Time to SLA offers everything you need to manage an unlimited number of SLAs. Follow the steps in this section to start keeping track of your SLAs with ease!

Step 1 - Create a Calendar

You can define your own business days/hours within Time to SLA, which uses this to calculate the remaining time on SLAs. In order to do this you need to create a calendar before you can define an SLA or, alternatively, you can use the predefined 7x24 calendar. Time to SLA allows you to create an unlimited number of calendars.

You can also:

  • Set as many business time frames as you need for a business day.
  • Define holidays as either full days or custom hours (i.e. half days) and recurring or non-recurring.

Step 2 - Create an SLA

After you have created a calendar, you can create an SLA. Time to SLA lets you define an unlimited number of SLAs. 

You can:

  • Trigger an SLA to start/end based on status, date fields and comments.
  • Differentiate SLAs based on the priority of issues.
  • Set SLA Goals as duration, negotiation date or dynamic duration.
  • Select one of the calculation methods.
  • Narrow down the scope of an SLA using JQL functions.
