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.

How issue layouts affect the fields on your screens

To modify the layout of the fields used by the screen for your project only, click on the Issue layout link on the left-hand side menu when in the Project settings screen. You must be a project administrator to access the project settings and modify the issue layout:

After selecting this option, you will advance to the Issue layout screen, as seen in Figure 7.14. If you have multiple screens for different issue types in your project, you will be able to edit the layout of each screen. See Figure 7.16, which is toward the end of this chapter, for more details on issue type screen schemes:
