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.

The schemes used by JWM projects

To use a metaphor, the project board and screens are like the body of a car – the shiny and sleek visual of what most of us actually identify as being the car. It's what we see and touch and show others. But under that JWM car is the chassis or frame, made up of schemes that set our permissions, control notifications and type of work, and provide the workflow, among other things.

The best place to see the grouping of schemes is in the Summary of Project settings. To navigate there, click on Project settings while on the project and then select Summary. Remember, you must be a project administrator to access and change project settings such as schemes:

Do not get too caught up in trying to read the fine print in Figure 4.19; we will discuss the major headings. We should also note that this is just a cursory introduction to the schemes. We will learn how to modify them...
