Ability to use the Actual Time field in a rule trigger

Hi - We’d love to be able to add a rule that unless you have filled in the actual time field you can not complete a task. At the moment it doesn’t seem possible to add the time-tracking field into a rule. Is this a possibility.

Hi @Georgina_Labelle,

You’re correct, it’s not currently available in rule triggers.

I moved your post to the Product Feedback forum section to let you and others vote for this feature.

I’d also like to use “Actual time” as a rule trigger to send a slack message to keep the project manager aware if a project is taking longer than expected.

I’d love to use it as a trigger to change Custom Field Status to “In Progress” once Actual Time timer is started.


Yes please!!

I wanted to second also. I would have a great use if a rule trigger was possible for time-tracking field.

Thank you!

I’d love to use Actual Time as a condition when building rules. For example, if someone checks off a task but Actual Time is empty, the rule would post a comment reminding the person to add their time to the task.
