  • Time is sourced from Jira worklogs.

  • The time imported into the invoice remains unaltered automatically, ensuring the persistence of the invoice. This remains true even if modifications are made to the worklogs within Jira.

  • BillWize enables you to apply an assortment of filters to each invoice, Including filtering by date range, clients , contracts or workers.

Permissions required :

  • Browse projects project permission for the project that the issue is in.

  • If issue-level security is configured, issue-level security permission to view the issue.
