Capturing more than project / ticket in toggl from JIRA?

Hi There,

We need to have a higher resolution on the information captured by toggl from JIRA.

This could be by capturing the parent EPIC that a JIRA story or task belongs to, or by capturing a specific field content that we would add for his purpose, so that we can correctly bill hours to different work packages within a project.

Is there any way to capture an extra resolution of data into Toggl beyond the base JIRA ticket number / project

Greatly appreciate your thoughts on this, we want to get all the value we can from the two systems.

We're trying to do the same thing, we use components for splitting the work and epics for overarching stories (projects) that encompass multiple components. Either way would be nice, using an epic might work, but we'd have a huge list of epics to track when using an agile work board between multiple projects. This is why we favored components.


With joggler you have to ways to achieve this:

  1. Use components like Roy does, Joggler will tag the toggle time entry with the component.
  2. Use the project tracking feature

On the toggl configuration page in JIRA you can mark your Epic issue type as a project tracking issue type. For Each epic you can then create a separate project in Toggl and all work that belongs to the Epic is then tracked in the corresponding project.
