"Time tracking" on Mantis 2.0 ??

Hi.
I would like to know if "Time tracking" function works correctly in the new version 2.0.
I have seen by default this function is disabled and I used the documentation for activate (https://www.mantisbt.org/manual/admin.p ... cking.html), but I'm not sure if this function is supported officially.

Can anyone give me some information?

Thank you!

Time Tracking should work in Mantis 2.0.x (keep in mind that 2.0.0 stable has not been officially released yet)
Enter a bug report if you should find any issue at http://www.mantisbt.org/bugs

BTW, you should use the manual that comes with Mantis 2.0 (WIP, it's still nearly the same wthat we have for 1.3) .
The link you provided goes to an outdated 1.2.x documentation.

Hi, thanks for your help.

In the documentation of 1.3 version you can reed "This is currently a work in progress." when talk about Time Tracking. https://www.mantisbt.org/docs/master-1. ... metracking and http://www.mantisbt.org/wiki/doku.php/m ... issue:4428

This is what makes me doubt. Does it really work properly?

This is outdated information which needs to be fixed.
http://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=4428 is set to closed/fixed, which means that it has been implemented.

I don't use it myself, but I think it should work.
I found that time tracking has been announced as deprecated http://www.mantisbt.org/blog/?p=443
I am a bit astonished about that, as there are some bigger Mantis installations that use Time Tracking.

I will discuss it with other Mantis developers and will let you know the results.

If Time tracking still deprecated, our company maybe will not use Mantis anymore. It's a shame, we've used this tool for years!

I opened https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=22004 to track the documentation issue.

One of the core developers is very interested in keeping Time Tracking, thus it will hardly be removed in future.

I'm reading the official announcement of MantisBT 2.0 and Victor Boctor wrote about function "Time Tracking".
Seems like is marked how "deprecated".

:?

Seems Victor just copy/pasted old announcement and forgot to remove deprecation of time tracking.
I asked him to change the blog.

Yes! You need activate this option. On your config_inc.php file add this line:

Code: Select all

$g_time_tracking_enabled = ON;

Hello,

I too have enabled the time tracking on 2.1.0. It was indeed as simple as amending the config_inc.php to set $g_time_tracking_enabled = ON;

However, I have a need for two features:
1. ability to set the date of the work (eg. I worked 4 hours YESTERDAY on this issue.)
2. ability to set a custom tracking field (eg. research, dev, testing...)

Is this available as part of the time tracker? or maybe as part of the main application?

Thank you!

I think, you will need to develop a plugin for that.
