Easier reporting: Combine Tempo Timesheets with Epic Sum Up for Jira

From Team '23

Getting everyone on your team to log their time can be a major headache for any manager – the value of having your team’s hours to hand is well-known but getting a hold of the entire picture and then working with it can be daunting.

So what if your project managers and executives were able to better use existing time reporting to save the company money?

This is what companies like Origo in Iceland have done by combining Timesheets with the app Epic Sum Up, which is an app on the Atlassian Marketplace from top German vendor APTIS.

Epic Sum Up for overview and Timesheets for time reports

Epic Sum Up adds progress bars. This makes it easier to see time related to budget in real time from everywhere including agile boards, dashboards, and issue navigator.

Think of it as a series of progress bars that Epic Sum Up adds across Jira. What it does is let you see logged time vs. budget from anywhere, with no need to open reports

For Origo, Epic Sum Up changed the way teams documented hours and reduced changes during a project. The result is greater accuracy in estimation and project budgeting.

Epic Sum Up gives you the overview you need to understand your worklogs and then in one click you can get to your Timesheets reports.

How Epic Sum Up supports Timesheets

Seeing what is happening in an epic, container or project in real-time in one view speeds up how you react to changes in time reporting and estimation

Epic Sum Up defines the context with overviews anyone on your team can understand, then when the time is right, you get to the powerful reports you love with Timesheets in a single click.

No configuration is required. Epic Sum Up adds a real-time overview of everything in an epic, container or project without having to immediately go into reports.

Installing Epic Sum Up allows you to get from the overview of an epic to Tempo reports without having to manually adjust the filter each time. This saves time and avoids manual errors.
