TimeControl and BrightWork

TimeControl with JIRA

TimeControl integrates directly with JIRA so JIRA users don't have to redo their time entries when completing their timesheet.

TimeControl includes a bi-directional link to the popular task management system JIRA. JIRA is a task management and project management system from Atlassian. It is best known in the Agile project management world and is available from Atlassian as a service or as an on-premise implementation. For developers and other technical users using JIRA now, timesheets can pose a challenge.

JIRA has its own ability to track time per task. If you’ve been assigned a task to complete, you might be expected to open JIRA, show that you’re working on that task and when complete for now, record how much time you’ve spent on it. If you have to open the task three or four times to complete it, then JIRA would keep track of how much time you put in on each session and show a summary of time spent on the task. So far, so good. But now when the end of the week comes, what do you do to complete a timesheet? For many JIRA users, you would now need to open up your standard corporate timesheet, enter all work that was not task related including meetings, travel, overhead, time off and anything else and also copy over the totals from JIRA to the timesheet.

This link between TimeControl and JIRA makes that a thing of the past. TimeControl can bring in the work you’re doing on JIRA including new tasks and assignments and the hours spent on a scheduled basis. TimeControl just brings in the updates so these scheduled links can be done on a very frequent basis, even a few minutes apart. Then in TimeControl your timesheet is updated with all the work you’ve already recorded in JIRA. No need for copying or transposing your work. You can then complete a single timesheet and submit it for approval. TimeControl’s Matrix Approval Process kicks in and both supervisors and project managers can approve the timesheet. Then a link back to JIRA by the project manager updates the JIRA tasks to ensure both systems stay in sync.

For organizations who already have or are considering JIRA, this new link will make integrating TimeControl a cost-effective solution.

The link is included with TimeControl and can be used with JIRA on premise or in the cloud.
