Boost Productivity with Enhanced Jira Reporting

|

As a Manager within an organization using Jira as a Project Management tool, enhanced Jira reporting helps you to clearly see the progress teams are achieving, and where bottlenecks are forming in every project. This in turn helps you to prioritize the tasks your teams need to focus on.

Enhanced Jira reporting visualization leads to better-organized teams, which leads to improved productivity, faster delivery, and better results. Jira reports also help keep your teams motivated by helping them share their successes, and learn from their failures.

It’s not always that simple though, are you finding the task of accessing data and producing Jira reports tedious? Do you find that the reports you are currently producing don’t accurately represent up-to-date statuses of your projects? Do you wonder why there is the need to export your data to another program to produce your reports, and why each team is using a different tool? Do you struggle to make the reports produced more impactful? Do you need to manually copy filters or send Jira Query Language to get the charts to look right and consistent between teams?

Wouldn’t it be great to share your reports with non-Jira users via a common platform such as Confluence without having to worry about permissions?

There are several add-ons for Jira reporting that give you more powerful options, but if you want a solution that doesn’t require training, or coding, yet has enough features to keep all your teams’ reporting within Jira Dashboards. Custom Charts for Jira – Reports by Old Street, an Atlassian Staff Pick from a top Atlassian Marketplace Vendor. 

Custom Charts for Jira provides chart components pulled directly from Jira with features not possible in native Jira Dashboards or Confluence pages out of the box, offering significant benefits. For example, the ability to merge segments (with or without using JQL) and chart any field by time, issue count, or story points is massively beneficial when tracking progress.

Custom Charts offer a far simpler and straightforward way to create Jira reports and charts that will convey more meaningful information to your teams. All with an extremely well-built and easy to use interface. 

Features include:

  • The ability to choose segment colors to remain on brand, to maintain consistency across charts, and more in a few clicks, without any need for coding. 
  • Use Custom Jira Query Language (JQL), saved filters, or use the simple click and drag interface to create any chart
  • Drag and Drop to reorder segments, bars, or tables
  • Merge segments or hide segments to simplify your charts and make them less cluttered
  • Save and share configurations and filters
  • Integrates with any Advanced JQL searches, and calculated custom fields
  • Chart 2-dimensional tables and charts by Story points, Issues or Time Spent

Explore how the apps work with our Interactive App Playground which will allow you to try out creating different types of charts using available data from our website 

Personalize those charts and see how easy it is to use our tools. Check out the playground here:

Chris Cooke CEO Old Street Solutions

Although Chris was always pretty good at rugby (being in his words “f***ing massive”) he was much more comfortable hanging out with computers than jocks. After growing up watching his dad work far too hard, he decided he wanted to have his own business and do things differently.

Chris founded three successful startups in Thailand: one was a Scuba Diving School/ Eco-Tourism company dedicated to saving turtles. Once he’d saved enough turtles, he moved back to the UK to pursue his dreams in software.

It was while working for the Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner Clearvision that Chris met Jacek. The two decided there was a gap in the market for easier-to-use Atlassian tools for Jira and Confluence users who don’t have a clue how to code (of which there are many).

“If we’re not making mistakes, we’re not trying hard enough.”
