    You have 2 options how to create work log:

We recommend the second method to create Log Work Time from a task or ticket, which is quicker and more user friendly.

Log Work Time Create/Edit window

Fields contained in the creation/edit window are following:

  • Start Date – select date when the work started.
  • Time Spent – how much time was spent on the ticket or task, use following formats in the field:
  • Tickets or Project Tasks pick list – select for which module are you creating log work.
  • Assigned To – select to which user or group will be this record assigned.
  • Organization – select Organization assigned to this work log.
  • is Billing – check or uncheck if this work log will be used for billing.
  • Description – description of created work log

Quick Create Work Log from Task or Ticket

As mentioned before, this is the fastest way how to create a work log record for tasks or tickets.

For illustration, we will use a Task:

  1. Go to the Task Detail view.
  2. Via button select “Add Log Work Time”.
  3. Quick Create Log Work Time window will pop-up. You can fill the required fields or “Go to full form”.
    Project Task was already filled up as shown below:
    Quick Create Work Log from Task or Ticket

When done, procced via button. The related Log Work you can see in the Task Detail view, also Task “Worked Hours” field was updated based on what you filled up when creating Log Work Time record, see below:

Calculation (SUM) of time worked in Tasks or Tickets modules

Useful feature is counting the worked time total from multiple log work records created.

As an example we can use Task module.

We have created one task called “Issues with Compatibility”, where worked hours field is currently empty. See below:

Calculation (SUM) of time worked in Tasks or Tickets modules


Now, we create 2 log work records with different time spent/worked time:

After creating 2 log work records, related to task “Issues with Compatibility”, the Worked Hours will be updated in the Task, see the result:
