Track Your Time in JIRA using the Pomodoro Technique!

I have been a big fan of Atlassian products and the Pomodoro time management technique for a while now. Unfortunately, Atlassian JIRA doesn’t include a timer for its tasks, and I couldn’t find a suitable one for my needs. There were some solutions, but they either didn’t support Pomodoro, or the authors designed them for Atlassian JIRA Server edition. I did use Pomodoneapp.com but didn’t like to leave my JIRA cloud app to use it. So, I ended up creating a plugin and release it to the marketplace for you to use.

You can use the button below to install the plugin to your Atlassian JIRA Cloud app right away. Atlassian reviewed the plugin before releasing it to the public! So, it’s completely safe and ready for your use!

Pomodoro Plugin for JIRA – Features

The timer has two modes. The first mode is the standard timer/count up mode. In this mode, when you start the timer, it continues infinitely until you manually click the stop button to stop/pause the timer. However, in the Pomodoro mode, it will run for 25 minutes (customizable) and alert you to take a short break for 5 minutes (customizable). After the 4th (customizable) Pomodoro is complete, it will take a more extended break for 15 minutes (customizable).

After you stop the timer, the timer will automatically update your worklog with the amount of time you’ve spent on that particular task.

Unlike the other Pomodoro plugins or timer plugins available in JIRA, you can use it entirely for FREE!

How to Use the Plugin

  1. Go to Atlassian Jira Marketplace
  2. Install the plugin.
  3. Adjust the settings.
  4. Go to a JIRA Task.
  5. Start your Pomodoro timer.
