Time tracking in a Next Gen Project

I'm in IT Security and find the features in the Next-Gen project great. My only issue is that I can't track time... 

I know it can be done in the classic mode, but the views in next gen work much better for me. 

Is there a way to track time in the next gen project?

I would need this time to also be reportable. At the very least If i could export to a .csv file I could do it in excel.

It's possible to

  • Add the "Time tracking" field to an Issue Type in next-gen Project settings.
  • Log time and Time remaining from the Issue View
  • Have logged time show up in the Worklogs

We have not yet built the time tracking report although it will be something we make available in the future - most likely 1+ year time frame.



Hello all,


Can we have an update on this..


JSWCLOUD-17447 is marked as completed, but I don't see Time tracking Reports in my Next Gen project


I can see that we can track time on tickets, but I didn't find a way to report on those time entries...

Maybe I am missing something?



Hello @Marcos Tapia,

Next-Gen projects do not support time tracking at the moment.

There is an open issue that you can track JSWCLOUD-17447, but unfortunately, it is not on the short-term roadmap so it is worth to vote it in order to raise the importance. 

You can use an external app to get this functionality until Atlassian adds it on their own.

Clockwork Automated Timesheets is a free app that allows to track time in Next-Gen projects and log it to Jira worklog. This way the time logged is available in Jira reports as well as in external reporting apps.

Clockwork allows tracking time automatically, through Start/Stop Timer button as well as through the "Log Work" button that pops up a dialog (just like Jira does in classic projects).


I hope it helps.

Hi @Marcos Tapia,

@Jack Hunter _HeroCoders_ is correct. There is no native way to track time in Next-Gen projects now. It is, however, on the radar. You can view the issue in Atlassian's backlog at JSWCLOUD-17447.

It has a lot of attention, so add your vote to it to help move it up the priority list and to wacth it for updates.
