Unable to introduce time on a new UI Timesheet

Issue:
Some users are trying to enter time in their Timesheets in the new UI.
Their Timesheets just display a Total field that is greyed out and not editable.
Cause:
This can happen if the user has configured his Timesheet so that it does not display the Daily Actuals field.
On the old UI it was possible to enter time for the whole period, whereas on the new UI the time needs to be entered on a daily basis.
The Total field in the new UI is not editable (it is a calculated field displaying the sum of the hours entered each day).
Resolution:
The users facing this need to re-configure their Timesheet options on the old UI to include the Daily Actuals on the new UI.

Those are the instructions to configure the Timesheet options. 
On the old UI, the user need to click one of his Timesheets, for instance on the My Timeseehts portlet.
When the Timesheet pops up, click on Configure.
On the Configure Timesheet, move the Daily Actuals from the Available Columns to the Selected Columns

This will trigger the change so that the Actuals can be entered on a day by day basis on the Timesheet.
Additional Information:
The Total field can be displayed on the new UI, but it is a calculated field (sum of the daily actuals being entered) 
It is not editable and you can not enter the complete amount of hours for all days at once.
