I would like to track how many days a story stays in the 'in progress' column before being moved to done. Is there any way to see this data in team managed projects? And is there a way to see it on the card when looking at the board? (so not having to enter the story).
Hi @Alba Charles , this is an often asked question - "how do I report on time in status". You may want to search for the various responses. That said, Jira unfortunately does not provide a solution for this. There are addon solutions, e.g. Time In Status that provide this info. There also is the possibility of creating an ugly solution using Automation and a number of custom fields but I would not recommend personally.
Hi @Alba Charles welcome to the Atlassian Community!
The Days in column (a visual indicator on each card that represents the time spent in the column.) is unfortunately not available for team-managed projects, only in company-managed projects.
Additionally to the recommendations below, you can try Time in Status for Jira Cloud. It generates a Time in Status report and shows the data you need.
Moreover, these days Custom fields will be released. So you will have the ability to see data on the card when looking at the board and entering a story.
This add-on is developed by my SaaSJet team. Please, let me know if you have any questions,
I hope you find it helpful

Hey @Alba Charles -
I see that you have quite a few responses but I wanted to let you know about minware because I don't see this visualization in any of the other posts.
Our ticket flow report helps you understand work-in-progress - you can see the lines below change color when the ticket status is updated and you can see the burn up chart to show the changes over time:
This sounds to me like a one-off investigation but depending on what you are trying to solve for we could potentially set up alerts for tickets that don't change status after [X] days and ping Slack or Email.
Hope this helps and you found what you were looking for!
Hello @Alba Charles
Jira does not offer this out-of-the-box, but the data needed for this report is available in each issue's history.
If you are OK with using a marketplace app for this, our team at OBSS built Time in Status for this exact need. It is available for Jira Server, Cloud, and Data Center.
Time in Status mainly allows you to see how much time each issue spent on each status and on each assignee.
The app has Consolidated Columns feature. This feature allows you to combine the duration for multiple statuses into a single column and exclude unwanted ones. It is the most flexible way to get any measurement you might want. Measurements like Issue Age, Cycle Time, Lead Time, Resolution Time etc.
For all numeric report types, you can calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by the issue fields you select. For example total in-progress time per customer (organization) or average resolution time per sprint, week, month, issuetype, request type, etc. The ability to group by parts of dates (year, month, week, day, hour) or sprints is particularly useful here since it allows you to compare different time periods or see the trend.
The app calculates its reports using already existing Jira issue histories so when you install the app, you don't need to add anything to your issue workflows and you can get reports on your past issues as well. It supports both Company Managed and Team Managed projects.
Time in Status reports can be accessed through its own reporting page, dashboard gadgets, and issue view screen tabs. All these options can provide both calculated data tables and charts.
And the app has a REST API so you can get the reports from Jira UI or via REST.
Using Time in Status you can:
If you would be interested in a mktplace solution, you can try out our plugin,
The add-on provides the time in each status for the entire lifecycle of the issue and you can filter by issue type as well. You can also combine your statuses to define your lead/cycle/resolution time and also extract the transitions history of the issues. The main features of the app are as below
As an alternative, you can try Status Time Reports app developed by our team. It mainly provides reports and gadgets based on how much time passed in each status.
Here is the online demo link, you can see it in action and try without installing the app.
If you are looking for a free solution, you can try the limited version Status Time Free.
Hope it helps.
