I posted a response for this on the fmwebshcool.com forum.

There's more than one way to accomplish the task; in the forum I  
mentioned being able to add a record via a portal, but I don't  
actually do it that way myself.

Having two instances certainly works. One for editing the existing  
ticket and one to add a new record for time tracking is how I handle  
this in my job tracking system. Just don't end up getting real crazy  
and putting instances inside foreach loops that end up driving dozens  
of transactions, because you won't be very happy with the speed.
