When I put them all in a sequence, is this the correct way to write?

The hyphen can indeed be used to prereference a second element of a word which is only explicitly written once at the end of said list. However, the list requires commas between all entries that are not followed by und, and a hyphen at the end of every word where a bit is missing. So the correct way would be:
Listen-, Gruppen-, Inventar- und Verlaufseinträge.
You can also use this at the beginning of an entry reversely:
Eintragsprobleme, -möglichkeiten, -varianten und -chancen.
And you can combine the two:
Gruppenein- und -austragungen.
