Description

Check box is not selected

If the check box is selected, users cannot log work on JIRA issues that have sub-tasks.

Users can specify a start time when they log workCheck box is not selected

If the check box is selected, a Time field is added to the form that users fill out every time that they log work. Users can specify a start time for their logged work in this field.

If the check box is cleared and users want to specify a start time for logged work, they must log work on the time view of the worklog calendar.

See also 'Time difference between JIRA worklogs and Tempo worklogs.'

Remaining estimate is optionalCheck box is not selected

If the check box is selected and an issue has no Original estimate, the Remaining estimate is not calculated in the time-tracking entry. Again if the check box is selected and an issue has Original estimate, the Remaining estimate is reduced by the time spent until the value 0 is reached. The Remaining estimate cannot be a negative number, but if it has reached 0, the user can add a new one.

Worklog description is optionalCheck box is not selected

If the check box is selected and no text is written in the Log Work Description field, a default text Working on Issue $key is added. As with any text in the Log Work Description, the default text can still be edited.

Users can log work for closed and archived accounts

Check box is selected

If the check box is cleared, it is not possible to log work on an issue that has an account in closed status.

Users can log work on non-editable issues

Check box is selected

If the check box is cleared and the jira.issue.editable property is set to false in the JIRA workflow status, a Tempo Timesheets user cannot log work.

(info) A few notes:

  • This property is false by default in the JIRA workflow for issues in Closed status.
  • If the check box is selected, the workflow status must have a transition to Reopened status as in the JIRA default workflow. The user must also have a permission to execute the reopen transition.
  • The workflow transitions can be hidden, by using the Hide Transition option in the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin, if you don´t want users to reopen issues.
  • There is also an option to use the jira.permission.work.denied property as documented on this page
