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:
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.
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.
