Event Sources Tab

The calendar configuration contains event sources. The events are created based on existing event sources.

Short overview

Worklog sources

Worklog sources are used to report and track the work time in Jira. In Work Time Tracking Calendar, having a worklog source, you can create a worklog event.

Each worklog event, the logged time, with other words, is stored in Jira database. Jira API is used to store and retrieve the worklog events. The worklogs created in Jira are transparently displayed in Work Time Tracking Calendar. On the other hand, the work records created via a calendar are shown in Jira, and can be processed by the Jira or third party apps.

The reports can be configured and generated to show the worklogs for a given period, grouped by defined fields.

Planning sources

The planning sources can be used for different kind of planning. Most common usage for a planning source is to plan the work time. Created planning events are stored in Work Time Tracking Calendar database.

The planning event can be created for a particular issue in Jira. For instance, you plan to work on a certain Jira issue, tomorrow. In addition, you can configure the Jira issue fields to be displayed for the planning events. Let’s say, you want to see the due date for the issue you are planning to work on.

The created planning events could be reflected on reports in case you want to compare the planned time versus logged time.

Worklog records can be quickly created based on the planning events.

iCalendar sources

All popular calendar-based apps (e.g. Google Calendar, Outlook, etc.) can export the events via iCalendar format.

The iCalendar sources visualize iCalendar internet based feeds or iCalendar files, in the Work Time Tracking Calendar. This can be useful to compare some external events with the planning or worklog events.

Worklog records can be quickly created based on the iCalendar events.
