Setting up Tempo

Required Tempo product: Tempo Timesheets for Cloud or Tempo Planner for Cloud

Required permission: JIRA Administrators  

Ensure that you have the Tempo administrators permission

You can only perform administrative tasks within Tempo if you have the Tempo administrators permission, so you must grant yourself this permission before you get started, JIRA administrators are not granted this permission automatically. To do so, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select System.
  3. On the left menu bar, locate the Security section, and select Global permissions.
  4. Scroll down to Add Permission.
  5. Select the 'Tempo Administrator' permission from the Permission drop-down menu.
  6. Select 'jira-administrators' from the Group down-down menu. Click Add.


Note 1: If your version of Tempo Timesheets for Cloud does not include the Tempo Sidebar, see the Tempo Timesheets 7.20 cloud documentation instead.

Note 2: If your version of Tempo Planner for Cloud does not include the Tempo Sidebar, see the Tempo Planner 4.0 server documentation instead; all of the Tempo Planner 4.0 server documentation applies to your version, except information about a resource overview and importing and exporting of plans.
