I am still trying to find out that the best cloud based JIRA product would allow the following:


I really want to be able to track how long a story sits each status...Functional Review, Development, Testing, etc...I would like to see if after testing it goes back to Development and then for how long?? Essentially, it is tracking a story's progression through the different status's in a Kanban so we can learn from it. Does this application do this or what would be the best app??


Thank you

I am not sure about best apps, but you can have a look at this app:

Yes, thank you very much. I am going to download the app and see how we can use it. 


Thank you!

Great suggestions have seen there but will add the worthy option to the list. With TMetric time tracker, you will get reporting/budgeting/invoicing in one tool plus accurate time tracking in Jira. The integration is easy to set up and works in the background letting you switch between apps easily.

I also use TMetric, super helpful that each time entry contains a backlink to a Jira task

Like Katerina G. likes this

I would recommend a new app in the marketplace TeamBoard Team Resource for Team management and TeamBoard Project Resource for projects and program, they have morden design and rich features and tracking time is one of the core feature they support.

Note: I am working for DevSamurai the maker of the app so my answer maybe biased

I have a free tool that will do what you are looking for. It's called the Enhanced Jira Query Tool. It is a Google Sheets application that leverages the Jira REST API to retrieve data from Jira. It can retrieve any field and its respective properties from Jira. It also has special derived fields not available in Jira such as time in status, cycle/lead time, working time, waiting time, and unplanned work to name a few. You can find the tool along with other free tools I have created on the Agile Creatives Tools page. There is a demo video and usage guide for all the tools. I have also created a training video on Udemy for the Enhanced Jira Query Tool.  Here is a coupon that will allow you to enroll in the course for free for the next 3 days. I hope this helps you both. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello @John Monczewski

I suggest you take a look at the original Time in Status by OBSS. Our app does exactly what you need

  • Our app creates reports on how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee or user group.
  • Number of time each status or transition was used.
  • View durations in days, hours, minutes, etc.
  • Include issue fields in your report.
  • Export data as CSV, XLS or XLSX.
  • Calculate time averages, grouped by multi level issue fields that you select.
  • Define your own business calendars.

We now have Server, Data Center and Cloud options.

Also, as a good alternative, you can try add-on Time in Status for Jira Cloud by SaaSJet. Using it, you will get an opportunity:

- calculate time in the status,

- get average time issues spent in statuses

- monitor time that a particular assignee was assigned to each issue

- save time when every issue entered to each of the statuses for the first time

- generate status and transition count report,

You can view the data from all reports as tables or as charts. Each of them is available for export.

Also, with the help of another add-on Issue History you will be able to see all the changes that happened since the issue had been created and who made them.

Kind regards.
