So far in 2019, the Midori YouTube Channel visitors were most interested in how to export Jira issues from agile boards to Excel.
Agile boards in Jira are the ultimate source of project progress information for many software developer (or business) teams, but according to the latest State of Agile survey, the #2 most used agile project management tool is... wait for it... Microsoft Excel!
The reality is that many established companies use modern agile tools like Jira just as frequently as their good old Excel spreadsheets. Googling for "Excel agile project management" returns a whopping amount of sophisticated Excel templates for agile project management purposes, like "Agile Sprint Backlog with Burndown Chart", "Agile User Story template" and the like.
This is understandable because Excel has all the right features (pivot tables, charts, formulas) for reporting and analyzing the progress of the current or a recently closed sprint. For a team that is used to it, or if they work with third-parties who rely on Excel make the coexistence of these tools a justifiable need.
Better Excel Exporter for Jira allows you to export your Jira issues in the different columns to Excel, but it also comes with built-in report templates for complex sprint reports, epic status reports and more.
How to export the Jira backlog to Excel?
- Navigate to the Jira backlog, agile board or Issue Navigator you want to export
- Open the Export drop-down
- Select the Jira Agile Report export option
