How to prevent users from logging hours for past dates?

Ashish Gireesh March 26, 2024

Hello,

We are using Automated Log Work to log hours in Jira. We have an internal issue where users are logging hours for past dates and we want to prevent date as per our company policy.

When we are logging work under Automated Log Work inside an issue, the users won't be able to select past dates. (See attached screenshot below)

However, if we choose the log work option from the additional options for an issue, we can select a past date. ( See attached Screenshots)

Is there any way, I can restrict the users from choosing any past date while logging their hours or hide this log work option from the additional options for an issue. Please advise!

Hi @Ashish Gireesh 

I'm sorry, but as of now, Jira doesn't support the functionality to restrict users from logging work on past dates or hiding the log work option from the additional options for an issue. These features are not available out of the box in Jira.

However, you might want to explore some workarounds using custom scripts or add-ons that might offer similar functionality.
