For a team manager, a typical workday often starts with logging into your inbox, tending to emails, and outlining a roster of tasks for the day. Subsequently, you allot responsibilities and assignments through a task management tool, which can consume anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours of your day.

The back-and-forth switch between email and Jira can prove time-consuming and exasperating. Yet, imagine if a more straightforward approach existed to tackling emails and tasks. 

Email task management solution Email&Tasks: Jira Cloud for Gmail has the potential to elevate your inbox experience, enabling your team to collaborate seamlessly.

Are emails dead?

What's the point of utilizing email inboxes? Don't get us wrong, email isn't dead, if only because full-time employees spend up to 2.5 hours per day working with email.

But with the development of various platforms for setting and tracking tasks, the need to control and manage emails has been forgotten.

Most users' email inbox looks like an attic full of junk. There is a lot of stuff, but there is also useful stuff.

Very often, due to inept email management, we miss important things. So let's take a closer look at Email Task Management and learn how to implement it in your workflows.

Must-have features for an Email Task Management app for Jira 

  1. Integration of Jira and email

Well, this is the most important feature. Because without integration, you are doomed to run between your email and Jira.

  1. Managing Tasks and Teams

Sending out tasks is just the beginning; effective team management is a different challenge.

Your project management software must encompass team management capabilities to guarantee each team member is allocated daily tasks.

In the event of task delays, your task management system should possess the capability to rearrange tasks that depend on the delayed one automatically. Furthermore, an integrated calendar, time projection features, and tools for monitoring task progress should be readily available.
