Export a project to Word

Greetings brains trust,

Please only provide suggestions/answers if they apply to Work Management-Cloud which is the only product we have.

Question - I was wondering if anyone is aware of a way to easily export a Word version of a Project report in the same/similar format as when you do it for an Task where it could list the project details as well as a list of the Tasks (and maybe sub tasks), under that project?

Similar to what you get visually here when you export to word for a Task as below...



Any ideas or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

If you create a filter of all the issues you would like to export (limited to 1000) you can click on the export button in the upper right hand side and it will export the issues in Word format like you attached above for all the issues.

I did see that but it exports each task individually in one big word document.

Ideally what I'd like to get is a project summary with the tasks/subtasks listed  as line items but at a project level in the same style as when you export a Task with sub-tasks.


  • first section of the export lists the project settings
  • Section sections shows a collective of the estimates/time spent etc
  • third section lists tasks and sub-tasks

We're often asked to conduct a project report with each tasks/subtask status to non-users of jira and it'd be good to be able to print a word doc at Project level as a summary of the whole project. Currently we're transposing all this summary data into a separate document which is very time consuming

@Dave W The only thing I can think of is to make a Confluence report with Jira filters that could summarize the information in the format you are interested in and then you could export it to PDF. 

If you do not have Confluence then you could look at a reporting app like easybi to construct a report that could be exported.

There is nothing like what you are asking for in the delivered application.
