Hi @Андрей Зонин - one way to do it might be to create another looping transaction on your first status that the issue moves into upon create.

Then in a post function on the Create transition have it auto-transition the looping transition.

Then have a transition screen on the looping transition that includes the log work field.

Hi @Андрей Зонин ,

while it's not possible to use the native field, you might consider using a workflow app like Jira Workflow Toolbox (, where you can add a post function ( to log work to your create transition depending on a number field present on the create screen.
