Hi Shravya,

You are probably getting a "pop-up" screen on each status change where you're asked to enter your time spent?

If you have the permissions to do so: you have to edit the workflow of that issue type for the project. In the workflow you have to edit the transtions (the arrows between statuses). You'll see:

  • The screen showing up during the transition
  • A validator that makes the time spent mandatory: remove this one to make the time spent optional.

@Charlie Misonne Thank you for the detailed response. Issue resolved
