Hi @Tamara DeStefano 

Welcome to the Community!

A while ago, I migrated a small project from to Jira using this article. Although I encountered some problems, I managed to fix them and successfully migrated all the data.

Alternatively, you could export data from to a CSV file and then import it into Jira, as mentioned here. However, I wouldn't recommend this method as it provides a very basic solution and you may need to have too many modifications (in my opinion).

I hope that helps.

Hi @Tamara DeStefano  👋


Here is a useful video about How to migrate to Jira from


I would recommend trying the Time in Status add-on. We are not for migration issues, but a reporting app. We are also available on Monday. There is no function for calculating time in the status, so if you used us there, you can try us in Jira, where we have more opportunities.

With our add-on, you have the power to tailor your team's work schedule, ensuring that the calculation is based solely on productive working hours.

For more in-depth data analysis, you can create reports as pivots. For example, you can look at the percentage of time spent in different statuses.

Dashboards gadgets feature will keep your finger on the pulse and track team productivity in real-time.

For Scrum teams we are also offering Sprint Report feature in Time in Status 

Add-on have 30-day free trial, free up to the 10 users and developed by my team. 

I hope you find this helpful 🚀

Hi @Tamara DeStefano

welcome to the community!

User experience (and, more often than not, some level of change aversion) is a common concern when moving away from It's worth pointing out that Jira has greatly improved many of its experiences over the past couple of years. Another thing to consider is whether apps from the very well-established Atlassian Marketplace can fill in some of the gaps that people may experience as part of their journey.

Just as an example, we have a number of customers who could greatly ease the transition away from Monday with the help of the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira. Put simply, JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet view for your issues that runs within Jira, and operates on Jira issues. There are many other great apps, too, e.g. for providing various dashboard gadgets, etc. etc. 

Just for reference, this is how JXL looks in action:
