Midori is proud to announce that the Better Excel Plugin for JIRA 2.4.0 is generally available at Atlassian Marketplace

New in this release

Performance improvements for spreadsheets with many columns

It primarily improves the performance the "issue-navigator*.xlsx" templates (up to 300-400% faster for hundreds of columns).

Zero-config templates

New convenience methods can save the admin from correctly setting the custom field IDs prior to using a template.

New "repeating fields" templates

The repeating field version of 2 templates are now available.

New calculated field type: "Excel parent key"

This new calculated field can show the parent key for sub-tasks.

Notable changes


  • Fixed: some fields ignore the timezone of the current user
  • Fixed: XLSM and XLS format export files are served with the XLSX files' MIME type
  • Fixed: Formulas containing "<" cannot be parsed
  • Fixed: 2 templates use the TEXT() function, which may break in non-English Excels

There's a lot more in the full release notes!
