Hi, when you create an automation in Jira Software it shows you a pop-up saying that you saved a certain amount of hours of work due to it so, my question is, Can I consult that information in some section of my project? I'm willing to present that as a metric
At our organization, I append a time to the title of the automation for the amount of time on average I think or know the automation saves doing a specific task per execution. So the beginning of the automation title reads something like (1m), (5m), etc., as shown here:
This allows me to do a relatively quick calculation on the performance insights page based on the number of minutes per execution success, giving me a total number of minutes saved over the specified time.
It would be amazing if the automation rule creation just had a simple field for this and calculated the total time saved automatically, but this at least gives me some quantitative data to prove that Jira Premium and Jira Automations pays for itself multiple times over.
Hope this helps!
Hi @Álvaro Galvez Garrido -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
I do not recall ever seeing the pop-up you describe. And, I would not recommend reporting anything that it shows as time/cost savings. Here is why...
I encourage to you to look at what your teams have automated, why they did it, and what they did before. Then you can forecast any savings.
