How can I see/set spending time on task?


I just start to configure/use JIRA for my team.

For a given Tack (into a User Story), I would like to manage time. But I don't found where I can set the spending time on a Task. I found "Time tracking" option but spending time isn't include (just original and remaining).

So how can I manage spending time for Tack? And how can I see the spending time on each User Story?

Thanks in advance for any help,

If you don't see "Log Work" under 'More' menu you may not have "Work on Issue" permission. Check permissions of your project. You can find more details about logging work on here. If you need some timesheet tool, I can recommend our "WorkLogPRO" add-on.
