Suggestions for Jira reporting tool

Johnny Wong May 17, 2023
We are pretty fresh in using Jira so would appreciate some suggestions. We would like to show our senior management a template of how it looks like for reporting on Jira. The following parameters would be included and we want to make it a standardised one for all the projects on the way forward.
As we have not been too knowledgeable about the platform yet, we appreciate if you can suggest a few functions/templates from Jira that we can use to provide the progress with these parameters for our reference.
Thank you for your advice.

Hi @Johnny Wong,

My recommended approach is to use Jira dashboards.

The dashboards are very useful because they can be customized and you can have everything centralized in one single page for each team or for the entire project.   There are many apps that offer dashboard gadgets for fulfilling your needs. 

See below some of our blog posts with examples of dashboards and gadgets:

I hope this helps. For questions about these gadgets, please contact 

Thank you,

Danut Manda

Hi @Johnny Wong

just on a meta level, there's actually a number of reporting apps available on the Atlassian Marketplace. If you look for apps, this may be a good starting point. When you browse for apps, I'd recommend to consider an app's ratings and reviews, and certifications like Cloud Fortified. You may already know that you can trial any app for free for 1 month, and depending on the size of your size, it may be free forever - so perhaps try a few and see which works best for you.

To offer a specific recommendation, you may like the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting. With these, you can build powerful reports like the following in just a couple of clicks:


As you can see, this view is fully interactive, meaning that you can work on your issues directly in JXL (but also trigger various operations in Jira, or export your data to CSV or Excel in just a click).

Any questions just let me know,
