The should be an option when employing a contractor on oDesk to prevent then entering manual hours.
I have had several situations where contractors have entered manual hours for the work they have done. However, there is no way to verify the actual work completed. There is no way to prevent them from entering manual hours, and forcing them to use the Work Diary.
While it is possible to dispute the manual hours, it is not desirable to do this for many reasons. One is because it becomes difficult to determine how much effort went into a task without seeing the work diary, and another is that it is never desirable to dispute a job - it should always be the last resort. Because there is no way to prevent contractors entering manual work hours, it is setting up a situation that may result in a dispute.
