You've done a good job, Tempo, making logging time easier in the past several months. Thanks!
You could make Timesheets even better if you add a time tracking tool like Toggl.
What I like about Toggl:
There's a button at the top of every ticket (if you use the Chrome extension). Clicking that button automatically starts tracking time for that ticket - the Summary becomes the entry Description.
Clicking the Toggl button on a different ticket automatically stops the previous tracker session and starts tracking time for this new ticket. You can never have two trackers logging time simultaneously. (This is important.)
I forget to stop and/or stop logging time often. Toggl lets me modify the start and stop times for a tracker session as needed. I might, for example, edit the finished session, ending it earlier, and then start the subsequent session at that new time. I can edit the begin time even if the session is in progress. Obviously I can only edit the end time when the the tracker session has been closed. This is one of Toggl's key advantages.
At the end of the day, the Toggl report summarizes all tracker sessions by ticket. So if I worked on 6 tickets during the day, but jumped around them so there were 30 tracker sessions, the report would summarize the individual sessions into 6 ticket totals. Then I transfer that info into Tempo as 6 time logs.
What I don't like about Toggl:
It's integrated into Jira, but it isn't integrated into Tempo. That means I have to transfer the summary into Tempo My Work at the end of the day.
Because Tempo is much more tightly integrated into Jira, and the data needs to end up in Tempo, I'm sure Tempo could do a better job than Toggl.
I'd be happy to discuss this with anyone.
