I use Org Mode to log data while monitoring events.  I used YASnippets to insert time but Org mode flushes every thing left.   What I get looks like

09:12  All Systems started OK
09:15  Remote system xyzzy reports problems with the framistat cluster.
It was restarted with the same configuration
09:16 xyzzy failed again, changing configuration.
09:17 successful restart


What I want looks like

09:12  All Systems started OK
09:15  Remote system xyzzy reports problems with the framistat cluster.
           It was restarted with the same configuration
09:16 xyzzy failed again, changing configuration.
09:17 successful restart

Tab doesn’t work to move the text over.   How can I make to continue lines, that is not starting with a timestamp, indent?

There are many bullets that describe the equipment and set up and are not part of the time based log.  I guess I only want the time records to format this way.

Thanks for any suggestions.

If tab doesn't work because tab is bound to a command, you can often insert
a literal tab with C-q Tab
