Choose the Worklog Category if applicable.
Add Work description (optional) and click Submit.
→ The system will automatically adjust the Remaining Time for that ticket.
Notice messages of Date fields:

Issues on the timeline
ActivityTimeline dashboard shows the planned schedule based on the Remaining Time estimate JIRA issue field.
Enter and Edit Estimate
The time estimate for a ticket can be specified in JIRA as the Original Time Estimate (automatically copied to the Remaining Estimate field on creation). If the Original Time Estimate is not yet specified or if the current value needs to be changed, ActivityTimeline users can do so directly in the add-on.
To change or set the estimate in ActivityTimeline follow these steps:
Click on the issue card → Click the Estimatebutton.
Enter the new Remaining estimate and Original estimate values.
The system will automatically adjust the remaining hours for that particular ticket.
