How to best start with Jira Align?

Pavel Junek Community Leader Jan 17, 2020

Hello everyone!

I would like to ask your experience how best to start with Jira Align?
I am looking for some documentation, articles, videos or your personal observations :-)

Thanks a lot for sharing!

Hi @Pavel Junek,

Is your company considering implementing Jira Align?

Are you part of the evaluation team? If so, then the best option is to get access to the Jira Align Launch Pad, it's a version of Jira Align with guided simulations that allow you to work with demo data while learning.

If your company has already implemented Jira Align,

then those training simulations are available within Jira Align in the upper right corner when you click on what looks like a clipboard (assuming your company enabled the simulations).

If neither of the above cases is true, and you are a team member wanting to learn on your own:

Upcoming ways to learn:

  • I know that Atlassian is in the process of building out a series of Jira Align certification courses, but I don't know when they will be available to the public or internally to client companies. 
    • To the awesome @Shawn Kessler - Sorry to put you on the spot (not really :-)) - Any time frame?
  • Now for a deep gulp (as opposed to a Big Gulp), I now have article writing rights (privileges?) in the Atlassian Community and I am planning a series of articles (and possibly webinars/videos) to address this very question. I just need to make sure I comply with all Atlassian Community standards (once I know what they all are for videos/webinars).
    • The articles, videos, and webinars will be pure learning content.
    • Any suggestions for what people would like to learn first?

@Peter Jessen Atlassian University is taking the lead on the JA certification courses. I have pinged them to try and get a timeframe/roadmap. Stay tuned.

Thanks Peter have you thought about writing an article that contains more detail about Jira Align launch pad?  I think that would be really helpful.

Thank you @Peter Jessen for this additional information on Align. Look forward to reading more about it, although it seems it may be a little large for our organization size.

Great start @Peter Jessen to learn about Align, after Portfolio and Big Picture, i will now attempt Align in a dutch company and will follow some of your tips...and feedback on them in this community. And i trust @Fun Man Andy  will help organise some event  on this.✨
