πŸ”‘ Unlock team productivity with Time in Status for Jira Cloud πŸ”‘

Let's say you work in a software development team that uses Jira to manage your projects. You've recently noticed that some issues seem to be getting stuck in the "In Progress" status for longer than usual, and you're not sure why. You want to identify where the bottleneck is and improve your team's workflow. 

In this case, you could use Time in Status for Jira Cloud. Our add-on helps teams track how much time issues spend in each status. It offers a range of features that make it easy to track progress and optimize workflow, including real-time notifications, customizable reports, and data visualization tools. One of the key report for this aim is a Transition Count report. 

The Transition Count report is useful for several reasons: 

  • provides teams with valuable insights into their workflow
  • tracking the progress of an issue
  • tracking team performance
  • identify areas where they are getting stuck or where there is a bottleneck
  • identify areas where they can improve and make adjustments to their workflow.
  • teams can get a better idea of how much work has been done on that issue

With this information, you can identify which issues are causing the bottleneck and work with your team to find a solution. For example, you may find that some issues are blocked by dependencies or require more resources, or that certain team members are overwhelmed with work. By addressing these issues, you can optimize your team's workflow and reduce cycle times.

How to set up this report?

  1. Choose the Transition Count report c441a357-8f3e-4571-af00-fd2ae246faa0.png

  2.  Filter by the category you need.
  3. Choose the date ranges for the data calculation;6dcab46a-c0de-4d94-b297-d23e85da76e9.png
  4. Choose the time format type that will be represented on the grid;


  5. Get the transition count data on the grid as it’s shown below.

    For example, the task was in the To-Do status, then moved to the In Progress status. So, the transition count between To-Do and In Progress statuses is 1. Then the task moved to other statuses and after a while, the task returned to the To-Do status and then moved back to In progress. So the transition count between To Do and In Progress statuses is 2.


  6. The calculation of the report on the Chart view occurs according to the selected period. The transition count report calculates the number of transitions between statuses for the tasks in the chosen period.

    For example - on Monday 4 tasks from 6 have had To Do -> in progress transitions for 2, 3, 4 and 4 times. So, the transition count for To Do -> In Progress on Monday is 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 = 13

I like the spiffy icon in the corner! πŸ™‚

I used Time in Status for on-premise Jira instances and liked the simplicity - and hidden power - of the add-on.
