The Work Log Report (by sumUp) is similar to the Two Dimensional Filter Statistics gadget with the difference that it sums up work logs instead of numeric custom fields.



Select an existing filter or choose to enter custom JQL.


Only available if Custom JQL was selected in the Filter parameter.

No need to create hundreds of filters to be used in various gadgets - simply define the result set by adding custom JQL!


Only time logs of the selected period will be displayed.

Available options are:

  • Current week
  • Last week
  • Last two weeks
  • Current month
  • Custom (define a custom period)

For custom periods only


Select the start date or enter a relative date (e.g. -3m for three months in the past).


Select the end date or enter a relative date (e.g. 1w for one week into the future).

Relative time frames

d = days, w = weeks, m = months, y = years)

Group by

Select a field that will be used to group the results by on the X-axis.

Computation strategy

Define how sumUp will process the calculation internally. Choose one of these two options:

  1. Large number of work logs per returned issue
    • If you expect a large number of work logs per issue, this strategy should deliver the results faster.
  2. Large number of returned issues
    • If you expect a large number of issues with a relatively small number of work logs, choose this option - it will be faster.
Number of results

Choose how many results you want to display on your dashboard.

Additional options

Optionally, you can set different additional options to change the behavior of this gadget.

The following additional options are available:

Auto refresh

Check this option to refresh the results of the gadget every 15 minutes.

Enabling this option is useful when displaying information that needs a periodic refresh. For example, displaying the gadget on a wallboard.

Group by name

This option is helpful if you wish to group the results by fields that share the same name or the options. For example, if you have a fix version named "EAP_Q2" across multiple projects, checking this option will ensure the results will be grouped under the same name instead of showing them as separate entries.

  • By default, all values will be grouped by their ID, meaning that fields or options that share a common name will be treated as two different values, since they don't have the same ID in the database.
    When checking the checkbox , options with the same option name will be treated as one option , even though they are saved as different values in the database.

  • This option is not available for all the fields. It is only available on selecting the certain fields in "Group by" section that could share same name or options. Some of the fields where this option is applicable are:
    • Versions
    • Components
    • Issue type
    • Severity
    • Sprint
    • Status
    • Option-based fields
Issue navigator links

If you are someone who likes seeing the issues behind numeric entries on the gadget, this option is your match. With this option checked, you are taken to the Issue navigator page every time you click on a numeric entry on the sumUp gadget. Once you are on the Issue navigator page, you can see the JQL (and subsequently the issues) that accounts for the numeric entry displayed on gadget.

If you do not usually go to the Issue navigator or if the loading time for your gadget is too high, leave the option unchecked.

Rendering this gadget can be resource-intensive if there is a large number of work logs.
