Hot Tickets

This gadget displays the Jira issues that were most actively worked on. Every task has its own rate of hotness (0-100) based on a certain set of criteria. The project, users and time period you want to observe in this gadget can be chosen in the configuration of Hot Tickets. By default, the gadget displays the hottest Jira issues from the previous week.

When counting the hotness rate, we use the following criteria:

– The number of comments added to the issue.

-The number of users logging time in the issue.

– The number of status changes in the issue.

– The sum of hours logged into the issue.

If you are an administrator of the dashboard you can also configure the impact each criterion has on the final hotness ratio.

The gadget counts the relative hotness scale for each task and displays all the issues that scored higher than 30 points, starting with the most active ones. If there are fewer than 5 tickets hotter than 30, the gadget shows 5 issues with the highest score.

Here is an exemplary view of the gadget:

In order to configure “Hot Tickets” click ••• and Edit:

Every criterion can have its impact set. The impact reflects how severely a particular criterion affects the overall score on a hotness scale.

If you want to personalize the view of this gadget you can make such adjustments:
