Get notified in a convenient way.

Boomerang's notifications are invaluable when it comes to managing Jira issues. You can now receive notifications through email or easily connect with Slack so that your team members can receive reminders in the right place at the right time. This eliminates any possible delays from forgotten assignments and assures maximum productivity at the right time.

Jira email Notifications

When a reminder is triggered, a comment containing the warning is automatically added to the corresponding Jira issue. If your Jira notification settings are configured correctly, the recipient of the reminder will also receive an email notification. This functionality is especially helpful for teams who are managing multiple tasks and deadlines simultaneously. By using reminders, teams can ensure that important issues are not overlooked or forgotten, thus increasing their overall efficiency and productivity.
