Objectives Import (via XLS) still not working in Jira Align?

Hi, I found this thread from 2020 and it still seems this function is coming soon?

Does anyone know when/if this is coming???

1 answer

Hi @Jason Leeming ,

Per the Help Center article More actions for objectives, it is still currently disabled.

  • Import Objectives: This option is currently disabled while we work on some enhancements to objectives and import functionality. 

That functionality has been disabled due to work on the new OKR functionalities. 

As a workaround, however, you can use APIv2 to create Objectives programmatically.

I think we want the simplicity of importing the csv file as most users/personas can handle those directions, not many are savvy to know how to use the APIs. We are also interested in when this will be turned on. 

Thank you for the feedback, @Anthony Smidl 

I'll bring your comment to the Product Management team.


As for timelines, you may wanna check this page for Jira Align roadmap.

@Rodrigo Cortez  Thank you, I'd be happy to share other top feedbacks I've seen the past few years in the tool. Do you have any focus groups your Product Management team leverages to help with your backlog refinement? 

Outstanding! You are more than welcome to log any enhancement requests and product suggestions via Jira Align's Public Ideation portal.

Here's how to enroll & log ideas (registration required). 

Check the following Idea on that matter and feel free to add your own perspective:

@Rodrigo Cortez Looks like you're using your Jira Align ideation portal to manage those ideas and then convert to your backlog, nice!

Agree with @Anthony Smidl not all of us can use, or even have access to, the API?  

We have escalated this issue with Atlassian. This is a huge problem for us. It takes us several hours to create objectives. Go out there and vote for
