Hi @Paulina Mijal 

If you see the time tracking section on the right of the issue screen you can click on the "plus" sign and this will open you the same popup like when going to "More > Log Work"

You can also create a transition from any status to any status  in your workflow, display a screen with the log work field on it. 

But of course you need the proper permission on the project and issue you need to log work on... 

I hope it helps. 


Hi @Paulina Mijal ,

can you please specify the version of JIRA server instance? Work on issue is one of options of project permissions. Check, if your account match the option conditions.

Best regards,
