Configuring Logging Time Options

Configuring logging time options requires the Tempo Administrator permission.

The Logging Time options determine the behavior for how users log their time - for example, whether it should be possible to log time without adding a Description, or being able to log time to an issue that has a Tempo account that is closed. You can configure these options for all users on your Tempo instance.

To configure the log time options:

  1. Select Settings :Settings_icon:  in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. Under Configuration, select Logging Time.

  3. Select the options that are displayed or affect the behavior when users log their time:

    • Remaining estimate is optional - by default, users are not required to enter an estimate of remaining time in a worklog. Clear the checkbox if users must add a time remaining estimate to log their time. This is a Jira field and can't be restricted to or from specific users.

    • Worklog description is optional - by default, users are not required to enter a description for each worklog). Clear the checkbox must enter a description to log their time.

    • Users can log time for closed and archived accounts - users can log time, edit, and delete existing worklogs for Tempo accounts with the status of Closed or Archived. You can always log time for Tempo accounts that are open.

    • Users can log time up to this number of days into the future0 Days means that users cannot log time for tomorrow. 360 Days means that users cannot log time on a date that is more than a year from current date. 

    • Maximum hours per day per user - Unlimited provides an unlimited value for maximum hours. If you select a limited value from the list, the lowest value is set as the Hours per day in Jira Time Tracking settings, and the highest value ends in 24 Hours.
