Mailbox integration with Jira

Hi All,

Is there any possibility to measure time on a project in Jira based on meetings from the MS Office calendar?

We are looking for a way to avoid manually entering the time of work on the project and for the information to be downloaded automatically from our mailboxes.

Thank you for your support!

Best regards,

Hi @Sebastian Szymanek 

You can user REST API to send a request and add a worklog. But out of curiosity, where on MS calendar are you going to add a "time spent" value? You have to have a field to fill in in order to send even an http request. You could always look on the marketplace for an app.

Hi Alex, I was thing to add in the invitation some "project id" and then Jira would reflect the time spend during the project meeting within some tracing device. What kind of filed do you mean? If you have any experience what kind of app from marketplace do you recommend? Thank you a lot!

You can't add time spent to a project. Time spent is added while working on an issue.

  • So ideally, with that meeting should send an invite to a "jira email".
  • That email would create an issue on Jira on a specific project
  • And you had to acquire the time spent from a text on the subject or body of the email. The time spent should have a specific formal all the time. Either that is in minutes or seconds.
  • To do the above you could use Jira Automation and smart values
  • And then edit the time spent field as a specific user
