Insightful Jira Time Tracking

Get an Overview Before You Start

Hubstaff’s desktop app is not just a way to automatically track time to different Jira issues. It also helps your team prioritize and see all their assigned tasks in one place.

The Hubstaff time tracking app helps your team work smarter by:

  • Showing all assigned Jira issues in one place, right next to the desktop timer.
  • Once an issue is selected, users can view issue updates in the Hubstaff app.
  • Showing how much time was already tracked to a particular issue that day.

Innovative Employee Monitoring Software

Jira time tracking with Hubstaff also comes with screenshots and activity level reporting. Hubstaff takes random screenshots of your employees’ screens while they track time to a Jira issue, so you can see exactly what is being worked on.

Other insightful uses for Hubstaff’s employee monitoring software:

  • Send employee screenshots to clients so they can see what services they are paying for.
  • Use activity levels to give your employees and/or contractors feedback on their performance.
  • Modify the frequency of screenshots. You can choose to have 3, 2 or 1 screenshot taken every 10 minutes, or none at all.
  • Find out who are the most and least productive members of your team.
  • Make sure employees and/or contractors are working on the issue they were assigned by viewing screenshots.


Multiple Uses for Time Reports

Hubstaff’s automatic time reports are data-rich and can be used in many ways.

  • Reports show how much time how much time was spent on a particular issue.
  • Users can view reports based on user, time period or issue.
  • Reports can be sent to clients along with invoices.
  • You can use reports to pay employees and contractors for the exact amount of time worked over a specific period.
  • Analyze reports to see which issues take too much time.
  • Reports can be exported and emailed.
  • Use Hubstaff time reports for your administrative records.
  • Users can add time manually to have it appear in reports. This can be done if a user forgets to start his or her desktop timer, or has a work task away that had to be done away from a computer.

After integrating Hubstaff and Jira for the first time in a few easy steps, your Jira issues and users automatically sync.

  • Since all issues will be brought over to Hubstaff, you can organize Jira issues by priority or assignee.
  • Users can begin tracking their time to Jira issues immediately.
