Setting to disable the new Activity feed

I noticed recently that Tempo (in Jira Cloud) has started to suggest activities in the calendar app. I personally would prefer to turn this feature off as it distracting and the suggested activities are not relevant. I would like it to remain blank until I add my own chosen activities.

    Hi everyone, thanks for your interest in this feature again. We are making progress but haven't released anything yet. If you're still interested in this idea, please book a meeting with me using this link to discuss this further: https://calendly.com/prod-mayank/30min

    We can totally understand the pain point for some organisations where this may not be ideal at the same time we do have many customers who love the suggestions coming from different providers (Calendar, Jira, VScode, JetBrains IDE).

    We are discussing this internally and will be able to provide a solution to control suggestion at an org level in Q1'22. Until then users can always control the suggestions at an individual level. Thanks for taking time to provide your feedback here.

    Tempo's response to this shows they have either not read, or not understood the issue.

    Making time logging "effortless" may be useful for individual users, but as a Project Manager's, Account Managers, Team Leaders etc, what we need is accurate work logs describing the actual effort taken on any particular issue. What we do not want is a button that makes it easy for developers to add a Worklog "Activity: Jira". This helps no one, and makes me doubt that the Tempo Product Team actually understand the purpose of Time logging .

    To answer the specific question "Hi, thanks for your feedback! What would make this feature work for your team? We would love more specific feedback on improving this in future." What has been stated in this thread is clear - we want the ability to turn this off at an Organisation level, and make the submission of real worklogs a requirement.

    This, plus the generally poor implementation of the calendar integration makes me question whether Tempo is a viable solution for my organisation in 2022

    This is very Annoying, My team members are complaining about this feature, Even if they view the issue, and forget to close that entire time is added to Activity.

    We should be able to disable this feature.

    It's causing problems for our teams, too. It's all too easy to convert activities to worklogs and end up with bogus time entries eg look at a Jira ticket for two minutes, get a 15m activity that can be accidentally converted into a 15m worklog. Why can't we turn this off as an organisation? What were you thinking?

    Yeah our people aren't happy with this. Not ideal to have to advise users to disable this ourselves when we should be able to disable it at the organisation level.

    For us disabling it on organization wide level would be good. We only use the tempo plugin in Jira and not the calendar integration, VCS integration or the new automatic logging chaos feature.

    We also find this feature distracting and not working for us. Please make it organization wide opt-in for the entire feature (not the visibility toggle on user base).

    This is not a good feature, is there a way to turn this off for the entire org?

    Hi Erin, I am sorry to hear that you find this new feature distracting. We have launched this feature to help our users log time effortlessly on the activities they have worked on. Please note that these are just suggestions and user can record time or delete the suggestion.

    Users can disable the activity cards from individual providers, using the filter icon in their My Work view, see the section "Disabling the connection to providers" in our help guide (https://help.tempo.io/cloud/en/tempo-timesheets/logging-your-time/logging-time-in-my-work/logging-time-using-the-activity-feed/understanding-tempo-automation.html).

    Thanks for reaching out to us and if you have any ideas about improving this feature please let us know by opening a new idea.

    Thank You

    Does anyone know how to turn this activities feature off? It's highly distracting.
