Setting up Tempo Timesheets

Cloud Server

Required Tempo product: Tempo Timesheets for Cloud

Required permission: JIRA Administrators 

As an administrator, you can set up Tempo Timesheets to automatically enable certain users - typically managers or team leads - to complete some Timesheet tasks for other team members, such as logging work and viewing all of the work logs for other users.

 

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.

 

1. Verify that time tracking is enabled within JIRA

For JIRA users to log work in Tempo Timesheets, time tracking must be ON in JIRA.

Verify your JIRA Time Tracking settings by completing the following steps:

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select Issues.
  3. On the left menu bar, locate the Issue Features section, and select Time tracking.
  4. Review your current settings, ensuring that time tracking is enabled and your time tracking provider is Tempo Timesheets

 

2. Ensure that you have enabled the Tempo Administrator permission

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select System.
  3. Scroll down and click on Global Permissions under Security on the left-hand menu.
  4. Scroll down to the end of the page and locate Add Permission.

  6. Select the appropriate group from the Group menu. For the purposes of your administrator setup, you should select 'administrators'.
  7. Click Add.

3. Grant ‘Log Work for Others’ permission to users

The 'Log Work for Others' permission allows one user to log work for another user. You might want to grant this permission to manager or team leads who need to log work for absent or busy team members. You can also grant this permission separately for each project.

4. Grant ‘View All Worklogs’ permission to users

The 'View All Worklogs' permission allows one user to see the work logs for all other users. You might want to grant this permission to managers or team leads who need to view all workloads for their team. You can also grant this permission separately for each project.

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select Issues.
  3. Scroll down to Permission schemes.
