Jira Work Management for Business Teams

By: John Funk

Overview of this book

Jira Work Management (JWM) is the newest project management tool from Atlassian, replacing Atlassian's previous product, Jira Core Cloud. While Jira Software focuses on development groups, JWM is specifically targeted toward business teams in your organization, such as human resources, accounting, legal, and marketing, enabling these functional groups to manage and enhance their work, as well as stay connected with their company's developers and other technical groups. This book helps you to explore Jira project templates and work creation and guides you in modifying a board, workflow, and associated schemes. Jira Work Management for Business Teams takes a hands-on approach to JWM implementation and associated processes that will help you get up and running with Jira and make you productive in no time. As you explore the toolset, you'll find out how to create reports, forms, and dashboards. The book also shows you how to manage screens, field layouts, and administer your JWM projects effectively. Finally, you'll get to grips with the basics of creating automation rules and the most popular use cases. By the end of this Jira book, you'll be able to build and manage your own Jira Work Management projects and make basic project-related adjustments to achieve optimal productivity.

If you receive an email notifying you that an issue has been created, clicking on the link in the email will take you directly to the issue.

However, you sometimes just need to take a look at a list of your current issues, or maybe even ones that have been completed in the past. While in your project, you are just a click away from this.

Regardless of which feature you might currently be viewing, you can click on the Issues menu option on the left to see your issues, as illustrated in the following screenshot:

The Issues feature is a carryover tool from the previous Jira Core product. There's not been much of a change to it for those who have used it in the past, but for those of you who are new to the product...
