Tracking Hours against projects

Hi All. I have installed Tempo. I am having issues.  All I want to do is have a place in Jira where I can put total number of hours on from a quote and when someone enters their time, it burns down the hours.  Can someone help?

If you have an Original Estimate value, your work logs (whether entered natively or created through Tempo, Clockwork, or Harvest (or whatever)) will track against it.

Most of our software projects have a scrum board (for the Devs) and a kanban board (more for PM/PO/Ops) so it may be that the time tracking setting in the scrum board is governing this, but it's a fix that doesn't require any apps.

Hi, it should be as easy as estimating the time on the issue and then logging your time against it.  You'll be able see the remaining time on the issue.

I am in a software project and not a scrum board.  Is there a way to add estimated time to other project types in Jira?

@Clare Lawson - You need to add "Time Tracking" fields to the screens associated with the issue types that you want to log time against.

This should then open up the original estimate, remaining estimate and logging time functionality.

If you are using the cloud version of Jira you may also want to take a look at "Timesheet Tracking for Jira" add-on as it adds some timesheet and reporting elements that you may have seen from Tempo documentation for Jira Server/DataCenter.

If it's for basic usage then it should work fine.  Just be careful of the Original estimate field.  Atlassian have for unknown reasons not made this field available in Advanced Roadmaps, or other external integrations.  We have got around this by making our own field and syncing this to the other time fields, but it is a bit clumsy when using it in Advanced Raodmaps.  Also, the roll up of time and the reducing of remaining time based on time against children does not work well at all.

Hi @Clare Lawson, how are you? 👋🏻


If you're open to considering alternative and more affordable solutions, I would like to share another app that may be useful in your need / scenario 👉🏻 MindPro Deliver

This is a cloud app built for Jira that allows you to track and manage your team's work progress, timesheets, and costs when executing the project delivery for both internal areas and/or external customers.


Here you can see a quick tour, and here is the documentation.

I hope it helps. Cheers - Eduardo from Mindpro Team.

Hi!  Can if I do a trial, can I keep Tempo on?
