User Settings

To open the settings you need to click the User settings menu item.

Once you open the User Settings dialog for the first time, you’ll see the default settings that were configured by your Jira administrator.

You can change the default settings, at any time, according to your preferences.


The settings Long Events Display in Time View and Default Event Minutes require some further explanation to be understood and easily adjusted if needed.

If Long Events Display in Time View is set to All-day area then in time view mode events longer than All-Day Event Hours are displayed in the all-day section.

For instance, All-Day Event Hours is 8h and Long Events Display in Time View is set to All-day area. As result, the event that starts on 10:00am and ends on 6:00pm will be shown in All-Day area, in Time view.

In case you prefer the event above to be displayed in time grid instead of all-day area, you would have to change your User settings and set Long Events Display in Time View to Time grid.


Default Event Minutes settings define the duration for the event that has no initial times provided. For instance, you work in a monthly mode. You click on a calendar and create an event. The start time for the event will be based on your settings for Start Hours:

The Default Event Minutes will pre-define the values for End time and Time Spent. Of course, you can change them if needed.

Please note that if Default Event Minutes equals to All-Day Event Hours, then in Time grid view an event with the default event duration will be automatically shown in All-Day area, assuming that Long Events Display in Time View is set to All-day area.

Feel free to experiment with your User settings to find the variations that suit your needs the best.
