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.

In this chapter, we learned how to create a new project by utilizing the components of an existing project and how to achieve similar results using shared schemes. We also saw some alternative methods to creating issues from outside of Jira using various third-party applications and tools.

Then, we learned how to migrate existing Jira projects into JWM projects to begin using JWM's features. Finally, we learned about the Deep Clone for Jira Marketplace app and how it can extend functionality by cloning issues into other projects and modifying fields in the process.

With these new skills, you will be able to add flexibility to how you approach project and issue creation. This might eliminate the need for you to have to jump back and forth between applications to create issues.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to leverage the Automation for Jira tool to automate routine tasks and add power to our projects and issues.
