JIRA Issue Display: Add a "Log Work" button next to the "Comment" button

When I view an issue, at the bottom of the page there is a row of tabs under the Activity section.

Under the list of comments is a button that allows me to add another comment.

It just seems logical to me that there should be a similar button to Log Work if I click on the "Work Log" tab. Easier for the user than going to the top of the screen and clicking on the "More" button to select "Log Work" from a list.

Is this something that Atlassian would consider as a minor enhancement? 

Or is there already an option for it?

For me it sounds like a good idea, but right now the work log tab seems supposed only to edit or delete existing work log entries and not to add log work. By the way: On the right you should see a "box" called "Time Tracking" where you can  click on + (plus) to add  time spent. This box is usable when the timeestimate field is not empty.

Thanks for pointing out the + sign - I had never realised what it was for.

My suggestion for the button was as a minor time saver. I often glance through the details of work already logged before creating a new work log entry.
