Mandatory Work Log/Time Tracking in Nextgen

Hi All,

Is there a way we can make 'time spent' or other time tracking mandatory before an issue is set to closed?

I'm aware this is possible in Classic but need to achieve in Nextgen.

Based on your question, I created a feature request suggesting this option:
