What does the Universal Report do?

As the name suggests, our Universal Report is a report for all possible use cases. Reports such as Progress tracking, project status in a fixed period, timeline report, or any other potential report can be easily created and customized. This way, you always stay up to date on your Jira issues and control projects in real-time.

The intuitive handling with a clean user interface guides you through the creation of your customized results.

Traditional Jira reports often have a complicated structure and do not always allow you to filter by the desired conditions. With the Universal Report, however, you easily select various filters. In addition, working on different display types in a single place makes your daily reporting easier and saves many resources.

Who is the Universal Report designed for?

Because the new report can cover the majority of all imaginable scenarios, the Universal Report is suitable for all company structures, sizes and also for different groups of people. These include:

  • Companies with waterfall approach
    • Program and project managers
    • System administrators
    • IT quality managers
  • Companies with implemented SAFe methodology
    • Product Owners
