Tracking time on Productive projects directly from Jira is simple. Here's a step-by-step guide.
Open a Project and Select the Issue
Begin by opening the desired project in Jira and selecting the specific issue you want to track time on.
Access Time-Tracking Widget
Once you've opened the issue, locate the time-tracking widget.
Select the Budget
Choose the budget you're working on. You'll see the budget's name along with the client's logo. Under the name, a list of services will appear. Select the service relevant to your task.
Add Description (Optional)
If necessary, add a brief description of your work.
Start the Timer or Add Manual Entry
If you prefer to start the timer, simply scroll down and hit the "Start" button. Alternatively, for manual time entries, input the desired time and click "Save".
Storing Jira Issue Information
When recording time entries in Productive, certain information about the corresponding Jira issue is stored:
Jira Issue ID
Jira Issue Link
Jira Issue Status
Jira Issue Summary
Jira Worklog ID
This information is valuable for generating reports and can be used as fields and filters in Productive's time entry reports.
