2. Case study

HDC developed an add-in for Office 365 (Excel) to ensure a smooth, fast and easy handling for creating complex reports based on existing Jira (Cloud) issues.
One of the main aspects was to reduce the amount of workload needed to be done for getting reports about existing issues in Jira.
Understanding the Jira environment, changing and generating filters in Jira (via the browser), downloading issue lists and finally importing these lists into Microsoft Excel are now history.
With XTractor for Jira (Cloud) you only need one application - Microsoft Excel. No more and you'll be able to generate perfect daily reports and data analysis.
