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 3: Creating Your First Project

Now that we have a lot of the preliminaries out of the way, let's get down to some real work. As you might have already guessed, the first step will be to create a project. We will walk through an example using the project management template, as it is the one that is most widely used.

This will begin our hands-on experience with the tool and we will follow the same process, in terms of how objects are created, as we progress from chapter to chapter. We will follow that up by creating our first issues and discovering how they are displayed on the board. Then, we will take a look at some of the administrative aspects of the tool that are automatically created when you build a project.

In this chapter, we are going to cover the following main topics:

  • The process of creating a new project
  • What's next after creating a project?
  • The administration components of Jira Work Management projects
