JIRA Tempo planning and plan changes statistics


Let me describe a scenario and i would like to tell me what's the best way to accomplish this with tempo timesheets (if possible at all).

We often plan time for the coming weeks, and it's very common for these plans to change, and finally work on something different, unplanned, or planned for another day at a later time. As a result a lot of planned hours remain "empty" without a worklog, and new plans are created for the same issues.

How can we measure the severity of this "change of plans" situation?
- The amount of planned time without a worklog (empty)?
- The amount of total planned time in relation to work log per issue, or per project?
- The amount of total planned time in relation to original estimate?
- How many times a plan is edited or deleted for a specific issue?

Should i leave "empty" plans or should i delete them and create new valid plans?

Any advice on this would be really appreciated!

thanks in advance

Hi Nick,

at the moment, there is not really any tool to measure this differences of planned time vs. worked time available in Tempo Timesheets, but you can create a feature request for this in our Atlassian JIRA (https://tempoplugin.jira.com/browse/TT). It is also not possible to see how many times a plan was changed.

You can get information about the number of planned and worked hours in the Report view of a timesheet. Please take a look at (https://tempoplugin.jira.com/wiki/display/TEMPO078/Report+View) for more information on how to show planned and worked hours and how to change the detail level.

If you should leave empty plans or adjust them, might be a question of Company procedures.
It seems more useful to adjust plans as it will give a better overview which user/ Team member will be working on what, which issues are not planned for and who is available to take on work.

Kind regards,
