Time remaining in hours - change request.

Miroslav Senaj (1112) | asked Jan 19 '16, 3:57 a.m.

In RTC there is Time remaining field.
We are required to log time we spend on task in this field.
Hours in day could be specified as custom number of hours. So for example one time we had 6.5 hours for 1 day and other we had 8 hours for 1 day.
It is quite annoying knowing I have spend 4.5 hours on task which specifies 2d of estimated time.
Should I specify 1.4d remaining? Or what is 4.5 hours from 2d if day is 6.5 hours or 7 hours?

Much better solution or at least give us option to log hours we spend on task. I know that I spend 4.5 hours on task so I just log time spend 4.5 hours. I don't need to calculate anything or know how much is 1 day in hours.

It's a Process issue with your organization. Otherwise, from the Eclipse client, you should be able to make this modification:

I don't think your burndown report will be effective anymore though...

So you are saying that in web version its possible to select time spend instead of time remaining?

Just to clarify. To make the change from Time Remaining to Time Spent, you need the Eclipse client. After that, then as people fill out the web, it will now be Time Spent.
