The Average Time in Status report in Jira is a valuable tool for teams to measure their productivity and efficiency in solving problems or tasks. It provides an overview of how long tasks stay in each status in your workflow on average. 

This is a well-known fact. But does everyone know how to use it and understand its usefulness? Does everyone know what a great driver of positive change this report is? Let's discuss it.

To generate reports, we'll use the Time in Status for Jira app (Data Center and Cloud hosting types are available for use).

Average Time in Status Report: Insights 

🟒 Identify bottlenecks. You can determine which workflow stages take the most time by analyzing the average time spent in each status. This will help you understand where bottlenecks occur and where you may need to optimize your processes.

🟒 Increase efficiency. If certain statuses consistently have a high average lead time, it may indicate inefficiencies. This report will help you identify these areas and work to improve them, resulting in shorter turnaround times.

🟒 Set realistic deadlines. Understanding how long tasks typically spend in each status will help you set more accurate and realistic deadlines for future tasks.

🟒 Resource allocation. If some steps take longer than expected, these tasks require more resources or attention. This report can help you make informed decisions about resource allocation.

🟒 Tracking progress over time. You can track your team's performance improvements by comparing this report over different periods. Are tasks moving through the workflow faster than they did six months ago? This report can help you answer that question.

🟒 Comparison between projects or teams. If you manage multiple projects or teams, you can use this report to compare their performance. Are some teams solving problems faster than others? If so, why?

Also, it's worth noting that this report can be shared with stakeholders to provide transparency into the team's work, highlight achievements, or discuss areas for improvement. It can also be used to justify requests for additional resources or changes in workflow
