Worklog display format

Hello all,

I know for sure I read about this issue before but I can't find it any more.

The worklog is displayed in the "friendly" way as "1d 5h 10m".

How can this be configured to display everything in one defined base unit?


13.17 h (would be the equivalent of the friendly notation above)

Thanks in advance

You can configure this by going to System > Issue Feature > Time Tracking. Change the "Time estimates will be displayed in the following format" to hours. More information, you can visit

Yes, this was what I was searching for. Turned out I didn't search properly.
