Date Granularity

Enhancing Precision with Date-Type Fields and Date Granularity Options in Jira

Performance Objectives: Charts for Jira provides support for five distinct field types, each determining the field’s usability within the app as either a measurable metric, a display field, or both. These field types include Number, Date, Time, Text, and User.

Date-type fields offer exceptional versatility by being selectable for ‘Display By,’ ‘Group by,’ and ‘Stacked By’ options, allowing users to present data at varying levels of detail and granularity:

  • by Hour
  • by Day
  • by Week
  • by Month
  • by Quarter
  • by Year

Leveraging Percent Change Indicator with Jira Date-Type Fields in Tiles View

When you choose to see your Jira data in Tiles View, our Performance Objectives app provides additional insights for better analysis. All date-type fields available and selected for “Display by” (or the x-axis of your chart) include a percent change indicator. This indicator uses the first date segment displayed on the chart as the starting point for its calculation, and each subsequent value shows the change from the previous one.

The percent change indicator facilitates trend identification, performance tracking, and benchmarking by visually representing relative increases or decreases from a baseline. This feature enables quick assessment of performance changes over time, aiding in the identification of trends and deviations from established benchmarks, thus supporting data-driven decision-making.

If you’re interested in exploring different field types and metrics supported by the app, please consult our Configuration Overview. To discover more features, you can browse the User Guide. If you’d like to schedule a demo, you can do so from our customer portal.
