More Powerful and Custom Time Reports Available in Tempo Cloud for JIRA

Tempo CloudRead in 3 minutes

In our previous posts, we’ve covered the introduction of the new Tempo Cloud and its new feature — My Work. This week, let’s take a look at the reporting feature in Tempo.

Our cloud version of Tempo has gone through a complete makeover lately. With this new feature, the time reports are now more powerful than ever and offer more customization for users.

Since the release of the new time reports, we’ve seen teams reporting on time spent in details. For instance:

  • Customer projects
  • Different teams
  • Capex and Opex accounts
  • Internal issues
  • Different users, and
  • JIRA filters (JQL) which produces all your favorite JIRA fields

Required permission for full functioning of the reports: View All Worklogs

The ‘View All Worklogs’ permission allows user to see all worklogs in a project. Grant this permission to managers or team leads who need to view all worklogs for their team. Grant permission separately for each project.

Access custom report from the main menu bar, select Tempo > Reports. Or click on the ‘Reports’ icon on the Tempo Sidebar on the left. You will be presented with report overview page with quick access to six predefined report templates, in addition to the custom report. We chose sensible default values for this first version of the reports overview page, which will be further enhanced in future releases.


Select a range of dates to view and filter and group your data as you see fit

To start with a custom report, select dates by highlighting a period of time from the calendar picker, or type a specific range. You can also select one of the existing timesheet periods to view.


Be sure to try the new reports in Tempo for #JIRA and experience the powerful new functionality at your fingertips

Use the ‘Filter by setting’ to control which worklogs are displayed. The ‘Group by setting’ pivots the results of your report into more detail.


Put the finishing touches on time reports

Choose to display the report in Grid or List view by toggling the button on the right, giving you more display options and additional issue/worklog information. The total hours logged will always be displayed on your top right. When you have all the information you need, you can export your report.

If Tempo Planner is enabled, you can report on plans by toggling between worklogs and plans next to the calendar picker.

What do you want to report on?

Over the past few months, we’ve gotten great feedback on ways we can improve the reports. What are you trying to achieve?

Here are a few examples of time reports you can achieve with Tempo:

The new reports will be available for our server version soon!

    When I enter a filter it just times out and then pops up with an error. Is this a known bug you guys are working on fixing?

      No, that should not happen. Please submit a support request with more details to our helpdesk so our support engineers can investigate your problem further.

    – When do I get the work-log-E-Mails back? I really miss them.
    – The reports are available for export (PDF, CSV, XLS). When do I get the “show for print”-feature back? I really miss it. It was the super fastest way to copy the data to excel, until it’s not possible to filter the export file (90% of a excel-export is not needed by us).
    – The performance since “the big update” is so bad. My “tempo team hours” gadget most of the time doesn’t shows anything, just the funny AJAX-Loader icon. When do I get it back?

      Hi Dirk,

      We’ve just added the Tempo Scheduler back to our cloud platform and we’ll continue to improve it for the next couple of days/weeks.

      Regarding the performance, as Tempo is now a separate system from JIRA, we need to make requests from outside their system and there are multiple requests we must make to get permission to access projects and modify issues. This is a problem we’re working on with Atlassian and we’re hoping to bring in improvements over the next days/weeks. These improvements should make a significant and positive on the performance of our product.

      Please feel free to contact our helpdesk team for more detailed information and further assistance

      Best regards,

    How can I save a Custom Report to avoid reconfiguring it whenever I need it.

    • Bjarki Bjarki says:

      Hi Dorel,

      Unfortunately this is currently not possible on Tempo Cloud for JIRA. But we will be implmenting that feature very soon. Stay tuned to our blog: for the latest updates.
