How to calculate data with Issues and Time Reporting (trim) Periods?

Let's find out what data you’ll get when you choose dates for Issues and Time Reporting Periods.

Case 1. You configure the report and set different date ranges:

  1. Issues Period: With issues created from the 1st of January to the 1st of September.



2. Trim history: With issues trimmed (the time calculated for a specific date limit) from the 1st of June to the 1st of September.

As result, you’ll get on the grid issues created between Jan, 1 - Sep,1, but time values in columns will be calculated between Jun,1 - Sep, 1. The time from January to June will be trimmed (cropped) and not presented in the report.

Case 2. The same settings as in Case 1. You’ve received data on an issue where only one status (Resolved) is calculated, other statuses have no values.

Explanation: This issue has entered Resolved status on May, 29 and is still there. However, as you set trimmed period between Jun,1 - Sep, 1, a Resolved status has been calculated. Other statuses which issue has entered before June, are not included in the sample and accordingly receive empty values in columns.

Recommendation: To get values for all task statuses for the period from Jan, 1 to Sep, 1, you need to select ‘Any date’ as a Time reporting (trimmed) period.

  • Issue period


  • Trim history

Time in Status add-on offers you two options (calenders) to set date ranges for reports.

  1. Issues period – to choose dates and get a list of issues that have been created/updated/resolved during the chosen period.

  2. Time reporting period – to select the required date range and cut away dates before and after the chosen period.
