Hello! I want to create a Jira Dashboard that shows hours spent on an account or ticket in Jira compared to how many hours were estimated for the account/project. Is there way to do this?
Are you asking how to do this with Tempo, or just Jira in general? If it's just Jira generally, there is a canned Time Tracking Report under the project menu. that shows you actual, estimated, and time remaining.
I don't think that the specific report can show on a dashboard but there are several widgets you can add to your dashboard to show the amount of time that an issue has been in a status or even the elapsed time to resolve an issue for a specific project of filter.
Hi There, I have used eazyBI add-in for this kind of reporting:
1. can deploy reports via JIRA dashboard, and/or Conlfuence
2. I've set up a central cube for project, epic, story, task reporting including estimated hours, consumed, remaining etc, and you can drill down into whatever level you want
A bit of effort to set up initially, but I have all of my reporting across service desk, projects and sales pipeline now here,
Worth a look if you are interested in a comprehensive reporting solution.
Hello! Yes, it is possible to create a Jira Dashboard that shows the hours spent on an account or ticket compared to the estimated hours. Jira provides various features and customization options to help you achieve this. Here's how you can approach it:
Install a time tracking plugin (optional): Jira has built-in time tracking capabilities, but you can enhance the functionality by installing a time tracking plugin like Tempo Timesheets or Clockwork for Jira. These plugins offer additional features and reporting capabilities for tracking time.
Set up time tracking fields: Ensure that your Jira instance has the necessary custom fields to track estimated hours and actual hours spent. If you're using a time tracking plugin, it may have already created these fields for you. Otherwise, you can create custom fields of type "Number" or "Time Tracking" to store the values.
Configure estimation and tracking: Once the fields are in place, make sure your team members estimate and track their time against the appropriate issues in Jira. Encourage them to regularly update the fields with the estimated hours and log time spent as work progresses.
Create a Jira Dashboard: Now it's time to create a dashboard to visualize the hours spent and estimated hours. Here are the steps:
a. Navigate to your Jira Dashboard by clicking on "Dashboards" in the top navigation bar.
b. Click on the "+" button or "Create Dashboard" to create a new dashboard.
c. Give your dashboard a name and optionally select a project and filter to narrow down the data shown on the dashboard.
d. Click on the "Add Gadget" button or the "+" icon on the dashboard to add a new gadget.
e. Search for and select the appropriate gadget, such as "Filter Results," "Two Dimensional Filter Statistics," or "Time Tracking Gadget." These gadgets allow you to visualize and compare time data.
f. Configure the gadget settings to display the estimated hours and hours spent on the account or ticket you want to track. You may need to specify the custom fields you created in step 2 and choose the appropriate filter or project.
g. Customize the dashboard layout by rearranging gadgets and resizing them to your preference.
h. Save the dashboard and share it with relevant stakeholders for visibility.
By following these steps, you can create a Jira Dashboard that shows the hours spent on an account or ticket compared to the estimated hours. This will provide you with valuable insights into the progress of your projects and help you identify any deviations from the initial estimates.
I have no doubts about it, but I think this should be somehow noted😉. We know that AI is prone to errors and mistakes while sounding very authorative.
you might consider using time-tracking apps that in most cases have a customizable report of tracked time on issues.
I can recommend our Clockwork Automated Time Tracking & Timesheets Pro app, which offers you the possibility to review timesheets and create reports that can be configured in various ways using break-down and filtering options.
Using timesheets, you can create a report that shows the original estimate and the remaining estimate.
Please find below the sample of how the timesheet looks like:
If you have any questions you can contact us via our help center.
if I may step in with another plugin suggestion – and yes, full disclosure, I work for this vendor:
With our app Report Builder, we are aiming to offer a more flexible solution than out of the box reports while being easy to set up and use compared to other, more complex apps.
And we do support dashboard gadgets, so every report you create you can add very easily. :)
We would love for you to try it out and give us feedback if it solved your reporting challenge: actonic.de/reporting

Thanks for your consideration! :)
