couple of questions regarding the usage of Tempo

Hello Everyone,

we have rolled out Tempo Timesheets today for our division and will be using it log time for both client projects as well as abscence leave management.

Three questions:

- We will be using Tempo globally, i.e. also for other distributed teams. We might run into the situation that some teams might need to have a deviating booking "period". I know that Tempo allows the definition of up to two "Periods". Would that be the proper feature to use for different teams with different deviating periods (all of which using the same Tempo and Jira instance).

- Having said that, does TEmpo allow several client instances on one Jira instance?

- Finally, a manager would receive requests for vacations from his employees via the Activity Stream in Jira. How can we change the text in those notifications to say "requested vacation" instead of now "requested plan" .... please see attached image ... I circled the word plan in Red.

Much obliged!

cheers, Lilith

Hi Lilith,

- the period is the same for all users. The second period is thought to make it possilbe to have a monthly period that is not the same as a calendar-month. You can create a feature request in our Atlassian JIRA ( that other users can vote for and add comments on.

- It is not possible to run several Tempo client instances (or any other JIRA plugin) on one Jira instance.

- The change of text in the activity stream is not supported in the current Tempo Timesheets version, but it has been requested in ( Please vote on it and add a comment that will help Tempo developers to implement this request.

Kind regards
