Jira Log Work is a built-in feature of the Jira software, a popular project management and issue-tracking tool developed by Atlassian. This feature allows users to log the time they have spent on a particular issue or task, making it easier to track individual and team progress, manage workloads, and provide accurate reporting.
Logging work in Jira effectively requires a combination of understanding the tool's features, establishing best practices, and being consistent in your approach. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make the most out of the "Jira Log Work" feature:
Navigate to the specific Jira issue or task you've worked on.
Look for the "More" option (sometimes represented as three dots) or find a button labeled "Log Work" directly Click on it to open the time logging interface.
or enter directly in the TimeTracking Field
If you don't have this field, you should read this Jira Guru to learn how to create one.
In the "Time Spent" field, input the duration you've worked on the issue. Jira accepts various formats like "2h 30m" for 2 hours and 30 minutes.
Adjust the "Date Started" field if you're backlogging or if the work was done on a different day.
Use the "Work Description" (or similarly named) field to add details about the work done during the logged time.
Be precise but concise. Mention significant developments, challenges faced, or particular outcomes achieved.
Jira allows you to provide an original estimate of how long you think an issue will take.
As you log work, you can adjust the "Remaining Estimate" to indicate how much more time you believe is needed to complete the task.
Click on the "Save" button to commit the time log to the issue.
