Time Reports | Missing Issues


I've noticed when running a Time Report (with time tracking enabled) that issues which have not yet had work logged manually through the time tracking tab, fail to show up (or be enumerated in any way) by the report query. Is this intended behavior?

This feature was going to be very useful for us in tracking Estimates vs Actuals (aka time remaining) for a sprint/milestone/segment in time or per feature set etc. But if it leaves out items that haven't been started, it becomes a lot less useful for us.

Even when I set a default value for all new tasks' Spent Time field with a non-0 value (I've used 1M, 2D etc), the report appears to still fail to fetch those items (even though Spent Time now has a discrete value).

Am I trying to use this feature in a way it's not intended? Is there another way to get this kind of report/view? [aka there are XXX (cumulative) days of work remaining for sprintX or queryable items Y)?

Hi Jessie,

I am sorry for the delay. I will duplicate the answer here as well just in case. 
Actually, this is expected behavior of Time Report - it displays only issues which have any spent time logged. Unfortunately, it is not possible to create custom reports. However, you can fetch all required data via REST API (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/incloud/YouTrack-REST-API-Reference.html) and then build any charts with some third-party tool.

I can suggest you using issue list functionality. In a search bar, enter a query to filter issues (for example: `project: MyProject Type: Feature State: Open`) and set up issue view to display both spent time and estimation fields:

After that, you can export this data to Excel or as a csv/html file ('reports' dropdown in the right upper corner)
