When working remotely with others from around the world, I constantly had to google what time it was in Vietnam, China, or Ukraine. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to simply see what time it was for them within the Issue ticket.

What it does

This feature is to the right of the ticket under "Current Time". When expanded, you can see the current time for the reporter and assignee. If the current time plugin has been sitting idle, click on "Get Current Time" to update.

How I built it

I used Forge and its UI tools for this simple app.

Challenges I ran into

I didn't have as much freedom such as styling and full control of JavaScript, but for my purpose, Forge UI was good enough and did the job well.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

This was a fairly simple app but the idea is something that could save some time and frustration when working with others from around the world.

What I learned

I learned about some amazing tools and how easy it was to create a Forge app.

What's next for Current Time

When Forge extends their flexibility, I would love to style Current Time better. Also another feature I would love to see is have it update every 10 minutes just in case a user leaves their ticket screen open.
