How to Use Time Tracking In YouTrack
1. Locate timer button on a YouTrack issue
Click the Issues tab and select a required issue. A dialog window opens where you can view and edit the contents of the issue. You will see the Start timer button next to the title of the issue.
2. Start timer on an issue
Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your YouTrack working time. Notice that the Start timer button changes to the Stop timer button and displays the time spent on the issue.
If you are the workspace owner or assigned admin in TMetric and start the timer for the first time, TMetric pulls out from YouTrack and adds to your TMetric workspace:
- issue name
- issue ID
- project name
The corresponding time entry appears on the Time page in the TMetric web app. You can easily navigate back to the YouTrack issue simply by clicking the link icon next to the task name.
3. Edit time entry, if necessary
A time entry with an external task can be edited. You can edit the name of the task and project without losing a link to the YouTrack issue.
To disassociate the task from the YouTrack issue, click the cross icon next to the task name in the bottom right corner of the time entry editor.
4. View a time report
Reports show the time from different external systems, as well as the time entered manually in TMetric.
TMetric is a great time tracking web app allowing to control your time and stay productive throughout the day!
