Description

Time tracking is one of the most hated (and needed) features of project/task management. An elegant way to support easy time tracking is to do time tracking by pressing "Start work" and "Stop work" when working on a ticket (ideally would also been "Pause"). Currently the redmine-user has to write down the time when started working on a ticket, when stopped working and then calculate time spent and finally add this to the redmine ticket.

I currently am using the start/stop functionality in an other product to track my time. An additional effect is, that "live" booking time onto a ticket also helps me to stay focussed on this work (and resist to distractions).

If implementing that, you have to think about parallel tickets being booked time on. If allowed, there has to be a possibility to find all your "current" tickets you are spending time on. If there is only one, you should (maybe in "activity") be able to navigate to this.

Thanks a lot

Bought just "Mastering Redmine" (http://www.redmine.org/news/80): the following plugin seems to provide exactly the desired functionality: https://github.com/martinllanos/redmine_time_tracker

Thanks!

Jan, as I was not able to reopen this issue #14387 (after having set it erroneously to "resolved"), i opened a new one (#14472). now you closed the new one as "duplicate". This is Ok if you reopen #14387.

Thanks

Hello,

I think it would be a good solution if the Spent time is automatically recorded. Is it possible to incorporate this function without a plugin to buy? Redmine 2.3.2
