make log time default to units of hours

When a user logs time to an issue, how can I make JIRA assume the units are in hours without the "h" suffix?

When I type in "1.75" in the field, it is recorded as "0.03". It assumes minutes unless I use "1.75h"

You can select the default unit for time tracking at Administration > System > Time Tracking

I wish I could give you bonus points for giving the navigation path right to it!

lol. glad it helped ;)

I was also looking for this recently, however it appears to have moved Administration > Issues > Time Tracking,

I add this so that others looking for the same don't get confused!
