Limitations of Business Projects

Business projects are awesome but why are they so rigid! I would really like to create custom boards and other customizations to my Business Project. I am forced to use a Software project due to Business Project's lack of customization. I have tried to use the work arounds discussed in the community but it just creates confusion for my team who uses the tool as well as other teams that are adopting Jira.


Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

There's a somewhat cynical answer to this - business projects are supposed to be basic and simple so that when someone needs more power, they have to go buy Jira Software or Jira Service Manangement.

The less cynical answer is just that "business users don't need, or want, complicated processes and boards"

There's nothing wrong with using Software boards that point to business projects though, that's definitely a good way to go.

Like John Funk likes this

Business projects are still quite new, so make suggestions on what you would like to see and maybe others will like it as well so Atlassian will pick it up :)

Hi @Jordin Eickhoff

another thing to consider is that many of the new features in JWM are also available for other project types (such as Jira Software projects) through the Atlassian Marketplace. E.g., this app seems like a good fit for a calendar view, and I myself work on an app that many customers use successfully as an alternative or extension to the list view (JXL for Jira). 

I understand that apps may mean additional administration effort and costs, but depending on your use cases, this may well be worth it.
