time in status

As mentioned above, Time in Status for Jira Cloud provides you with 7 types of reports: Time in Status, Assignee Time, Average Time, Status Entrance Date, Time in Status per Date, Status and Transition Count.

The main goal/purpose of this add-on is so you can generate data about time in status. The following four reports of this application are bringing different information about time in status spending. More about the practical use of each of them read bellow.

Time in Status

Report Time in Status will help you to determine the time duration of each issue when they have been staying in different Jira statuses. With this report, users can monitor the current status of the issue and the total time it has spent in all statuses (and add other custom fields in column manager).

In order to see even more relevant data of Time in Status report, you can choose one of the multi calendars (available for all reports), to have the preside data on the team you want to get more efficient and improve their performance.

The additional feature of this report is that here you can monitor Lead time and Cycle time by setting a Status group.

Assignee Time in Status

Report Assignee Time calculates the time that a particular team member was assigned to the issue. Also, with this report admin can create custom groups. For example, if you have two teams to support L1 and L2, you can customize each column by adding a user group for each team.

Average Time in Status

This report calculates average time issues spent in every status during a specific period of time. Moreover, users can get an average cycle and lead time using the feature of the status group. Average Time in Status report provides you with the opportunity to compare data at different frequencies: hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly. To get the helicopter perspective on average time in Jira status, it is very convenient to view this report as a chart (Pie, Bar Area charts).

Time in Status per Date

The Time in Status per Date report gives you the sum of all times the issue has been in a particular status and date. The main advantage of this report is that you receive an overall picture of the total time spent at all statuses at the chosen time period.

Now let’s dive in the remaining three reports.


Other reports and how to apply them?

These next reports give you a historical view of the workflow steps in Jira. In other words, you can monitor when exactly the issue moves in the work process through time.

Status Entrance Date

Shows the date and time when every issue entered each of the statuses for the first time.

Status and Transition Count

Report Status Count calculates the number of times an issue has been in each status and Transition Count lets you know how many times an issue has gone from status to status. So, these reports will get a more precise perspective when monitoring workflow processes in your projects.

You can export all reports as XLSX or CSV file and dive deeply into analyses for improving your business decisions.

Features you can find only by using our add-on?

Chart Report

You can view and control many-tasking projects at one glance using one of our main features – Charts view (Pie, Bar, and Area).
