Time registration instead of story points in next gen projects?

Dear community, 

We are trying to fill our sprints with issues based on planned work duration. However, it seems that in next-gen projects, this data cannot be summed to view the total assigned time. Also, it seems impossible to have a quick overview of the remaining hours of work per sprint or make reports with this metric.

Is there a reason this feature is missing? How do you use the time logging functionality if there is no easy way to keep oversight on the time spent?

Any help is welcome :) Thanks!

Hi @Gijsbert van Marrewijk ,

When you say "next-gen projects", are you referring to next-gen Jira Software projects?

If so, you're right that time tracking functionality is quite limited. For now, if you do need more thorough time tracking capabilities, the only thing I can suggest is to use Jira Software's classic projects instead.

Thank you. Do you know if time tracking capabilities will be implemented in the future?

Hi @Gijsbert van Marrewijk - As far as I know, time tracking capabilities are on the team's radar, but I can't confirm that they're working on anything specific in this area. 

You can check out what's being worked on for next-gen at the Jira Software Cloud public roadmap.
