Making a Filter to track employee's working hours (overtime)


is it possible to create a filter that shows a list of overtime for each employee (user)?

Here's an example:

Let's say we have three employees. Every one is using the built-in timetracking feature to track their time on each issue. At the end of a month, the CEO wants a summary about each employee and his/her working hours.

Each employee is on the payroll for 160 hours of work per month (40 hours per week, 8 hours per day).

In July the first employee has logged 170 hours of work, the second employee has logged 140 hours of work and the last one has logged 160 hours of work.

The summary would be something like this:

  • Employee one -> 10 hours overtime
  • Employee two -> -20 hours of work, 0 hours overtime
  • Employee three -> 0 hours overtime

Is this possible with the built-in features in Jira or do I need any plugin (or maybe write my own plugin)?

Thanks for any help! :)

If you want overtime details, you will have to write a plugin. If you are just looking for a report to show the time logged by a user over a selected period, there are plugins out there like Tempo which can do that.
