The below recording is showing the configuration for ‘Time between created and First date in status ‘In progress’.

  • First date in status / Last date in status are date fields that in addition may be used in ‘Time between’ and ‘Time since’ metrics. Once selected, you can add one or multiple statuses. In case of multiple statuses, the first date when the issue is transitioned to any of the statuses in the list is taken.
  • First date in assignee / Last date in assignee: use it to display time between ‘Created’ and ‘First date in one or multiple assignees’, or last day in ‘Unassigned’, etc.

  • Time from ‘Due date’ to ‘Resolved’
