Time Tracking - Column Summary

Previously, I used to be able to see the summary of my Time Tracking column but the summary row is now grayed out and I don’t have the option in settings to Show Column Summary. Is this a feature they recently did away with?


I was looking for the same thing. I was really useful and I am wondering if it’s a bug.

Hello @Patnard and @McKennaOMG !

This is indeed a feature that has been deprecated.

Many monday users have also been asking this question, and I know that this issue has been raised with monday’s internal team.

It was intended to make working with the boards more efficient, but clearly it has not been having the intended impact.

I will make sure to let you know should I have any new information!

Hello @Patnard and @McKennaOMG ! :star_struck:

Our team released Time in Status add-on which helps to track time the issue has spent in each workflow status easily. So you can monitor how fast the issue moves between statuses.
You’ll get user-friendly data on the board in a few seconds.

You can try it on the Monday Marketplace and share your experience with us.
Hope you find this add-on helpful.

Hey There,

We now have to export to see time tracking totals :frowning: I can no longer see a summary of time being spent at a glance and it’s a pain to manage now.

Please bring this back!!!

Hi @jarodthornton .

For better or for worse, I am not a part of monday’s decision making team.

We have communicated however together with other monday partners that this is a useful feature that should be brought back, and I am hopeful that it eventually will.

I will let you know should I learn anything new.

Hi Jarod - we hear where you’re coming from and appreciate your feedback here :pray: To combat this change, you can instead utilise the Formula Column to calculate that column summary. Let me know if you have any issues!

If I can chip in, a useful part of that feature was that it would give a summary for the groups as well, since they get their summary. Do we know if this is a bug, or an intentionally removed feature for an ulterior motive?

This feature was removed due to increased feedback regarding its calculation and reporting performance - which was significantly impacting workflows. You’re welcome to send me a private message to share more of your feedback :pray:

I guess there must be a good reason for removing this feature, but on the face of it, it seems like adding a formula column to do the calculation would also impact performance. We already had the option to hide the column summary so that would have been a way to avoid the overhead if desired.
I used this feature and it’s sudden removal without warning is quite frustrating.
