Continuing our commitment to deliver the most comprehensive program and portfolio management solutions for Jira, we’re excited to announce the Tempo Work Logged Column in Structure for Jira Cloud, the first major product integration since Structure joined up with Tempo in December 2021.
What does that mean? It means you can answer the question “How much time and effort are we spending on this project?” in the same views where you organize and manage your project tasks. You can use Timesheets’ data to track project progress by billable hours and more – all within the Structure interface.
What are Timesheets and Structure by Tempo?
Some background on the Structure <> Timesheets integration: Structure by Tempo is a project portfolio management app for Jira that provides a spreadsheet-like view of issues – teams can manage projects, programs, and portfolios in one place, in whatever issue hierarchy they prefer, and group, filter, and sort as they need.
Time-management app Timesheets by Tempo is a business-critical tool not just for tracking time, but for categorizing time spent (such as billable vs non-billable hours) and supporting reporting functions such as invoicing and CAPEX/OPEX reporting.
The new integration combines Stucture’s custom issue hierarchies and real-time project insights with Timesheets’ data on the time logged – and, if applicable, billed – for each project or task.
That means Timesheets users can use Structure to group, filter, and sort time tracking data – including billable hours – by any Jira field, to create any custom report they need.
How to use the Tempo Work Logged column
The new Work Logged column brings two of Tempo’s flagship products closer together. Instead of switching between both solutions to view project status and time-management data separately, users can now simply add a column to their project overviews in Structure to get the complete picture.
One of Structure’s key strengths is that it’s easy to sum up numeric values in projects – and now, users can roll up logged and billable time all the way to their parent issues, allowing users to get project- and portfolio-level time insights alongside issue-level information.
Users can also drill into details with the new Work Logged Column. It allows filtering by user and time period, so users can view logged and billable time for single or multiple users, and get project- and user-level time insights for any time period.
For Timesheets users, this integration unlocks project management and reporting capabilities currently unavailable in the app. With Structure’s flexible issue hierarchy, advanced aggregation, and powerful grouping, sorting, and filtering options, users can roll up numeric values like estimates, story points – and now logged and billable time – from the sub-task level all the way up to the epic, theme, or initiative, depending on one’s hierarchy. Users can also group the issue hierarchy by any Jira or custom field, allowing them to get insights from time data in ways that weren’t possible before.
The new Work Logged Column marks the beginning of continued innovation across the Timesheets, Structure, and other Tempo products. Stay tuned!
