    I agree. This would be a wonderful feature to have. 

    Is it also possible to have the option to make a global default or by user?

    Meaning, we can say the global default would be "Client". However, if we have an employee that generally doesn't work on client work (say Finance or HR), we could set their default to something else?

    Thank you for your help and consideration.

    +1 for a main default category. When reporting on time spent and using categories for billing, capitalization and the like, having entries with no category is worse than having the wrong one.

    I'm also for having individual user defaults, which would clear up much of the wrong category entries, but that is more of a nice to have than flat-out required like the former.

    Thanks.

    To add to this line of thought.  In addition to a default option, when creating blueprints, the ability to set the timelog category for those items would be great.

    Quick update: I've added the 'Backburner' status here, which means that the Product team is interested, but the idea isn't on the roadmap yet. I'll let you know when there's an update 🙌

    As well as being time saving feature, the real advantage would be a reduction in un-categorized or mis-categorized timelog entries.

    I'd love to see this feature implemented.
