Time tracking in workflow

Answered

Hello,

is possible to work with time tracking in YT workflows? I want to notify every developer who did not add time tracking record in previous day, but I did not find anything about how to work with this in your workflow documentation.

Thanks.

Hello Adam, thank you for your question.

At the moment  you can't work with work items in workflows, that's true. Please feel free to vote for the feature request here: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JT-22740

I can only suggest the following workaround:

1) Create a special custom field and store there the yesterday's Spent Time value. You can do it with a separate scheduled rule which will update this field every day at the specified time.

2) Create another scheduled rule which will iterate through the 'In Progress' issues in the evening (for example), compare the yesterday's Spent Time with the current Spent Time values, and send notifications to the Assignee when they are the same.

NB: there are no methods for period fields in workflow at the moment, but you can use the following workaround methods: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JT-38783
