Which problem to solve ?

In order to gain time, you need :

  • to log work on different issues from one place,
  • to have quick view of spent time for the last days and "working" issues.

How Minyaa solves this problem ?

Minyaa provides two LogWork gadgets that allow you to log work on multiple issues.


How it works ?

These two LogWork gadgets display Worklogs for a set of issues identified differently.

  • The Worklog Gadget based on Worklogs provides a quick access to issues you have recently worked on, the "Working Issue".
  • The Worklog Gadget based on Filter provides a quick access to issues matching a saved filter.

Both gadgets provide a way to quickly enter worklogs on a list of issues.

The concept of Working Issue comes with Minyaa ... Each time you log some work on an Issue, the Issue is marked as a Working Issue for you account.
