To give a little bit of context, I work on an software development company and we use a project management tool in which we raise tasks (we call them jiras, actually, but nevermind that) that represent work to be done.
When we work on a task, we must log the time we spent working on them, which we call "log work" or "log hours" (is the latter correct?).
Is the usage of against correct in this sentence?: "Log hours against a task"
My intuition (though English is not my first language) says that the right way to say that would be: "Log work on a task".
But working here I've seen so many weird usages of against (we work with teams from other countries, and the Pakistani are the ones that use against the most) that I'm not sure if it's just incorrect or I just don't know this usage.
