The 'Resolution Time' gadget displays a bar chart showing the average time taken to resolve issues. This is useful to show you the trends in resolution time. The report is based on your choice of project or issue filter, and your chosen units of time (ie. hours, days, weeks, months, quarters or years). The 'Resolution Time' is the difference between an issue's Resolution Date and Created date. If a Resolution Date is not set, the issue won't be counted in this gadget. The Resolution Date is the last date that the system Resolution field was set to any non-empty value.
