Improve Time tracking

This is just query to determine how best to collect time tracking information from users. What works best for you?

  • Adding a visual element to the issue make logging time easier to find?
  • Creating a new form for each work transition to prompt users to enter time spent?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Found solutions to both approaches, and will try them both:

Is it possible to move the Log Work menu item from the More Actions Menu to Button?

There is a web section for 'Log Work' in system-issueoperations-plugin.xml under WEB-INF/classes folder. You can change the weight property of it to '5' and the Log Work will appear on the top!

Use Script Runner plugin and add a validator to check whether the total spent time is more than zero.
