Using the Issues Side Panel - Tempo Cloud

The Issues side panel on the right side of the My Work calendar lists Jira issues organized by type (from predefined JQL searches). There you can access your Jira issues for logging time against them. Issues are grouped into lists that are displayed on tabs you can select between. By default, Recent, Assigned, and Favorite issues are available for quick access. You can configure the Issues side panel to show the issues most relevant to you. Tempo remembers your side panel preferences.

You can log time on issues by dragging them from the Issues side panel onto the My Work calendar.

To access the Issues side panel:

  • By default, the Issues side panel is collapsed. To expand or collapse it, click the arrow (<) on the right edge of the calendar.

Selecting issue lists in the issue picker

Issues are grouped into tabbed lists in the Issues side panel. Click the tabs to switch between lists.

To see additional issue lists, click  next to the tabbed issue lists. Select the list you want view.

You can select which 3 issue lists should be displayed in the Issues side panel for easy access. In the Issues side panel, click 

The top three lists are bolded to show that they are easy access, and in what order. To select which lists are displayed and in what order, click the || to the left of the list name and drag it to the desired location. You can only display three tabbed lists in the Issues side panel at a time. 

  • Recent - a selection of issues that you have recently viewed. This is using a Jira issue history function.
  • Assigned - issues assigned to you by yourself or others. There is a limit of 200 issues that are shown in this list.

  • Favorite - all issues that you have marked as favorites and want to access frequently. You can mark an issue as a favorite by clicking the star next to it.
  • Internal Issues - a selection of issues that are configured as Internal, such as vacation, sickness, etc.
  • Watched - issues you are watching.

When you are done, click X in the upper-right corner to exit Configure mode.

Marking Issues as Favorites

If you are working on many different issues at one time, it can be helpful to mark some of them as favorites, making them easier to access. You can mark an issue as a favorite by clicking the star next to it so it turns yellow, as shown below. All your favorite issues are available in the Favorite list.

When you no longer need quick access to an issue you have marked as a favorite, simply remove it from your favorites list by clicking the star.

Adding Jira Projects and Filters to the Issue Lists

You can add Jira projects and Jira filters as custom issue lists. Jira projects and filters can only be added in the My Work Issues side panel. You can add multiple projects and filters.

  1. In the Issues side panel, click . For information about how to open the Issues side panel, see above.
  2. Select the Jira project and/or the Jira filter you want to add.

  3. The project/filter is displayed at the top of the issue list. If you don't want the project/filter to be tabbed in the Issues side panel, drag it down the list.
