Introducing Tempo Cloud for JIRA

Tempo CloudRead in 4 minutes

A little over a year ago, we began our biggest project yet – to create a new version of Tempo Cloud for JIRA specifically.

We are now ready to reveal what we’ve been working on!

Once upon a time…

The new version was first enabled on the Atlassian Marketplace in late November 2016. Since then, the Tempo Cloud product has improved significantly. Weve started to migrate customers using an earlier version of Tempo Timesheets and Tempo Planner for JIRA Cloud to the new version of Tempo Cloud.

Tempo Timesheets has been available for JIRA Cloud (previously JIRA OnDemand) since 2013, and for JIRA Server since 2009.

Atlassian introduced a new cloud technology, Atlassian Connect, a while ago which allows for more customization and full control over production and deployment for add-ons. As the older cloud technology is being discontinued by Atlassian, we saw this as a great opportunity to rethink our products for the cloud. 

With the Atlassian Connect framework, we can cater better to customer needs. The result of this is the brand new version of Tempo Cloud for JIRA.

What has changed?

The new version of Tempo Cloud for JIRA is built from the ground up with a new UI and scalability that will serve our customers far into the future. In addition to new and improved features, your Tempo data will be stored with Tempo. Tempo is a certified Cloud Security Compliant vendor with Atlassian.

We completely rebuilt our cloud offerings for JIRA to reflect the cloud-first strategy. Learn more about the key themes here. We won’t release new fixes for the current cloud version for JIRA Cloud, instead we are focusing on the new version.

In the process of developing Tempo Cloud, we took the opportunity to re-evaluate Tempo according to customer feedback, breakdown complex features into simple ones, eliminate those that are irrelevant, and focus on easier navigation and usability.   

Join us for a webinar to learn more about the new version of Tempo Cloud. We will be introducing the new UI and features, and answering questions during the session.

Let’s take a look!


Painless time tracking

My work is your place to log work, get a glimpse of whether you are ahead or behind your required hours, see the status of your timesheet, and submit it for a approval.

There are also multiple ways of logging your time to suit individual needs. What do you prefer? The user timesheet, the calendar view, from a JIRA issue view, using the real-time trackers, or the mobile app?

How do I use Tempo to log my work?


Custom reporting for all work in JIRA

Reports is now a separate feature and have been completely revamped to make it easier to use. You can simply select a custom period and choose filters, which allow you to limit your report to just the rows that meet a set of worklogs that you specify e.g. multiple projects, teams, or users. It’s also possible to use grouping options to pivot your data as you see fit.


When your report is ready, you can export it to a CSV file. The worklogs exported are based on the user’s permissions, selected filter, and period.

Resource management and planning for JIRA

If you have Tempo Planner enabled, a Planner option is available. This is where you enter the Tempo Planner features to view your resources and plans.

You can easily switch between team planning and program planning, and navigate between different views.

Centrally manage project teams

Next in the sidebar, we have Teams. Teams enables you to assign issues to teams, manage your teams centrally, designate a team lead, and add different variables to your team for its management, for instance start and end time of a team member joining the team and the team role.

You can also link your teams with JIRA projects and JIRA Boards.

Manage cost centers across your business

Accounts is a convenient way to capture high-level information of all work performed across your business. With distinct accounts, you gain better visibility of all activities and work performed for different cost centers.

You can categorize your account depending on the kind of worklogs that are associated with each account.

You can also access Tempo Administration from the sidebar – if you are a Tempo Admin.

We will finish implementing features in the coming months. During migration, some features will be temporarily unavailable in our new cloud products. We will do everything possible to migrate customers only when the features they use are fully available in the new version.

    When will Temp Budgets be ready for Jira cloud?

    • Bjarki Bjarki says:

      Hi Dan,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.
      Tempo Budgets was initially aiming to be on the cloud for the end of Q1 2017. Unfortunately we had to postpone the offering of Tempo Budgets on the Cloud due to technical issues.

      Having Tempo Budgets available for Cloud is a top priority and we are working closely with Atlassian so we can resume our work to “Cloudify” Tempo Budgets but at the moment we cannot give an ETA on the release. You can follow the progress here, or sign up for our waiting list to get the latest news on the release of JIRA Cloud version of Tempo Budgets for JIRA.

      Hope this helps
