Ability to add custom fields onto HOUR object

Avatar

20-09-2022

Description: Allow for adding custom fields onto the Hour object similar to issues, projects, etc.

 

Why is this feature important to you?  We run a lot of reports based on actual hours logged.  We continually run into reporting roadblocks because some hours are logged to tasks and others to issues (in our case requests).  When custom fields are on both the project object and issue object and I'm pulling an hour report, I want to pull the custom field for the item whether an issue or a project. And then show a CHART.

 

How would you like the feature to work:  Allow for custom fields on Hour objects.  Then I create a calculated custom field: if hour type = issue, then enter the issue's custom field "tier level" or if hour type=task, then enter the project's custom field "tier level".  Then an HOUR report & CHART could be generated to show the "tier level" of either the project or the issue.

 

Alternative?  Allow for AND and OR statements in charts.  Maybe this will be resolved in the new reporting canvas????

 

Current Behaviour: cannot create a CHART based on an hour report because the chart can't handle OR statements.
