Timesheets, Planner, Cost Tracker Release Notes


  • Fixed: Editing or importing a sub-task to a project impacted the resolution of the parent's account.


Added Team Commitment Graph

  • We added a Team Commitment graph to each user’s Team Membership page. To view the graph on a user’s Team Membership page, navigate to the Team Overview page and select the arrow icon next to the user’s name. The graph helps to visualize a user’s commitment to all the teams they are a member of. If you edit a user’s commitment, the graph adjusts to visualize your changes in real time. Hover along the graph to view team commitment information during specific dates.


Legacy Capacity Report Renamed to Team Member Capacity Report

  • We have renamed the Legacy Capacity report to Team Member Capacity report. We have also moved it to the Reports Overview page and added a tile for it. We recommend that you start creating reports from this page.


Team Member Capacity Report Can Include Team Commitment

  • We have added a checkbox called Include Team Commitment to the Team tab. Select the checkbox to include team commitment information. This feature is useful if you want to include a user’s commitment across other teams in the calculations of their capacity.



Reporting - Upcoming raw data export changes

  • In mid-August, the following changes will occur in the Logged Time Report raw data export that will impact people who use column order, index number, or column name to fetch data. These changes help address reporting accuracy, especially when rounding from seconds to hours.

    • Hours will be renamed to Logged Hours.

    • Billed Hours will be renamed to Billable Hours.

    • A new column, Logged Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Logged Hours/Hours column.

    • A new column, Billable Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Billable Hours/
      Billed Hours column.

  • If you download your raw report data to Excel, the following changes also occur in the Logged Time Report’s Users tab.

    • Worked will be renamed to Logged Hours.

    • Billed will be renamed to Billable Hours.

    • Planned will be renamed to Planned Hours.

    • Required will be renamed to Required Hours.

    • A new column, Logged Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Worked/Logged Hours column.

    • A new column, Billable Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Billed/Billable Hours column.

    • A new column, Planned Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Planned/Planned Hours column.

    • A new column, Required Seconds, will be added adjacent to the Required/Required Hours column.



  • The Tempo Worklog ID column is now included in the Logged Time Report raw data exports at the end.


  • Fixed: Recurring (child) allocations in a repeating plan series were included if they landed only on non-working days.


Capacity Planner - Redesigned Team Configuration Overview Page

  • The user interface of the Team Configuration Overview page has been redesigned and streamlined. Before the redesign, the page only showed you a user’s current membership on the individual team and the information was cluttered. The redesign now allows you to view and manage a user’s memberships across multiple teams in a cleaner layout, as shown below:


  • On the new page, you can perform the following actions:

    • Current Members drop-down: Use to display Current Members or All Members of the team.
      Note: All Members include those who no longer have active membership.

    • Add Member button: Add a team member.

    • Three dot (...) button: Add a Generic Resource or Import members from Jira Groups.

    • Pencil icon: Edit a team member’s details. Details include Role, Commitment, Joining/Leaving Dates, and Skills.

    • Trash icon: Remove a team member. You can choose to end their membership today or remove the membership completely.

    • Arrow icon: Select this icon to view all the Team Memberships of a user.

  • Team Memberships Page


When you select the arrow icon next to a member on the Overview page, the Team Memberships page displays. From here, you can view and manage all of a user’s memberships. You can sort the list according to Team, Availability, Role, Joining, Leaving, and Status columns. You can also use the pencil icon here to edit the member’s details and the trash icon to remove the member from a specific team. Details include Role, Commitment, Joining/Leaving Dates, and Skills. To return to the Team Configuration Overview page, select the back arrow next to the user’s name.

  • Key Benefits of Release
    The redesign of the Team Configuration Overview page and the addition of the Team Memberships page enable resource managers to effectively monitor, report, and allocate the capacity of shared resources. By centralizing the view of team memberships, managers will achieve more accurate planning, improved resource allocation, and enhanced efficiency in managing shared resources across the organization.

Other Improvements

  • Fixed: The Capacity Report would not load if there was no team id found in the user's preferences.

Timesheets - Integrate with Bitbucket and GitLab

  • Help your developers save time by connecting Timesheets to Bitbucket or GitLab. Your developers can then create worklogs from the activities or calendar events instead of trying to remember how much time they spent doing a task.

    • Bitbucket - Actions developers perform with Bitbucket, such as repository pushes or pull requests, are included automatically in their Activities Feed after the integration app is installed. All Tempo user accounts are connected to their Bitbucket accounts.

    • GitLab - Actions developers perform with GitLab, such as merge requests or pushes, are included automatically in their Activities Feed after the integration app is installed. You can connect their Tempo user accounts to their GitLab accounts, or your developers can do it themselves.


Other Improvements - Reporting

  • Group by Initiative (if configured) or other parent issue levels beyond Epic in Logged and Planned Time Reports.

    • We support Jira Premium issue hierarchy levels and custom hierarchy naming in non-Jira Premium editions.

    • There are no changes for users with reports using Group by Epic, except that the query parameter has been updated from groupBy=epic to groupBy=ithl_1.

Other improvements

  • Fixed: In projects with a very high issue count, selecting the "Planned P" column in reports caused a 500 error.


Planner - Flexible Planning

  • Plan anything with our Planner’s new Flex Plans. You don’t need a team, estimate, or assignee - just start planning. Add the details later as the plan becomes clearer.


  • Once you’re ready to assign the plan, you can drag and drop it to a team. This automatically assigns the plan and updates your capacity calculations.


Planner - Capacity Indicator improvements

  • When you open capacity indicators for a team, the capacity breakdown provides more digestible information.


Planner - Sync Team plans with Jira issues

  • Configure Planner to sync your team plans with Jira issues. By default, Team plans are synced with Epics (issue type hierarchy levels 1 and above). You need to have the Tempo Team field available in Jira to successfully sync issues.


Planner - Jira two-way sync improvement

  • Sync plans based on the Jira issue type hierarchy. Team plans are synced with hierarchy 1 or above issue types (Epics and other high-level tasks like Features or Initiatives). Individual plans are synced with hierarchy 0 or below issue types (Stories and small tasks like Bugs or Tasks).

    • GitHub - The time your developers spend on a pull request is entered automatically into the Activities Feed when their accounts are connected with GitHub.

    • Calendars - Users can view all of their scheduled meetings and other events in My Work, log time by clicking on the calendar event cards, and view their calendar events in their Activity Feed without integrating with a calendar individually.


      Learn more about integrating Google Calendar or Office 365 Calendar for your organization.

  • Connect your users to apps integrated on the Organization level in Manage Staff.



Cost Tracker - Scope Cost Tracker projects to Jira projects or epics

  • Added warning icons to better visualize when Cost Tracker projects in any portfolio summary are over budget.



Cost Tracker - Create Cost Tracker projects from structures

In addition to Jira filters, you can now create Cost Tracker projects using a structure from Structure by Tempo.

When you create a project or change the project scope, you can choose between a Jira filter and a structure. If you choose a structure, the structure tasks are imported to the Cost Tracker project, and you can track your costs and revenue as normal.

To use a structure as the project scope, you must integrate Cost Tracker and Structure.

Other Updates

  • Fixed: Tracker dashboard widget had to be refreshed after any changes were made.


Planner - Sync Plans with Jira issues

When plans are synced with Jira, the Tempo plan data is made available outside of Planner. Planned time data can be viewed directly from Jira, as well as from any app that utilizes Jira fields - if the fields selected above are available in the app, then plan data is available.
