Tempo how to Summarize hours on epics


is there any way in tempo reports or export, to summarize hours spend on story's belonging to an epic and thereby the epic "holds" the total number of hours?

Oh yes i'm quite aware of that possibility, but it's realy not an option. So i'm looking forward for youre soloution

No problem. Care to tell me why it is not an option? It would be great to get the feedback.

Hi, I'm new to Jira and Tempo, so forgive me it this function now exists as I appreciate that this request is quite dated now. Like Bjarne has outlined above-

we too also use Epics as placeholders for tasks/story's belonging to specific stakeholders. It would be great if tempo had some sort report or export option, that would summarize hours spent on stories belonging to an Epic?

I realise that this question was posted some time ago now.. You mentioned that the team were adding a lot of more reporting functionality in this area in upcoming versions. Does this functionality now exist? Thanks

For Us is quite important too. Is there any way to group tempo report by epics? 


There is no nice way to do this at the moment. But you can create a filter that returns the Epic stories and view that filter in Tempo Timesheets.

IS there any change this will be implemented in a future release?

we use epics as placeholders for tasks/story's belonging to specific customer, we track time to evaluate time spent, cost towards the original estiamte. And This would be more than nice if we could do that within a standard report

Actually I am looking into solutions to this now but it is still in the design phase.

However, I hope you are aware that Tempo comes with a Account Custom Field that can be used to represent customers and has built in reports for this purpose. So you might want to have a look at that to get this report today. You can still continue to use epics and simply add the customer association to the issues.

It will be nice if there is such a feature implemented soon. It is very inconvenient that there is no easy way to see the time spent on an Epic now, and I need to use Tempo stats per filter.

Hi Ivaulo, you can use the Agile Timesheet filtered by epic to see total hours per epic. We are adding a lot of more reporting functionality in this area in upcoming versions.

today we have appox. 100 accounts and still growing, and that is a problem by itself, since we can't sort the billingkey dropdown by name instead of the number and thereby make it easy for the ones who create issues. But back to the case here, we have arround 60 epics that we would like to report statistics on a monthly basis (comes with the invoice) so togehter with the already excisting accounts it would be a mess for everyone

So I assume you are mapping the 100 accounts always to the same projects or you define them to be global? Normally we have only a handful of accounts per project so the dropdown is usually not a problem for us. However, we are working on improving the dropdown for extreme cases.
