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.

Chapter 9: Duplicating Projects and Starting Outside the Box

So far, we have explored and learned how to get up and running with Jira Work Management (JWM) quickly by making use of the standard or out-of-the-box functions of JWM. This typically means creating projects and issues directly in the product by simply clicking on a few buttons and adding some text.

This chapter will venture off the beaten path and look at ways to create issues from outside of the tool. This provides us with flexibility as to how our customers and internal teammates can get work requests to us and removes some of the friction when starting new work.

If you have already been using the Jira Software and/or Jira Service Management (JSM) projects but want to take advantage of the cool new features of JWM with your existing work, we will learn how to migrate existing projects to JWM. Finally, we will have one more look at a Marketplace app to help with creating issues based on existing issues.
