We use story points for most things, but for escalations we would like to keep track of the time spent on the work. We always use bugs or tasks for escalations, but not all bugs or tasks are escalations (we might include some in our sprint).
This doesn't have to be a hard requirement - prompting users to submit times would be just fine. But I would prefer not to do that to issues where it is not relevant (stories in a sprint, for example).
Is this possible?
You can add a condition in the transition. If you want it to apply only to Bugs, you would need a workflow for bugs only and your usual workflow for the other issue types. When that workflow is created, you go to the transition when you want people to enter time and you add a condition asking for time to be logged. It will be a hard requirement.
If you want more of a reminder, you can have a screen pop up when a bug is goes through a transition. To do that, you have to create a screen with the fields you want filled in and you add it to your transition. This is done by clicking "Edit" in the page of the transition and adding the screen you created in "Transition View".
Hope this helps.
