Jira reports for Average time spent in status

LinkedIn (9) (1).png

What is the average time your team spent to finish the project? Or how long does it take an assignee to complete a task on average? Let’s figure out what average metrics you can use in Jira.

How to find average time spent with Jira gadgets

With built-in Jira functionality, you can find some gadgets to count average metrics on the dashboard. Use the “Add gadget” button in the dashboard menu.

Average Age Chart 

This bar chart shows the average number of days issues were unresolved. It will help if you need to see a general picture for some project or filter. The list of issues is taken from the number of days you select starting from today. It can be 5, 10, 30, 50, or any other number you type.

How to configure

  1. Select project or filter
  2. Set period as hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly.
  3. Type number of days 
  4. Choose refresh interval (never - every 15 minutes)

As a result, you’ve got a graph like on the screen below:

The average is calculated by dividing the total time by the total number of issues recorded per period.

Average Time in Status gadget 

This chart shows the average time spent in chosen status for all resolved issues for some period.

How to configure

  1. Select project or filter
  2. Choose the status/statuses. You need to pick exactly the ones that belong to the required project. The pitfall is if you have several projects with the same statuses, it will be difficult to find appropriate ones.
  3. Type number of days to set the period.
  4. Choose refresh interval.

The gadget shows only time in status for resolved issues. Also, users face a problem of inaccurate results when the chart returns the issues that were not in the resolved state. Read more here.

What is the average cycle time?

Average cycle time counts the time an issue is marked as “in progress”. For example, it may include “in progress” and “to review” statuses depending on the workflow you use. If you’d like to read more about the cycle and lead time, check out the article with a pizza example.
