Date started: Making time (hh:mm) component optional?


When work is logged on a task one mandatory field is 'Date Started'. That is good, but I find the need to give a specific time to be overkill (just specifying the date the work started is good enough).

So I would like it to be that the date, for example '2013-04-30', is present in this field by default and no time. If the user would then feel the need to enter a particular time it should be possible but not mandatory.

Is this possible to implement? Naturally there might be technical limitations that hinders but how close can we come to what I've described?

I have not tried this personally but since the Log Work is a dialog popup, you can manipulate it using Javascript:

AJS.$(document).bind('dialogContentReady', function(event, dialog) {
