Time stamps on JIRA Issues

How do I find out the time when a user created an issue when the views and logs only show the text Today or Yesterday? Is the only way I can get to it is to export to Excel? I didn't see anything in the UI.

If you hover your mouse over the text "Today" or "Yesterday," you should see the timestamp for that comment in a small alt-text popup. The popup should appear pretty quickly. This also works anywhere else when viewing a JIRA issue when you see the text "Today," "Yesterday," "Just now," etc.


Thank you for that; I had tried previously, but guess I wasn't patient enough or found the right hot zone to trigger it.  But, I went back and do see this now.  Thank you!
