Segmentation & Targets

Performance Objectives: Charts for Jira empowers you to segment data from multiple sources, enhancing analysis. Key features include customizable multi data sources, date range segmentation, user type and group filtering, project filters, and granular attribute subdivision (Issue type, Status, Priority, Labels, and Resolution).

But that’s not all. Our app also boasts a powerful ‘Targets’ feature, allowing you to seamlessly measure performance right from your Jira dashboard.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of harnessing the potential of data segmentation defined in the ‘Data Sources’ and integrating it with targets. This combination allows you to generate Jira KPI reports, like ‘Achieve x% improvement compared to the previous period‘ and ‘Ensuring that the number of bugs doesn’t exceed x% of the total issues‘, for example. Elevate your performance management with ease and efficiency, all within your Jira environment.
