Confirm implications of "discovery" task time


Level 1

I just noticed that there are "time types" when logging time to a task, and the default I've been logging time under is "discovery" on tasks (see screenshot). Please confirm whether we can change this default and the implications of logging time under this time type - i want to verify it is not going to impact our reporting.

This is a configuration that is bespoke to your Workfront instance. I recommend reaching out to your system administrator who will be able to best advise why time types have been configured like this and will also be able to set a different default time type if necessary.

Can you confirm the reporting implications with selecting the "discovery" option?
