Auto log time / make default time logs on Tempo

So, I need to log time for my company, but due to my position I'm logging every day the same amount of time, on the same task. 


I feel real stupid clicking on every single day to log my work. Is there any way to either have Jira put a value by default, or to add multiple work logs at once?


Thanks for any help!

Hi Gavrilo,


There is no option to create worklogs automatically available within JIRA or Tempo, but you can log work for a selected period. 

Open the Log work dialog either in the Timesheet view or the Tempo panel in the issue view and select the "Period" option. Then set the dates and the hours you need to log.

You have the ability to log by period. On the worklog screen select Period then enter start date and end date  and work per day. So if you work 4hours per day for the week then using this week as an example you would use start date as Jan 21 and end date as Jan 25. Then 4h in the Work per day and that would add 4 hours to each of those days.
