Is there any sort of widget I can add to my JIRA Dashboard to enable quick entry of timesheet records without having to go into each Project & Issue?
It would be great to be able to add the "Log Work" screen as a widget on the Dashboard:
Amendment for clarification:
There is a User Timesheet gadget, but I believe it only displays the timesheet for the user and does not allow editing. But, since the user name in this gadget is an active link to the user timesheet the user may be able to click the name, open the timesheet, and enter time for the issues listed there rather than going into each project/issue.
I haven't tried this yet; maybe it will get you partway at least?
You can use timesheet dashboard item of WorklogPRO. Double clicking on a cell will display 'Log Work' dialog and allow you to create new worklog entries. All widgets will update automatically. You can add various charts and timesheet types. You can even use 'current user' variable for timesheet and it will adjust for any logged-in user.
I have attached a screenshot for you.
If you are using the filter results gadget (or any gadget showing the action button), you can simply click on the action button (...) and select Log Work, without opening the issue or project. That will populate the worklog dialog on top of the dashboard.
Is that what you are looking for?
Ok...but that is not really what I was looking for @Sandra Axelsdottir.
What I would like is the Log Work box as a standalone widget right on my Dashboard all the time as shown in my OQ.
I can use the pulldown menu to select my Project/Task to enter my time for. And, I can check the Log another checkbox to enter all my time for the day. I typically jot down my time on note paper while working and then at the end of the day I enter all my time into JIRA.
Yes, I could enter my time as I go using the JIRA system, but I work on so many things throughout the day for approx. 15-minute increments each that it is just way easier for me to enter my time once, at end of day, into JIRA :)
I'm probably the only person to have suggested this widget feature, otherwise Tempo would have developed it by now I imagine.
Thanks for your thoughts and ideas though.
