Work Log Timer

    Work Log Timer eliminates the need to manually add the time taken to resolve a request in the worklog form. With the Work Log Timer being present in the request details page, the technicians working on a request just have to activate the timer to track the time spent on the request. Once the request is resolved the technician can stop the timer and check the time spent to resolve the request. The time shown can be added to the worklog form from there itself. This feature also helps the admin to know if a technician[s] has started to work on a request.
