Time in Status Cloud provides both file export functions and a REST API to get data out. But if you want to automate getting data from Time in Status you probably need to do some custom development.

To overcome this obstacle for many users, we prepared the sample files below.

These files include some basic functionality to set parameters and get Time in Status report data from REST API directly into the spreadsheet file. You can use these files as a starting point, build your reporting with pivot tables and charts on them and use the ready-built integration functions to easily refresh your data.


The page includes the templates and instructions for getting data from Time in Status on Jira Cloud. 

If you are working with Jira Server or Jira Data Center, see TiS Server and Data Center - Sample Spreadsheet Integration Files
