Worklog Calendar Time View

The Worklog Calendar Time View allows you to create worklogs quickly and easily by dragging suggestions onto a time cell on the calendar canvas. The start time field is always visible in Time View but its visibility in the List view depends on the following setting in Tempo global configuration: "Users can specify a start time when they log work."

Time View

In the Worklog Calendar Time View you can get a quick overview of logged work for the dates displayed and visualize gaps and overlaps in your timesheet. In the Issues suggestion sidebar at the right, you can drag and drop issues directly onto a time cell in the calendar. The Log Work form is displayed on this action.

Calendar Canvas

The default view in the Calendar Canvas is the week of of the current date. You can navigate forward and backward one week at a time by clicking the navigation buttons. Day navigation toolbar is displayed at the bottom of the page if the screen resolution is low. The Today button takes you back to the current date. If worklogs have been created in the selected period they are displayed as Worklog Cards on the canvas.

Gaps and Overlaps

You can see the gaps in the Calendar Canvas and If worklogs overlap, they appear stacked on top of each other so you can easily correct the logged time.

The duration of the worklog can easily be edited by dragging the Worklog Card on the timeline in the Time View. 

Issue Suggestion Categories

Four Issue Suggestion Categories are displayed in the sidebar, each showing Jira issues from predefined jql searches. If you have Jira Activity stream configured on your instance latest issues in the activity stream are displayed in the My Activities section.

Log Work Dialog

In addition to the default fields for a worklog, all Work Attributes configured in Tempo Timesheets are displayed in the Log Work Dialog. This dialog is also validated according to the configuration in Tempo administration. A progress bar is displayed for each day showing the logged work vs. the required work for the user.
