This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to setup Average Time in Status Gadget
The article says: "Do not add the field to any (transition) screens."
What does this mean ? Does it mean:
Both. Don't add it to most screens because the content is not really human readable.
Don't put it on a transition screen because it's also going to be wrong, as you're part way through something that changes the value.
Nic, I have a followup question to your answer that I am hoping you have some ideas. I would like to show the current value of the "time in source status" that is shown on the Transitions Tab (first image) on my Kanban board (second image). I have selected "[CHART] Time in Status" to be displayed on the Kanban cards but only "None" is displayed where I was hoping to see 20h 5m as is the case on the transition screen for the status in question. So either a) it is broken or b) the two fields are in fact not the same.
Ok, these are different things, despite the name.
I'd use a scripted field to expose it, but it could get very complex as status doesn't necessarily map directly on to columns (a column could contain more than one status, so you're into adding up time in several status then, and it won't be easy to do on the fly either)
The closest you've got is the dots for "time in column". I'd think about hacking the css to make that more prominent maybe.
