Timesheets

Tempo Timesheets is a time-tracking and time-planning add-on for JIRA. You can log time that you worked on different JIRA issues and plan time for future work. Your user timesheet displays the time that you logged. Depending on the permission that you have, you can also view other types of timesheets, where logged time is grouped by, for example, JIRA project, customer account, or JIRA issue.
