What is the best way to track CapEx vs OpEx spending in Jira Align?

We are still funding projects and are looking at ways to add Capabilities in time tracking so we can have our team members log their time in time tracking.  Is the data in time tracking related to Investment vs Actual reports in Jira Align where you track your teams work by hours and not points?

Hi @Derwin Roland !

To double check, are you using the Time Tracking module of Jira Align, or something else (e.g. Tempo Time)? In terms of Jira Align Time Tracking, unfortunately time entered does not roll up to impact spend totals on the Investment vs Spent report (previously called Investment vs Actuals). The values calculated on the report are based on accepted story points against an costing rate (either blended rate or cost center rate). Check out this help page for more details:

Hope this helps!


Thanks Mark!  After speaking with my local Atlassian architect, he told me the same things how time tracking is its own module and not integrated with the investment vs actuals at this time.
