Set per-user working time in JIRA


Is it possible to configure working time on a per-user basis in JIRA?

I'm creating a Scrum Sprint and the time estimation is wrong becase one of our developers only works part-time.

Hey there, Richard.

The time tracking is only implemented globally as of now. I believe that you might be interested to watch this Improvement ticket below:

Hi Monique,

Thanks for the info. It looks similar, but not quite like what I want to do I'm afraid. It appears to be more reporting, as opposed to actual working hours per user.



I have the same issue and would like to plan the time of team members, based on their working hours. eg. someone only works 20 hours a week, or only tuesday, wednesday, thursday.

Any recommendations?


Hi, is there any news or solution to Mr. Richard's excellent question (configure working time on a per-user basis). This should be basic functionality in an Agile/Scrum tool (or even in a plain ticket-system as JIRA). Anyone knows if this is proposed as a new feature in JIRA/Agile?
