Can you add time tracking to a project by default?

Is there a setting somewhere that allows me to add the Time Tracking field to ALL new projects when I create the project, so I don't keep forgetting?

Hello @Rob Cowell 

Welcome to the community.

Are you working with Team Managed or Company Managed projects?

Did you review the information in this article?

These are Team Managed projects - thanks for the article link, I'll check that through.  Very much a Jira Admin newbie, although been a dev with tickets assigned to them for years :-)

If you are working with Team Managed projects, then I don't think there is a way to ensure time tracking is on for all projects.

The aim of Team Managed projects is to enable each team to customize their project as they see fit. Any custom fields created for a Team Managed project are unique to that project, even if the field has the same name as a custom field in another Team Managed project. Workflows set up in a Team Managed project are not shared with other projects.

If you need to have projects set up in a consistent and standard manner, you should use Company Managed projects instead. Those can share the Schemes that are used to specify workflows, permissions, notifications, fields, and screens.
