Timesheet - report of time logged

I would like to see the time that I have logged for an issue for each workdate and not for the updated date.

For example, if I enter 8 hours today and, on the same day, I enter 8 hours for yesterday, how can I see a report that shows 8 hours for each day?

Hello @Hessel F

Unfortunately, there are no Jira built-in reports that could show you the time you (or your team) logged in particular days to particular issues.

On the bright side though, there are Marketplace apps like our Worklogs - Time Tracking and Reports that can give you visibility to such information. Here's a screenshot demonstrating how the report looks like broken down by users and total time logged in the given day.

You can click on each time entry to get a list of all issues the time was logged to. You can also choose grouping by issues, to display the time broken down by the issues, instead of a total time logged in a day.

If this sounds like what you are looking for, you can give Worklogs a try.

Best regards,

Nearly all timesheet add-ons including our WorklogPRO add-on displays 8 hours per day in this scenario. All of them shows worklog on the day you specify when logging work, not on the day you perform the log work action.

Hi @Hessel F -

That should be the case that you see the work logged on the date you specify. Can you add a screenshot, so we can help you troubleshoot further?


Jira updated.jpgAs you can see, when I filter the issues, I can show the 'updated' field and not the 'worklog date'. That means I can see when the issue was updated, but I can't see on which day I actually did the work (i.e. the worklog date).

I wonder why Jira makes it so easy to capture time for any date, if the only way to see it is to buy an add-on?

Thank you to everyone who has replied, and I accept the answers that say that it can only be done by using add-ons. The company policy where I work is that we cannot use add-ons.

There are few Chrome extensions like Timesheet for Jira, that may suite your needs.

Yes, I see what you mean from your screenshot - sorry about that. Maybe you can try the Chrome extension as Andriy mentioned?

The Chrome extension that Andriy mentioned is useful, but it gives the hours logged per day, without breaking them down into issues. 

It is definitely an improvement!

The one that I am going to end up using is also a Google Chrome extension and it's called "Jira Assistant". 

It gives reports of work logged per story and sub task and the reports can be for groups or individuals. 

It has a number of reporting features and I am impressed!
