Stay on Track With Agile Timesheets and Reports

With the recent and upcoming enhancements to the Agile Timesheets and Reports functionality of our Tempo Timesheets add-on for JIRA and JIRA Agile, Scrum teams can browse work and track time on epics, sprints, stories, and JIRA issues (tasks), and even glance at higher-level information regarding your team’s previous and current work.

Our Agile Timesheets provide a good way to manage all Tempo Timesheets worklogs associated with JIRA Agile epics and sprints. The Agile Timesheet can display worklogs from one or more (or all) epics, for both Scrum and Kanban boards. Scrum boards can also be refined down by sprints for easy reference. Agile Timesheets can also be viewed for JIRA issues and worklogs, allowing you to get the nitty gritty details.


Other visible data on these timesheets include original estimated hours to be worked, the remaining estimated hours, and actual worked hours, allowing team leads to keep track of their teamwork in real-time and help plan for the future. Live links take you quickly back to your agile board or to your Tempo Teams page for more information about your Scrum team, team member capacity and commitment, and overall project data.


Our Agile Reports, beginning with our upcoming Tempo Timesheets 7.10 release and beyond, will enable team leads to manage the progress of team efforts based on a selected agile board, project, release, epic, or sprint, including:

  • Viewing the current status of estimated versus actual  team efforts
  • Determining the actual versus remaining efforts of each team member in the current sprints and epics
  • Quickly accessing estimated versus actual efforts for past sprints and epics
  • Reporting on the progress of each item in a release
  • Filtering teamwork reports by a specific time-frame
  • Visualizing the efforts and progress of an agile board in real-time
  • Grouping and filtering worklog information based on attributes and custom attributes
  • Filtering time spent on agile boards by project for overall project and program planning

Tempo’s recently added Agile Reports take timesheet reports one step further, enabling teams to better visualize graphically the distribution of team efforts based on selected criteria for both current and past work, helping team leads prioritize team work to better reach your goals. While our Tempo Planner add-on places particular emphasis on visualizing, grouping, and managing future work, these enhancements to Tempo Timesheets address current and past work grouping, filtering, and comparisons, solving a number of challenges faced by our JIRA Agile and Tempo Timesheets users.


A host of new time tracking data and reporting tools have been made available or will soon be released for our Tempo Timesheets add-on, allowing customers to pivot data and align your reports, alleviating your reliance on spreadsheets and other external tools. Manage your data in one centralized place, and gain peace of mind with Tempo’s solutions.

  1. Is there any intend to allow plug-ins and other automation (jira utilities suite, scripting) to write into the timesheet fields? I would like to automate the holiday approval flow within the company by copying dates from two custom fields into Tempo Timesheet fields on a designated issue for holiday where the requester has read only option.

    I haven’t been able to find a good comparison of the pros and cons of using Timesheets through the Agile board vs. Setting up teams in Tempo.

    Can anyone provide the pros and cons of both? How am I limited by only using Timesheets through the Agile board? Our company has no need to plan time, approve timesheets, etc. We just need to be able to track time for a project, or project broken down by component.

      Hi Josh,

      Using just the Agile Timesheets is only a small part of the experience which Tempo Timesheets has to offer. The other parts of Tempo Timesheets give you the added benefit of reports, worklog calendar, different views of timesheets (User, Project, Team, Account, Advanced, Issue), and much more.

      I strongly recommend that you attend a introductory Tempo Timesheets webinar here or view a introduction video to Tempo Timesheets so you can get to know what Tempo Timesheets has to offer your organization.

      If you need any additional assistance please feel free submit a support request and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible

      Hope this helps

      Best regards,
