How to get your team meeting cost in Jira

You could have heard from your managers that meetings are expensive, so the team should avoid unnecessary meetings. 

The experts suggest many techniques to minimize this meeting price. 

The suggestions are indeed very clever:

  • Plan and share agenda with attendees;
  • Involve only essential people;
  • Don’t be late, be short, make meeting notes, and send follow-ups.

Even if you think all advice is being followed, how to make sure your meeting cost has been lifted? 

If your people log work in Jira, you must keep reading this post.


How can you calculate meeting costs?

From what we know, people log meeting times to issues like “team meetings” and “daily stand-ups”, or if the meeting is around some particular occasion, it has its issue in Jira.

 In one of our previous articles, we provided information about How to get the issue cost.

The same principle applies here.

  1. Install Cost Tracker add-on
  2. Set rates for people
  3. Set team permissions in order not to share the sensitive information
  4. Go to the issue where people log their meeting time and activate “Cost Tracker”.

If you are interested to measure the logged time by periods or some particular scope of the issue, please refer to our article Tracking Project Costs in Jira with Cost Tracker .

 In conclusion

Time is money. Not wasting time on meetings with your team to save money is a bad option. They are necessary for synchronization and productive work. Everyone tracks time, but they forget to track the cost of such activities. Try using Cost Tracker for Jira Cloud and our tips, and you will definitely appreciate the benefits of such monitoring.
