Creating new Task in JIRA - don't show the work log for the use assigned to the mission.


I am using Jira for software (in cloud).


I have created an issue an attached it to a specific user.

I want to add the estimted time for that issue (as task).


When I try to log in as that user I cannot see the ability to log work (If the user work for 4 hours, 5 hours, etc.).

1. How can I see that?

2. How can I track the users' activity (by some gant progress etc.)?

Hi Eitan,

You can do this with a plugin.  One such plugin is Tempo Timesheets and you can choose a user from a dropdown:

"The current user name is displayed in the header of the log work dialog to keep reference, in case a Team Lead (or a user with Approve Timesheet permission) is logging work for team members, given the option User with Approve Timesheet Permission can log work for team members is enabled in Global Configuration."



I have logged on with the specific user.

I cannot see any log work ability of the other user.

I have also tried adding a permission for log work to the role (the user is in administrator role), but didn't see that the user see "log work" button.
All of the characteristics as on: are OK, but still I cannot see any ability for the user to "log work".


Also when I open the issue, and choose: admin -> where is my field. Choose time-tracking, I see the following:
