Export 'timespent' field to .csv results in numeric value

Scott_Theus Community Leader Sep 13, 2019

I am exporting a set of issues from a filter into a .csv file, In Jira the 'timespent' filed is  correctly as "4 days, 3 hours," but in the .csv file it shows as "97200."

Does anyone know the formula for converting this to hours?

Hello @Scott_Theus 

I tried an export in my JIRA, and the timespent seems to be in second in the .csv files. In my issue i have 1minute and in my csv i have 60.


You can add a cell with this formula

="cell ref"/86400

And format this cell to time (37:30:55) or whatever you want.

Hope this helps.

Thanks @Mohamed_Benziane I was guessing it was in seconds as well. Your formula got me 90% there, it turns out I forgot that my time tracking settings are using a 6 hour day, not an 8 hour day, so when I converted hours to days it was way off. 

Using a 6 hour day got me the last 10%.
