Handling "Time spent" with your team in Jira

Hi all !


How do you handle the process of reporting time on tickets?

The burndown diagram is only affected when someone is reporting time on a ticket.

Do you set this field to mandatory in your views, so that you always have the correct picture of your sprint?


Looking forward to see how the community is handling this process :)


Happy holidays!

Hey Jason,

We've deployed Tempo to manage timekeeping in our issues. Additionally, I have also required that when an item is transitioning between statuses, time spent is required. This serves to remind people to log their time correctly.

thanks for that!

I will definitly check out if Tempo can help us in project controling and budgeting.

I haven't heard of it before.


Thanks and happy new year!
