Jira & Gmail – the perfect tandem for your team's productivity

Morning. There is still an hour before the general team meeting starts. You make coffee, yawn and sit down at the computer. Maybe you worked all night and the morning came for you conventionally - somewhere around 1:00 p.m. But work will not wait, and deadlines are burning.

Primarily, you check your email inbox. There are so many letters that you will finish reading them only when pigs fly. It feels like you're in Harry Potter's aunt and uncle's living room, and letters are pouring in on you everywhere. By the time you finish reading all the emails, you forget about everything in the world and miss important messages.

Then why not create tasks right from your Gmail inbox? Switching from tab to tab is inconvenient, but you can try the Email&Tasks: Jira Cloud for Gmail add-on and optimize your workflow.

How Email&Tasks: Jira Cloud for Gmail works

Someone would call it magic, but let’s reveal this secret. You can convert any email into Jira task automatically. The algorithm scans your email and generates an issue (summary and description are taken from the text of the message). A sender of the email becomes a reporter, a recipient - an assignee.

It is also possible to create a task manually. The particularly convenient function is the ability to add files to the task in attachments in the letter. You don't need to download files to your computer - send the necessary files to your Jira with one click.

Finding tasks and editing them. For example, it is possible to comment on any Jira ticket.

Log your work time. Using the search in the app, you can find a task and enter the time spent working on it.

The installation process is simple and easy to understand. You can find step-by-step instructions in the documentation.

30-day trial is available to check if the app is good for you.

P.S. Now everything will be on time. Email inbox is converted into Jira issue with the wave of a magic wand. Dobby got a useful app - Dobby is now free! :)
