Supercharge Your Jira, Trello, and Confluence Workflow with free Low-Code Automations

Preamble: There was no other category than this – but I'm sure you'll love the topic anyway. And more examples are coming, and the article will be updated over time.

Low-code solutions are gaining popularity as an efficient and effective way to boost productivity and streamline workflow. If you're an Atlassian tools user, such as Jira Cloud, Confluence Cloud, or Trello, you're in luck – there are several low-code tools that integrate seamlessly with these platforms.

In this article, we'll take a look at some of the most popular low-code tools that you can use with Atlassian, including PixieBrix, UI.Vision RPA, Tasker for Android, and Shortcuts for iOS and macOS.

These tools allow you to automate repetitive tasks, such as data entry, testing, and task tracking, using a visual interface and pre-built workflows.

So, let's dive in and explore how low-code solutions can help you work smarter, not harder, with Atlassian tools.

Low-Code Tools for Browsers

PixieBrix and UI.Vision RPA are browser automation tools that allow users to create custom automation workflows for repetitive tasks. With these tools, users can automate tasks such as data entry, testing, giving feedback, or adding and tracking tasks. And they come with a free plan and community support.

PixieBrix is a low-code tool that allows users to automate repetitive tasks such as data entry, testing, feedback, or task tracking. It provides a visual interface for creating automation workflows by dragging and dropping pre-built blocks.

It's compatible with Google Chrome, making it an excellent choice for Atlassian tool users who primarily use this browser. Additionally, PixieBrix offers a free plan and a Marketplace with pre-built mods, making it accessible to users with different budgets and skill levels.

Thanks to @Brittany Joiner there is plenty of great examples available.

UI.Vision RPA, on the other hand, is an extension for Google Chrome and Firefox that allows users to record and replay macros, making it easier to automate repetitive tasks.

Provides a user-friendly interface for recording and replaying macros. With UI.Vision RPA, Atlassian tool users can automate repetitive tasks such as data entry or testing, saving valuable time and increasing productivity.

You could automate the process of updating Jira issues with the latest test results by recording a macro that navigates to the Jira issue, updates the status, and saves the changes. Also automate the process of creating new Confluence pages by recording a macro that navigates to the right space, creates a new page / template, and adds the necessary content.

Low-Code Tools for Android Devices

Tasker for Android is a powerful automation app that allows users to create custom automation workflows for their Android devices. It is not free but with only a small price point. With Tasker, users can automate tasks such as opening apps, sending messages, adjusting device settings, and much more.

Tasker uses a visual interface and a range of pre-built actions and triggers that allow users to create custom automation workflows without having to write code. More information on YouTube.

You could also automate the process of creating a new Trello card or Jira issue when you take a certain action on your phone.

Low-Code for Apple iPhone and iPad

Shortcuts for iOS is a similar tool for Apple devices that allows users to automate tasks across different apps and services on their iPhone and iPad. Shortcuts uses a visual interface and a range of pre-built actions and triggers that allow users to create custom automation workflows without having to write code.

Users can create tasks that perform tasks such as opening apps, sending messages, adjusting device settings, and more. Shortcuts is compatible with the Jira App for iOS, making it an excellent choice for Jira users.

You could automate the process of creating a new Jira issue when you add a new reminder in the Reminders app.

macOS

Love this!! I'm curious to see what kind of things folks here are wanted to see automated and maybe we can figure out how to build them with low/no-code tools!

@Brittany Joiner indeed! A total Impossible alone, Possible together. There are so many tools out there. One alone can't name them all. But I wanted to make a start. And I hope people will share examples over time.
