You can find tons of apps in the Marketplace which may fit your needs

Maybe I am biased but you should give Teamboard Timeplanner a try, it is a new and well made app.
Not only time tracking, timesheets Timeplanner provides beatiful resource scheduler, profile + skills management, client management, cost tracker and very interactive time & cost reports

Check the demo video here

thanks a lot

Hi @Cato Kad 

If you need your users to keep track of time on issues and you are in control, Jira has a simple built-in solution for entering work logs. For detailed reporting based on that, I recommend TEMPO Timesheets or Clockwork. My team enjoys using these products.

You can also try to track the time that the task has been in a certain status ("To Do" "In Process" "Done").

Time in Status for Jira Cloud add-on developed by my SaaSJet team helps to monitor time for any combination of issue attributes (e.g., assignee time per status, time in status per assignee, compare status time for the whole team). You can get such reports:

- time in status for Jira issues - how long colleagues have been assigned to issues (that's what are you asking for, aren't you?)

- average time has been spent in each state

- date of entry into a status

- transition and status count.

- export to CSV and XLSX files

You can try the trial version or order a demo call. I hope I have helped with my advice.

Hello @Cato Kad ,

I strongly recommend you to give our app - Worklogs Time Tracing and Reports for Jira a try. With Worklogs it is effortless to create a vast range of custom reports and learn from your data. For example, you can easily check how much time is spent by every user or group of users on specific issue types or priorities. You can create a report based on Jira issue fields (including the custom ones) and associated Time Logs.

You can keep track of your daily logs and log Time directly from Worklogs app:

You can also create a bar chart and pie chart report, for example of the Time spent by the users:

You can share your reports by a link or export them to an xls file. 

Hope it helps! In case of any question, please feel free to contact me here. I'll be happy to assist you.

Hello @Cato Kad ,

If you are talking about a case where your users are entering worklogs on issues and you reporting on these worklogs, Jira already contains a simple issue-based worklog entry mechanism. For detailed reporting based on that, I recommend TEMPO Timesheets. I am not related to this app but these guys are very good when it comes to timesheet reporting.


On the other hand, if you are looking for a solution that doesn't require your users to enter worklogs on issues, you can use an app that produces reports based on issue workflows.

Our team at OBSS built Time in Status app for this exact need. It is available for Jira Server, Cloud, and Data Center. 

Time in Status allows you to see how much time each issue spent on each status and on each assignee.

Time in Status has Consolidated Columns feature. This feature allows you to combine the duration for multiple statuses into a single column and exclude unwanted ones. It is perfect to get measurements like Issue Age, Cycle Time, Lead Time, Resolution Time etc.

For all numeric report types, you can calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by the issue fields you select. For example total in-progress time per customer (organization) or average resolution time per week, month, issuetype, request type, etc. The ability to group by parts of dates (year, month, week, day, hour) is particularly useful here since it allows you to compare different time periods or see the trend.


The app calculates its reports using already existing Jira issue histories so when you install the app, you don't need to add anything to your issue workflows and you can get reports on your past issues as well. It supports both Company Managed and Team Managed projects.

Time in Status reports can be accessed through its own reporting page, dashboard gadgets, and issue view screen tabs. All these options can provide both calculated data tables and charts.

And the app has a REST API so you can get the reports from Jira UI or via REST.

Using Time in Status you can:

  • See how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee, user group and also see dates of status transitions.
  • Calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by issue fields you select. (For example, see average InProgress time per project and per issue type.)
  • Export your data as XLS, XLSX, or CSV.
  • Access data via REST API. (for integrations)
  • Visualize data with various chart types.
  • See Time in Status reports on Jira Dashboard gadgets

Hi @Cato Kad 

As an alternative, you can also try out the app we have developed to track time at project , issue and resource level.

Agile Tools : Epic Tree, Links Tree, Time in Status & Worklogs

Generate reports such as:

- Roll up reports for your Issue Hierarchy

- Time in status for Jira issues

- how long colleagues have been assigned to issues

- Group your statuses to define your own Cycle/Lead times

- Track time spent by resources with multiple filters / category / grouping features
