Will time tracking be added to next-gen projects

We are very dependent on tracking our time on jira cards. 

We are very eager to move to next-gen, but we need time tracking to do so. In other questions it is mentioned that this feature is on the roadmap, but I cannot find it.

Hi, guys FYI,

Atlassian rolled out Time Tracking for Next-gen projects.

  • Add the "Time tracking" field to an Issue Type in Next-gen Project settings.
  • Log time and Time remaining from the Issue View
  • Have logged time show up in the Worklogs

Thank you.

Hi @Kasper Møller

Time tracking is not on the road map yet, you can view what is coming up here:

Next-Gen Road Map

You can also watch the enhancement request for time estimates here: 




I have to say, that's a little disappointing.

Please let me know if Time Estimate is available in Next Gen projects. I'm having a dog of a time trying to work out how to swap "story point estimate" to "hours".



Is this possible in Next Gen?


We also absolutely need time tracking to be able to use next-gen at all.  no way to tell if we're on track or not without it!

This is absolutely ridiculous. An essential feature to track projects is not even in the roadmap? Now I know how seriously is Jira taking the next gen template projects...

Just heads up that some third-party add-ons can provide time tracking in Next-Gen.

Clockwork Automated Timesheets Pro or Clockwork Free can do this.

I can't use next gen projects because estimation in hours is not clear....not everyone wants to use story points

Hi Scott, 
I see time tracking is now on the roadmap. Any ETA on when it will be delivered? 

Bump. I would also love to have this information :)
