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.

Using the List

The List is one of the most exciting new features and provides fantastic new functionality. While it appears to be very similar to the standard Jira Issues view, the JWM List is unique in that all the columns provide inline editing functionality.

This new feature rivals the queue capabilities of the Jira Service Management (JSM) product as that tool's primary view of multiple issues. No board is created with JSM projects, and as JSM is mainly intended to be a ticketing-type system, agents rely heavily on the various queues available.

For JWM projects, however, the List provides an alternative view to the Board, along with enhanced editing capabilities directly in the tool. The feature is still under development, but I think you will find this to be a very welcome addition to the standard Jira functionality.

To access the List, simply click on the List menu option to the left. The List will display a set of columns matching the system fields available...
