    I want to have a Dashboard that shows hours logged in a particular time period by a User, a Project or for a particular customer. This feature is not available in JIRA - very frustrating! Better Excel Plugin for JIRA looks like it will do exactly what I need, but I we are running JIRA Cloud. Would you please create a version for JIRA Cloud?

    This tool has been crucial for our company to help measure ticket ages by state.  This helps us track our turnaround time for getting customer proposals out the door as well as our device repairs.  We currently have a hosted server but we are getting pressured by Atlassian to move to cloud as they are moving to end of life for the server variety.  We are looking to make the move in early 2021 but not having this will hurt. I have upvoted each folks comments if that is what helps.

    We use Better Excel for JIRA and Zephyr reports. For now, we have the JIRA Server offer but we will migrate to JIRA Cloud. It would be great to be able to keep our reports on Better Excel Cloud.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to comment and share your use cases here!

    We still can't offer a release date on this and count on your continued patience. The plans for Better Excel Exporter Cloud are not abandoned, but we are asking you again to hold on for a little longer and keep following this thread!

    Please know that we are following this space as well and will be sharing news with you as soon as we have them.

    @Effie Bagourdi, if you are open to sharing more specific use cases regarding your customers, I'm happy to read those. Feel free to reach out to me: levente.szabo@midori-global.com

    Hi Su and Everyone!

    The wait is almost over!

    As you can read in previous comments, preparations for the beta testing have been underway for a while. This means that Better Excel Exporter Cloud is getting in very good shape.

    Actually, we hit a milestone and we are making the first steps in opening up Better Excel Exporter Cloud for the first few who are interested!


    This is not actually the "beta" state, let's call it "alpha". I explained this in a little more depth on our Slack, please join the conversation there.

    The main thing is this: Reply here or send me an email at levente.szabo@midori-global.com if you are an early-bird and ready to try Better Excel Exporter for Jira Cloud!

    We have many customers (we are an Atlassian Solution Partner) using Better Excel extensively in Server.  Now we plan migration to cloud and it is really an issue.  It will be really important for us to have a roadmap of the cloud version!!

    This would be a big deal for us as well... At the last Summit, it seemed pretty clear to me that by making the decision to not develop the Connect interface for server instances, Atlassian is (intentionally or not) de-emphasizing server instances.  That being the case, I plan on moving to a hosted instance in the future (even though I'd prefer to remain on server).  The only real limitation keeping me on server at this point is my reliance on the Better Excel plugin for advanced reporting.  I love the plugin and would hate to have to find workarounds...

    This also seems to be exactly what I need. I don't want do host my own Jira. The cloud solution is perfect for me. But I really needed better reporting and dashboard.

    Hi Jordon and everyone interested in the cloud version of Better Excel Exporter,

    Please use the "thumbs-up" button above for voting.

    Better Excel Exporter Cloud has indeed been on the roadmap for quite a long time, but its exact position on our roadmap changed over time as we had to consider other features and products that created more immediate value for our customers.

    Its position however improved a lot in the recent few months and as I said this February, it is now in the top part of our roadmap and getting much more attention than ever before.

    You will be hearing more about this in the coming months, so, please continue following this place as we will be sharing updates about Better Excel Exporter Cloud here as well as offering potential beta testing invitations, previews and other opportunities for early adopters here.

    We thank you so much for this strong interest and support and appreciate your patience!

    I am happy to report that Better Excel Exporter for Jira Cloud has been released for public!

    Thanks a million for your enthusiasm and patience! We worked long hours to deliver this and we are really proud of the final result. In many sense it is even better than the Server and Data Center versions.

    Please go and install it from the Atlassian Marketplace listing or using the installation instructions.

    Is this on the roadmap at all yet? I imagine this is definitely not trivial.

    Hi Russel and All,

    While we still can't share an official release date, I can assure you that Better Excel Exporter Cloud has a stable place on the product team's roadmap (close to the top of it). We have this planned for the not too distant future and will be communicating about the progress in this comment thread.

    Please continue to follow this place so you are getting notifications as soon as we have any news.

    Thanks for your continued patience and support!

    Being this is offered for non cloud users, it would be nice to have this for a cloud user.  

     

    I have a need to add up story points for executives on dashboards, however I cannot and this looks to be the resolution to our issue.

    Right now , we are migrating our jira from server to cloud , but i see that the plugin
    Better Excel Automation is only available for jira server and data center .

    It will be very noce if we can see that plugin in cloud . Really ueseful , especially the excel file as an attachement o the filter subscription .

    More or less the same requirement than Christopher Bird. I would like to add "as soon as possible".

    Majken, this is most definitely not trivial. Even when having an app already available for Jira Server, it requires to be 100% rebuilt for Jira Cloud, because the technological environment is totally different.

    This is definitely in our roadmap, but I can't tell when it will be available.

    I would like to see this option for the cloud. I have used it at my former company and it really helped to be able to send reports to customers and increased customer satisfaction.

    We are on Server and we use Better Excel to generate daily reports. 

    Now we were forced to move to Cloud, we will definitely miss Better Excel in Cloud.

     

    Is there any estimation to get better excel in Cloud ?

    Thank You
