In this article, we will explore how to exclude weekends step-by-step on the Jira work panel using the calendar feature in Time Between Statuses by SaaSJet.

Jira's Work Panel is a feature that displays a summary of the current project status. The Work Panel provides users with a quick overview of the and helps them keep track of important deadlines. However, one problem that many Jira users face is the inclusion of weekends in the Work Panel. This can make it difficult to accurately track deadlines and progress, especially when working on time-sensitive projects.

Fortunately, SaaSJet has developed a solution to this - Time Between Statuses. Time Between Statuses is that enables users to track the time taken to move between different project statuses. The add-on comes with a calendar feature that allows users to exclude weekends when calculating the time between statuses.

Also with Time Between Statuses, you can:

  • Monitor the progress of your tasks and workflows
  • Identify bottlenecks and delays in your processes
  • Analyze the performance of your team and individual team members
  • Improve the accuracy of your project planning and estimation
  • Generate reports and visualizations to share with stakeholders


Find the installed Time Between Statuses add-on below the Jira settings menu and click it to open.


Click a gear in the top right corner to open the configuration manager.


1. Manage Work Schedule 

Click Work Schedule in the configuration manager to manage your work schedules for your team. 


There you can choose: working days, time zone, working hours, breaks and holidays.

The time that issues have spent between statuses will be calculated according to your work schedule settings.

2. Add new statuses group

While you are in the configuration manager, you may add statuses groups as well.


After entering the status group manager, you can create and manage the group.

First, add a name to your group and select a project to monitor.5.png

Then, select statuses on which the timer should start and stop calculation.

You can also choose a status on which the timer should be on pause.


After you have customized your calculation preferences, set the Warning and Critical time limits.


This feature will help you to get the visual color tagging on issues to notify when the time limits have been exceeded:

Warning time limit - yellow

Critical time limit - red


3. Choose a Time Format

The TimeFormat option lets you select the time format of status duration: h:m (hours:minutes), HM (Hours, Minutes), M (Minutes) or Decimal Hours.


If you're looking for a way to optimize your Jira workflows, then Time Between Statuses is definitely worth checking out.

We are delighted to offer you a 30-day trial of Time Between Statuses, providing you with the opportunity to test the software's features and benefits. Additionally, our add-on is free up to 10 users, enabling you to assess its effectiveness in your service processes.
