A More Efficient Tempo Timesheets for More Efficient Teams

A new Tempo team space and module through which team members and stakeholders can now access high-level information about their teams. New Tempo roles and permissions features add greater flexibility, allowing team leads to better manage team resources, plan for future hires, and change roles as team members join and leave the team. Team-related projects and agile boards, including issues, sub-issues, tasks and other work items, are also easily accessible from the new Team space.
An enhanced, modern user interface (UI) redesigned for efficiency, intuition, and visual appeal. The UI improvements focus on Tempo Timesheets’ most widely-used features and functions, so team members can more easily access timesheets and reports, create and edit worklogs, submit timesheets for approval, and visualize overall team capacity and resources.
A new Tempo Worklog Distribution Gadget to visualize the distribution of efforts across any JIRA filter or other designated category, enabling stakeholders to obtain high-level information of time spent, segmented by what makes most sense to them. Users can group Tempo worklog information by JIRA issue, issue type, user, project, or account, with data viewable from customizable timeframes for better organizational management and decision making.
Improved Agile Timesheets to browse worklogs based on any combination of sprint and epic criteria, and roll-up the total effort spent. Team leaders can filter down by epic and create epic timesheets to better manage product releases.
