also, if you could kindly send over one more screenshot - we would like to see if the same projects are displayed once you click the + button

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Mikael, I'm here with an update.
It appears that the reason why your recent projects are not displayed at the top is that the time entries associated with them have no description.
Could you add some description to any time entry for your recent proects and check again if this project appears at the top of Recent Projects list?

Yes, editing (add) description gives the project a place in recent.

But why? It says "Recent projects", not "Recent projects with any description".

Mostly I do not need to use desc. if I got proper Project and using Tags.

I'm using desc. mostly when I don't have a suitable project to use.

But now I know, anyway!

Mikael, to be honest, we did not forsee such a usecase.
We have created an issue internally about this behavior. Our dev team will review it and decide whether any changes should be introduced.
