How do I add the tempo real time tracker to all issues?

On other JIRA installations I've seen a tempo real time tracker on all issues. So when I enter the issue, there is a nice timer in the bottom right, where I can say "start tracking time on issue X".

I would like to add a similar one to my issues, but both Googling and reading documentation didn't help me.

How do I add the real time tracker to all my issues, so it's easy for developers to add and track time?

Hi Lars

Do you have Tempo Timesheets installed? After installing Timesheets, open the tracker from the issue view by expanding the 'More' dropdown and choose 'Start tracker'.

Having multiple trackers operating simultaneously is not supported in the current Timesheets version (7.14), but it has been requested to us in our support channel (
