Product Update: Introducing Voting

Hey Everyone 👋 ,


I have recently joined the JIRA Product Discovery team as a Product Manager 🥳️

This is my first JPD update 😱😱  but it's a good one 😉

I wanted to share with you our new VOTING feature 🗳  as well as a few UX improvements 

  • Voting🗳: You can now collaborate with other teams in your organisation, by asking them to vote for ideas that are important to them. This is a great way to help your prioritisation decisions (watch the video 👇 to learn more)
  • A quicker way to add comments and data points from within the views



⚠️ REMINDER ⚠️ - voting needs to be manually turned by the JPD Team at the moment so please comment ⤵️⤵️⤵️ if you would like to try it out!





Please could I get access to voting ? Cheers

This looks very interesting, and separate from the current voting feature. We'd love access to be able to use this type of field.

Hi, is it possible to have this activated ? We would like to start using it with teams quite soon :)

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay. We had a few papercuts to manage before releasing into the wild. Voting should now be available within your JPD project. Please let me know if you have any issues and all feedback is welcome. Thanks, Sarah 

Not yet activated for me, but I assume I should wait a bit ?

@David Spire Let me look into this. To check your JPD project is on

Yep, and the project name is Product Discovery Management (RQ), thanks for your help

Hey David, do you want to find some time together to walk through this? This is my calendly link

Great, I offered a session friday morning

@Sarah Stenhouse Please activate this for our team :)

Hi, @Ariana DeJesus Thanks for reaching out! Everyone can get access to votes now! Here's how to do it - 

Navigate to a view >  Fields > Add field > Create field > Field type: Vote




Oh awesome! I thought it wasn't activated for us but I missed the Create field step. Thank you for clarifying and keep up the awesome work!!

I like this! One question though: what do you do when you want to start a new round of votes? I noticed in the existing field, you can't edit the # of votes for each user.

Is the best practice to create a new field for each new sprint for example? If so do you still keep the old field?

@Sarah Stenhouse 

Hi Jeremy, 


That's correct - you would create a new voting field for a new set of votes.

Is that what you would expect from this feature? 




Hmm I guess so. Just not sure if it's the best way to manage to vote. For example, do we care about previous voting results when we start afresh every time with a new field (new round of voting)?

Hey Jason, I think a new field can be useful for avoiding bias from the previous voting round, but maybe this could be achieved another way via some sort of history tracking. I'll capture your feedback and log it with the voting improvements. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Please let me try voting! thank you

Hey @Elsa Chung Voting is now turned on for everyone :)
