Hello, what I want to do is have a "working on" column in my kanban board that starts the timer on the issue, and the timer stops when I pull the issue into a different column, so I can record exactly how much time I've spent on my project.
I have activated the manual timer in the issues so I can add time, but I want to skip that bit out to make my workflow more efficient!
I've seen people do this before so I know it's possible i just have no clue how to do it! Help!!
Hi Laura - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Typically, I have seen then done by creating two custom fields - one for the Start Date/Time and one for the End Date/Time using Date Time Picker fields.
Then add a post function to the transition into the status to populate the Start Date/Time field with the current date and time. And do the same with the transition out of the status that populates the End Date/Time field.
