Report Builder vs. Tempo Timesheets – A comparison of two Jira time tracking tools

To succeed in project management, you need to know your resources. Since the most crucial resource in project management is the team and their time, project managers need to be aware of their team's time on tasks and the number of issues their team is tackling.

The tools project managers use play an essential part in their success. The agile tool Jira by Atlassian and the Atlassian ecosystem provide solutions to effectively use Jira time tracking and create Jira time tracking reports for finished work. Two of those solutions are the time tracking apps Tempo Timesheets and Actonic's Report Builder. This article will take a closer look at those two Jira reporting plugins and compare them.
