Orange Tracker (OT) has the ability to track time and log work within individual issues of the project.
- The Estimated field displays the amount of time originally anticipated to solve the issue. This value can be entered before work is logged and cannot be changed once work has been logged.
- The Remaining field displays the amount of time currently anticipated to solve the issue
- The Logged field displays the amount of time logged working on the issue so far
To log your work, Go to More pull-down and select Log Work
When you log time for an issue, the time spent is subtracted from the original estimate, and the resulting value is automatically presented in the remaining estimate.
