Log Time on a Projekt not Issue

Hey Community,


we are currently tring to figure out the best possible way to track time for our internal Projektes. We are a b2b industrial company and using Jira for our digitization and organizational development projects. We would like to track time on how long project members spend with the project. However, we are trying to avoid using issues for that. Our project members are not working 100% of their time in projects, and we do not have an issue for each and every task that they are doing within the project.

Is there a good way to record worked time on a project and not each issue, or maybe an app that you can suggest me. My current approach is that there is one "Timesheet Ticket" per project, to which everyone should record times.

Ideally you would actually track the time and the issues themselves. This gives a much more detailed view of where time is spent.

With that said given you do not desire that approach one idea would be to create just a few tasks that are used for logging time. You might create one task per person and tell them to log all of their time on that task. You could then use the dashboard to illustrate your time tracking.

You may also look into various marketplace ad on apps if that is an option as there may be some good project tracking apps.
