Letting contributors create ideas in a Jira Product Discovery project

Hi everyone,

Previously we provided more details about how Jira Product Discovery pricing was going to work, and in particular the new user roles: creator, contributor and stakeholders - with the ability for contributors and stakeholders to create ideas.

This post explains how to let contributors create ideas. 

How it works

Open project settings:

Open “Features > Create ideas” and turn the feature on:

Contributors in your project will then be able to create ideas (but they won’t be able to edit them later)

Screenshot 2023-06-26 at 11.14.21.png

Who will see this? anyone who has the "Create an idea" permission in this project - which we've added to the "Contributor" project role. 

Note that only people who are unable to create and edit ideas in a project will see this button. If your project access is set to "Open" then anyone on the site with product access to Jira Product Discovery will be able to create ideas (instead of this "create an idea" feature). To change this behaviour, change the project access to "Limited"

(Note: people can also click on the Jira blue create button in the top navigation bar, but it's going to show the standard Jira experience for creating issues, we haven't yet managed to merge those)

 

By default the dialog will show summary and description fields:

You can configure it to ask users to specify more fields. To do this: create a view with the list of fields you want contributors to specify when creating ideas:

And choose this view in the Project settings > Create ideas:

Pro-tips

  • If you specify a filter in the view, Jira Product Discovery will try to edit the created idea so it matches the filter in the view (for example: setting the value of a “Triaged: Yes/No” field to “No”), so you can use it to keep the created ideas there until you’ve had a chance to review them

  • Instead of (or on top of) selecting a view, you can select an idea description template with a list of questions you want people to answer when creating an idea.

reprisk.atlassian.net @Tanguy Crusson We're about to implement a new product feedback form using the JSM queue you suggested a while ago, but have been waiting to pull the trigger to first see what the JPD form will look like - very curious how this will work in practice. Ideally, we would be able to have one standalone triage form that we could for instance link to from Salesforce, where stakeholders can choose a product component and then be directed to the relevant JPD project to submit their feedback.
