You can associate hour types with your hour entries. Hour types are labels you use to define your hour entries.
There are two sets of hour types:
Project Specific Hour Types: This is time logged on projects, tasks, and issues. Project-specific hour types can be associated with hour entries anywhere in Adobe Workfront where you can log time for projects, tasks, and issues.
When logging time in Workfront, the project-specific hour types that are available depend on configuration options set at the system, project, and user levels.
The following default project-specific hour types are always available:
The Workfront administrator determines which project-specific hour types are made available, as described in Define hour types and availability for timesheets.
If you enable any project-specific hour types in your Workfront system, at least one project-specific hour type must be enabled on each project in your system. You cannot enable a project-specific hour type at the system level, and have no project-specific hour types available at the project level.
General Hour Types: General hours cannot be associated with a project, task, or issue, and are logged directly into a timesheet. For more information about logging time, see Log time.
