Query Regarding Quick Filters in Jira Product Development

I am reaching out with a query pertaining to the development of the new Jira Product (JPD). As a dedicated user of Jira Software, I have found the feature of creating and saving quick filters for specific views to be incredibly useful in streamlining workflow processes.

I am curious to know if the functionality of quick filters will also be integrated into the upcoming Jira Product Development platform, or if there is an existing equivalent within JPD that serves a similar purpose. The ability to swiftly create and save filters has significantly enhanced my productivity, allowing me to focus on key tasks without unnecessary navigation complexities.

Hi @eduardo.calix ,

However, the filter you prefer is saved automatically.

When we go to a particular product with a collection of our ideas, we can set the sorting.

1 - grouping by some criterion
2 - filters
3 - fields that we want to display in the table

We can also sort by a particular indicator.

All these parameters are saved, and we get a convenient view.

Or maybe you meant something else, and I misunderstood you?

Hi Eduardo, 

We don't have this feature on our roadmap for the moment, as as Iryna mentioned, in Jira Product Discovery you can create your own views, so you can create any combination of filter/group and sort and save it as a view, so then you can easily navigate between these views without recreating filters every time. 

The quick filters are very useful on a backlog, during a sprint review & planning for example, so something frequent where you need to assign things quickly to specific individuals, but you don't generally need to switch between filters so frequently on a yearly roadmap.

Could you please let me know which type of quick filter you'd like to see on your ideas in Jira Product Discovery ?

Best Regards,
Product Manager @ Jira Product Discovery

@Hermance NDounga Ed and I are on the same team so I'll answer this. 

We use one JPD project to maintain all roadmap ideas. All work and iteration on ideas happens in JPD until it's ready for execution. Our Product team does weekly check ins to make steady progress on work/ideas, make sure statuses reflect reality, remove blockers etc getting the ideas ready for delivery (our own version of scrum). 

It's super helpful to quickly filter by Assignee, or Teams, or Category, (or a custom field for Business owner) without having to modify the view and without seeing all the irrelevant ideas. 

Two additional thoughts:

  • I see meaningful benefit from having quick filters that only impact the current user's view (e.g., someone sharing screen and going through each PM, or team etc to discuss issues), without modifying the standard view/filters for everyone else. 
  • Secondarily, there's no way for Contributors to see just the ideas relevant to them except scroll through the whole view, which greatly reduces the helpfulness of being able to share the roadmap/ideas with engineers or business owners. 

Creating additional views (e.g., one per team or one per PM) is a workaround but I can see it proliferating endlessly and it's not scalable. 

Happy to walk you through our setup so you can better understand the use cases. I see the above as critical to making JPD a more functional tool for daily/weekly work and improve roadmap usability/share-ability across the organization.

Hey Sabina

Thank you for your answer, if you are using Jira Product Discovery to make these types of daily/weekly meetings, then it does make a lot sense indeed. 

To address your two additional thoughts: 

The contributor role is very recent, and while we are currently working on introducing the stakeholder role, to make sure you can share Jira Product Discovery views even with users who are not in your site, we will definitely make improvements on the contributor role and their experience in Jira Product Discovery. 

For the workaround on quick filters, I'd suggest you disable the autosave on the view you are using .Screenshot 2023-08-11 at 17.52.27.png

You won't be switching between users as you would with quick filters, but at least, the modification you'll made on the view during your meeting are only seen by you, and no one else :)

@Hermance NDounga thank you for the reply!

Super important question right now since we are ramping up JPD usage and telling everyone in the company how great it is:

What is your recommendation for now to help Contributors see a specific cut of the ideas? Is creating new views the only option? One view per business owner or engineer (or even each Eng team and each department) is already a lot, and then people will want timeline, list etc. 

Other quick follow ups:

  • Disabling auto-saving works, but it is clunky and there's no global "turn it off" switch (each team member needs to make sure they turn it off for each view). 
  • Stakeholder role sounds nice, our team doesn't have any challenges with non-Jira users but I can see how it would be useful in other setups.
