App of the Month

With so many apps out there, finding interesting new apps that can add value to your instance can be daunting and time-consuming. Thankfully, through MARS we can take a bit of the pressure off!

Each month we highlight our MARS "App of the Month". This app, selected using MARS-powered insights, provides unique value to customers and is a tool that we believe more Atlassian customers ought to know about.

This month we are highlighting the sumUp for Jira by Decadis.

sumUp for Jira

sumUp for Jira is an interesting tool in the Decadis suite of apps. While not as feature dense/complex as excellent tools like Jira Workflow Toolbox or Admin Toolbox for Jira, it holds a very nice position in the Jira reporting space. Closing the gap between the limited options Jira users have in native gadgets and without the high complexity of enterprise grade solutions, sumUp provides users with a strong degree of customization and power while ensuring all users can get value out of it. 

sumUp lets users perform real-time calculations to create insightful real time dashboards, all with a simple no-code setup. Users can sum up story points, time estimates, budgets, worklogs, custom fields, and more with the flexibility to utilize saved and custom JQL filters, group issues by fields, extend custom field support and much more. 

As Figure 1 shows, sumUp for Jira is a leading tool in the data calculation/aggregation space offering a nice niche for customers who are looking for a powerful tool but often with a more simple user experience and more competitive price point than many of its competitors.

sumUp for Jira Use Cases

Effortlessly Group by Project-Related Fields

Customers can use sumUp for Jira to group project-related fields like components, versions, or statuses in team-managed projects. While default gadgets often group by ID, resulting in multiple confusing columns, sumUp lets users easily group by name with a single checkmark, simplifying data organization and making your reports more meaningful.

Instantly Add Gadgets with Custom JQL

Often Jira users try to “just quickly add” a gadget only to realize they haven’t saved the query as a filter. With sumUp, users can write custom JQL directly within the gadget configuration, bypassing the need for pre-saved filters. This feature streamlines the process, allowing you to create insightful gadgets quickly and efficiently.

Flexible Grouping by Date Fields

Many users using default gadgets often find grouping data by daily fields while grouping by date fields highly impractical. However, sumUp's extended date field support allows meaningful usage of date fields like created and due dates. You can now drill down on your numbers on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis, providing a flexible and detailed view of your project timelines.
