Find issues that took longer to complete than estimated

As a project manager, you want to find out which issues took longer to complete than their estimated completion date, which is stored as a date in a custom field. The dateCompare() Enhanced JQL Function makes it possible to compare dates stored in an issue, even if they are stored in custom fields. You can even add date offsets.
dateCompare("project = Search", "resolutionDate > estComplDate")
(where estComplDate is a custom field)

Find epics with stories that are currently being worked on

As a scrum master, you want to see all of the epics with stories that your team is currently working on, i.e. epics that have stories that were started but haven't been finished. The epicsOf() Enhanced JQL Function returns the epics linked to the result of a subquery of your choice.
epicsOf(issuetype ="Story" AND status in ("In Progress", "In Review"))
