Time by Resource in Scrum

Sophia Skinner August 24, 2023

Hello Atlassian community, 

Is there a way I can track which epics my team is spending the most time on per sprint? I want to get a sense for if the priorities we set are reflected in the work we actually perform throughout the week. Thanks!

@Sophia Skinner -

By default, Scrum process is typically used when dealing with Jira Software Application project as JSM uses queue mgmt/SLA mgmt to track issues.

Anyhow in general, out of the box one will need to enforce time tracking and log works on issues within a sprint's tasks.  If it is not enforced, then you can only use issue creation date and issue resolved date to generate the data that you want to captured.

You may want to visit Atlassian Marketplace for paid add-ons for time reporting reports further -

Hope this helps.

Best, Joseph Chung Yin

If you don't mind using third-party add-ons, as suggested above, you will find a lot of solutions for reports on the Marketplace. I suggest you try SLA Time and Report for Jira or Time in Status for Jira apps (developed by the company where I work).

The first one is more suitable for full management of SLA and has 4 different reports.
The second one provides more reports for analyzing time spent on tasks, although it does not have settings for SLA.
Both have a 30-day trial period and for Cloud, they are free for up to 10 users. Try them!

Hi @Sophia Skinner

just to add to @Joseph Chung Yin's great answer, if I may provide a concrete app recommendation, have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting

With these, you can easily build time tracking reports like the following, based on pretty much any criteria you can think of:


This is showing the time spent per team, but you can group by any of your issue field(s), and also based on any issue hierarchy. As every JXL sheet is, ultimately, powered by a JQL statement, you can also view issues across projects, with projects of any project type (JSW, JSM, JWM, etc.).

(As already mentioned, there may be other apps that can help with this, too. You may already know that you can trial any app for free for 1 month, and depending on the size of your size, it may be free forever. So if an app is an option for your, perhaps try a few and see which works best for you.)

Any questions just let me know,
