Issues and Time Reporting Periods

To create any type of Time in Status for Jira Cloud report, you need to set two types of dates:

  1. Issues period – for issue list selection.

E.g., You want to get data for issues Resolved last week.

2. Time reporting period – for data calculation.

E.g., You want to get a report for the last week only, and it doesn't matter when issues have been created or resolved.

*If you haven't set it, it will calculate the time data for the whole period (option Any date - selected by default).

1. Issues period

Choose the Created, Updated, or Resolved item from the drop-down menu to filter the list of issues.

By clicking Any dates, you’ll get 2 calendars displayed on a screen.

  • Select the dates for the filtered issues from the “Issues period ” calendar. It’s marked with a yellow color. So, you’ll get a sample of issues that have been created/updated/resolved during the chosen period.


2. Time reporting period

The time reporting option allows you to select the required date range for any report calculation.

It works to cut away the undesirable parts – the dates before and after the chosen period, in our case. Thus, you'll get the time calculated only for a specific date limit.

  • Set a date or date ranges (start/end dates) for data calculation from the “Time reporting period ” calendar. The color of a marker is blue. You can crop all unnecessary dates here.

Sprint period

If you filter by Sprint, the date range options will be disabled. Issues period and Time reporting period will match the Sprint scope.

To configure the time reporting (trim) option in Time in Status for Jira Cloud Gadget, check out the Gadget section.
