Atlassian Marketplace offers dozens of add-ons for Jira, the choice is really huge if somebody looks for additional functionalities for Atlassian products. But it’s even bigger in Worklogs plugins. Unfortunately, basic Jira doesn’t have any tool or type of client support to track time and generate reports of working hours. Happily, vendors are filling up this gap by offering their products – plugins. Some of them are free, but most cost just a few dollars.
If you’re a non-profit or open-source organization, you can apply for Community Licence or Open-Source Cloud Subscription which give you Atlassian products for free (cloud is free for open-source, but for non-profit it’s discounted 75%)
If you already have these, you can download every Marketplace add-on for free. How to do that you can learn in that article:
