Timer - field configuration

This field is used to display information about the timer. Timer rules are set in the timer configuration. Timer schemas associate projects and issue types with timer configurations. The field displays the result of the associated configuration.

For the field to work, you need to configure the configurations and schemes by which timers will work. Then you need to connect the scheme to a new or existing field.

Schemes and configs only work if they are connected to the field.
