Only JIRA Administrators, JIRA System Administrators can configure Timetracker.
On these pages, you can configure the behavior of the Timetracker.
To open the Timetracker Global Settings:
Choose > Apps.
Locate TIMETRACKER section and select the Global Settings field.
If enabled, users can plan their time and it is not necessary to fill in all the fields. All worklogs remain planned until the user enters all the information required to create a Jira worklog. When this happens, the worklog is automatically saved to the Jira under the selected Issue as a worklog. If disabled, users can only create Jira worklogs and cannot omit any of the fields as they can in planning mode.
Mandatory Work Description
Adminstrators can choose whether worklog description is mandatory or not for Timetracker users. By default, description is optional.
Administrators can choose whether tags are mandatory to create worklogs for users on the Global Settings page. By default, tags are optional.
Maximum hours per day per user
Here you can define the maximum loggable hours per day for Timetracker users. Empty field means there is no limit.
Eg.: 6, 8 or 6.5
Logging time to the past
Users can log time up to this number of days (0-365) into the past compared to the given day. Empty means it is unlimited. To allow a user to log work only for the given day, enter zero.
Logging time to the future
Users can log time up to this number of days (0-365) into the future compared to the given day. Empty means it is unlimited. To allow a user to log work only for the given day, enter zero.
In the Permission Settings you can add groups for which this will be not valid and they will still be able to create/edit worklog in the configured period.
This feature is designed to manage non-working, non-billable projects and/or issues. This feature can be useful if you have a dedicated project or issues for non-work activities, eg. for lunch.
The time logged for these Issues will be indicated by a striped line in the progress bars of the Timetracker screen.
You can manage special dates here, like public national holidays, or weekends, which are working days. These dates will affect the calculation of expected working hours, calendar coloring, and some time tracking functionalities. By default, all weekdays are working days while all weekends are non-working days.
