Log Time for Multiple Users

I am looking for a very basic feature expanding on the built-in "log time" functionality. We currently use time tracking, but often a manager will need to track hours for some employees or one person will need to log hours for multiple people who are present in a meeting.

  • The feature would simply add a 'multi-select' user drop down into the existing "Log Time" page
  • When selecting multiple users, the number of hours tracked for each user would simply be the value in the 'hours' field.
  • For example (a 1 hour meeting between myself and our graphic designer):
    1. I click "Log Time"
    2. From the user dropdown/multi-select, I select both myself and our designer
    3. I enter "1" in the Hours field
    4. Submit
    5. Now two time entries are entered, 1 hour for myself, and 1 hour for our graphic designer
  • One optional additional piece of functionality (not entirely necessary) would be to limit this functionality to a certain privilege or group. For example, only admins or managers could see the users field on the log time page

I've added a new patch to #3848 which adds the possibility to log time for another user. I'm assigning this ticket to me because I want to work on this feature in the near future (based on that patch).
