You’re one of the very first to try the enhanced board and backlog in company-managed projects. Your feedback will help shape the final experience before it’s rolled out to everyone later this year.
Here’s everything you need to know while being part of the Early Access Program (EAP):
We recently announced a series of efficiency and performance improvements coming to company-managed boards and backlogs. Alongside a modernized look and feel, here are some of the updates we’re most excited about:
Inline issue editing
Improved epic and version panels
More out-of-the-box filters
Faster load times and smoother interactions
For more details, check out our announcement.
When can I start using the enhanced board and backlog?
The EAP kicks off on May 22, 2023 and will run for around 5 weeks.
We plan to slowly roll out enhancements to EAP participants starting on this date, so please note that it may take a few extra days for the changes to be available to you.
Once you have access, you’ll see the board and backlog actions menu expanded with a new section:
This section of the menu will remain after the EAP wraps up, but the “early access” lozenge will be removed as we enter the next stage of the rollout.
Can I switch enhancements on and off?
For the duration of the EAP, you can switch back and forth between the old and new experience.
These enhancements are applied per user, which means that no one else on your site will see these changes unless they’re also signed up for the EAP.
What feedback are we looking for?
We’re keen to hear your feedback on these aspects of the new experience:
Usability (how easy it is to use features and complete tasks)
Functionality (how well a feature’s capabilities meet your needs)
Performance (how quickly features load and how smooth interactions are)
How easy it is for you to understand what’s changed
How do I ask questions and give feedback?
You can ask our team questions and send feedback directly in-product. In the enhancements menu, simply select Give feedback. If needed, we’ll reach out for more information so we can better assist you.
Roughly every 2 weeks, we’ll send a short survey in-product to understand how these changes impact your work in Jira, as well as your confidence to roll out changes to all other users on your site.
Once we've addressed your feedback, we'll begin rolling out enhancements to all users of company-managed projects. Every few weeks, we’ll update this article to outline the latest fixes and enhancements based on what you’ve shared with us.
You can follow the projected GA release on the cloud roadmap.
In the meantime, we look forward to hearing what you think of the enhanced Jira board and backlog!
