Tempo is excited to announce several updates in our latest server release, including improved reporting functions, the ability to choose your preferred date and time format in reports and the option to manage currencies in Budgets.

Tempo is excited to announce several updates in our latest server release, including improved reporting functions, the ability to choose your preferred date and time format in reports and the option to manage currencies in Budgets. As well, you’ll notice a new main panel in the Jira Issue view that displays worklogs, plans and expenses in the same view. The panel shows realtime data on the issue.

The panel can be filtered by showing only your data or all data. Moreover, it's possible to filter by viewing all types of Tempo entries or just one at a time. Tempo stores your panel settings between issues.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about these changes; as always, if you have any questions or feedback, our support team is standing by.

Don’t forget to check out our release notes for information about all the changes in this release.

Here’s the full scoop on the new panel:


Main web panel view: In addition to combining the two Tempo panels that were previously present, the new panel will feature the following changes:


Worklog and plan data displayed is unscoped,  i.e. there is no pre-selected period; you will see a paginated view of the worklogs and plans you have permission to view, ordered by date. For period based data, we recommend using the Tempo Reports.


To preserve performance, a maximum of 5 entries are loaded; subsequent entries are loaded as you navigate through the pages. Page count and navigation options help you navigate through the data.

It's possible to filter the panel, so it either shows both worklogs and plans, only worklogs or only plans. By default All Types is selected.


The panel can also be filtered to show only your data or all data (limited to data you have permission to view, default view of your own data only). Tempo stores your panel settings between issues, so you will have a consistent experience as you navigate through issues. If you do not have permission that allow you to view the data of other users, you will not have the option change this filter.

Note that if you use Tempo Planner without Timesheets, the filtering dropdown is not displayed.

A split button to Log work / Plan time is displayed in the panel. To facilitate time and planning entries, you can now access these functions from the main web panel.


Note that if you use Tempo Planner without Timesheets, the Log Work button disappears, and the split button will be a regular button with Plan Time.

In-line editing of worklog entries is no longer possible, but we trigger opening of the worklog/plan form to update the worklog when you click Edit. From here, you can edit all worklog fields where previously, the editing of entries was limited to the few fields displayed. This allows the user to edit work attributes and billable hours.

The worklog history has moved; it is now displayed as a tab at the bottom of the Jira Issue view, labelled as “Worklogs”. As before, you will only see data that your permission settings allow you to view.
