Problems with Requiring Time Spent on Status Transitions


I have my sub-task workflow setup with a validator that requires Time Spent when transitioning between In Progress and Completed that launches a screen with the Log Work field. 


The scenario when someone enters a value for Time Tracking and attempts to make the transition from In Progress to Completed is problematic. The Log Work screen launches, but it doesn't pre-populate the Time Spent field with the value previously entered by the user.

I tried replacing the validator with a condition that checks that Time Spent !=0, but the user experience is less than ideal/not intuitive because the transition from In Progress to Completed isn't shown when the user clicks the status transition button.

Any ideas on how to set this up?
