    We are evaluating Tempo and would be very helpful if we could set default values for Work Attributes. Would save our users clicks and time.

    I love the idea to have this default value, because you can be more agile.

    Most of the cases in our vision need a default value, and we use the other values as alternatives!

    Should be nice to have!

    This would be very useful to have. It would help save time in constantly having to select an option that is commonly used. Some of these smaller features may seem like nothing but they are sometimes the reason why a company would choose an app over another.

    This is a productivity booster to have a default checked box.

    We use this as part of our billing system to select which billing category which is often the same for every person. No need to do per person, but would be nice.

    Hi All,

    This is very good idea!

    We need it in our company.

    Hi All,


    This is a very good idea and will be great to have this in Tempo.

    As Kevin said:

    There's 2 options for me, either i need to be able to make work attributes mandatory or optional based on the TEAM the user is part of OR i need to be able to set a default value.

    The support center of Tempo has made this a idea for be before I read the comments of Kevin and Tomislav on this idea. Here is the link so you can vote on it if you want: https://ideas.tempo.io/ideas/T-I-2433. See in particular the comment I posted to clear some things up.

    I hope they (Tempo) see the added value this brings to Tempo for all of there users.

    Would love to see this happen! We use this as part of our billing system to select which billing category which is often the same for every person. It would be so nice to set a default value for each user so they don't have to change it every time.

    -> The best solution would be to have both options - work attributes by team/project + ability to set a default value.

    The default value is something that our clients regularly ask.

    Hi,
    Is there any update on how far in the future this would be considered?
    Seems like the idea is already 5 years old :s

    Simple as it may seem, it will mean a big relief for a lot of my teams.

    -> We have a Work Attribute set as a 'static list' that is mandatory to fill in. However, the value is only needed for my Development teams.
    Yet due to the limited flexibility the available ALL my teams are currently required to fill in it, even if it's not applicable to them.

    (this is data shared with our government, which we cannot afford to be incomplete!)

    I would need the default to be set per project to make it useful.

    Use Case: Value for "Client" should default when creating a worklog, if only one value is available.

    This is an addition is a feature that would be a great addition on Atlassian Cloud as well.

    Each time selecting "Normal Working Hours" from the list is just so much loss of time per person each time doing any entry. There should be a default one would save so much time of everyone. Also in Cloud version same.

    Mainly it would be very helpful for dynamic dropdown lists.

    As it was in Tempo Timesheet 8...

    Thanks BR
