To plan a work select a date and a time period you spent on an issue. Click the left mouse button in a date column, opposite the time when you started to work and drag the mouse to select the appropriate time frame. The "Planning and Log Work" dialog appears when you release the button. The "Start/End Time", "Time Planned" and "Start Date" fields are filled based on your selection. You may need to switch to planning mode by clicking "Planning" button at the right side of the dialog header.
Planning can be done on issue or project levels. When the cursor is in the "Issue Key" or "Project Key" field, start typing a key of the issue/project you want to report time on or a word from the "Issue Summary" or "Project Name" fields. An auto-complete text appears below the field while you type. Just select the issue or project you want to plan for. Fill the "Work Description" and press the "Log" button.
Tick on "Repeat" check box to automatically create recurring planning records. Weekends are skipped unless "Include Weekends" is ticket. You can plan up to 90 days ahead.
By checking "Distribute Total Time" you can create planning entries based on predefined time or issue estimations. Click "Set to Estimate" to populate issue remaining estimate. Weekends are skipped unless "Include Weekends" is ticket. You can distribute up to 500 hours.
When distributing the Total Time the End Date is re-calculated, and vice versa, when planning based on Start/End dates the Total Time is re-calculated.
