Creating Worklogs

In addition to using timers, Clockwork allows users to create worklogs manually.

Creating Worklogs from an Issue

As an alternative to using timers, users can create worklogs manually by clicking the + button on the Clockwork UI.

A dialog will open prompting the user to enter the time worked and optional details (description, tags, etc.).

Creating Worklogs from the Calendar

This feature is only available in Clockwork Pro.

In Clockwork Pro, users can also create worklogs by clicking on the appropriate day/time slots in the Calendar View:

  1. Navigate to Apps > Clockwork > My Work and select the Calendar tab.

  2. Click and drag on the appropriate date/time slot.

  3. Enter the appropriate Jira issue, or select the issue from those shown in the dropdown.

  4. Enter additional details (description, tags, etc.) in the dialog.

Note that if a worklog is created for the incorrect date/time, it can be dragged to the correct time slot.

Time Formats

Clockwork accepts the following time formats:

  • 1:15 for one hour and 15 minutes

  • 1h 15m for one hour and 15 minutes

  • 1.25 for one hour and 15 minutes

  • 1h for one hour

  • 1.0 for one hour

  • 15m for 15 minutes

  • 15 for 15 minutes

  • 0.25 for 15 minutes

Time Remaining

When you manually create a worklog, you have the option to add Remaining Time. This allows you to show an estimate of how much time will be needed to resolve the issue. Whenever work is logged on the issue, the remaining time will be recalculated.

The Remaining Time estimate can be manually changed when creating new worklogs, or by editing an existing worklog.
