Jira recurring tasks for Quality control and Software Testing

Despite your experience and expertise in testing, there is always space for a mistake and missing out on something important. However, using checklists on various stages of software development and testing will help you ensure you and your team pay attention to every single detail that has to be fixed or improved.

To simplify and automate your testing workflow even further, you can use Recurring Checklists in Jira add-on that will save you lots of time and effort while monitoring the progress of your project.

Why are Checklists important for testing teams?

A checklist is essential to ensure product quality. As we are all humans, and it’s impossible to keep everything in mind, the checklist will eliminate the burden of double-checking if all features of your product function well over and over again.

With so many things to be tested out multiple times before the software deployment, the checklist will help your team to:

  • create strict guidelines to follow, guaranteeing nothing is missed out
  • quickly determine the points that need to be fixed or finalized
  • minimize the number of tests
  • deploy the software or app faster without compromising the quality

As you see, a checklist is a simple but vital feature that will save you and your team tons of time and effort, cut the product-to-market time, and ensure quality.

What are the benefits of using Checklists in Jira?

All of us know that checklists have been created to relieve people of the need to remember many things at the same time. That’s why we write lists before going shopping, traveling, or buying gifts for Christmas. They help us to do everything that needs to be done.

When we speak about testing and software, everything is the same, with the only exception that consequences, if we miss something, vary from minor quality defects to serious product malfunctions, client hazards, expensive recalls, and even lawsuits.

To eliminate these risks, Jira checklists will ensure quality control while testing:

  • get the product right the first time
  • meet the requirements of the client
  • improve your understanding of the product

How to create an issue Checklist for Jira for your team?

The Recurring Checklists and Report add-on will help you get done all your Jira scheduled tasks. To set up the workflow, you need to follow these simple steps:

  • create a recurring issue with a ToDo list
  • use Checklist builder to customize the checklist
  • select the project to place the checklist
  • add the assignee
  • you can assign each point on the checklist to one or a group of responsible people
  • set the amount of recurrence (every day/week/month/quarter/year)

Once you create a checklist in Jira, you’ll be able to monitor the progress by tracking each checklist action item with a detailed one-page report. In general, checklists will reduce the pressure from task volume for you and your team.

Below is an example of a quality checklist for the SaaSJet team.


Moreover, you can set up scheduling in Jira, and the issue will be created automatically, saving you even more time and avoiding micromanagement.


To sum up

A quality control checklist is one of your best tools to help avoid errors, reduce time-to-market, and ensure everything is done on time. This process can become even smoother and more effective with the Recurring Checklists and Report add-on that will help you structure and monitor the whole process.
