As explained in this blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx), we had updated the status of this suggestion to “Under Review” to let you know we are tracking it on our backlog. To better indicate which one we are actively working on or which ones are on our 6-month plan, we introduced the states “Started” and “Planned”. The goal is to give an update on in progress suggestions at least every 3 months. This suggestion is still on our backlog, but they are not part of the 6-month plan.

Again seems very anit-agile, not that it couldn't go in other templates. To me it is a statistic that can be gamed, therefore has no use for reporting.
You want to be goal focused rather than time focused. It doesn't matter whether something took 5 hours longer than you thought, the emphasis should be did we deliver what we expected.
