Interface issues with time logging (Bug #235)

I was wondering about several changes in time logging interfaces.
Here is a few:

  • Add the "Date" field to the Issue update screen, in "Log time" fieldset, so we can remove the "Time entries" link and view
  • Move the "Spent time" view to the ticket details in a sub-section like "Related issues" and "Subtasks"

Suggestions are welcome.

I've created a branch to work on this issue at:

I've already commited the addition of spent_on field to "Log time" fieldset, but didn't remove the link and view yet.

I'm fine with adding the spent_on field to the section on the issue update form.

I don't want to remove the Spent Time or Log Time links or views. Those are used in other places and need to be there (e.g. editing a time entry).

  • Category changed from User interface to Time entries

I was trying to make the block on my-page block editable ( and if there is an editable list in the issue description, we may not need the entire view for editing, just form partials.

Another point, that may be a little off topic, is to add a possibility to create an activity with estimated time and let people log time in that activity, so we can see differences in planned and real time used.

I like the patch, but I am very much opposed to removing the "Spent time" view, we use that functionality extensively (and have extended it a lot). Time reporting is a very broad subject and having a separate view for this is a-good-thing™ IMHO.
