Can Forms Exist on a Software Project vs. Business Project?

Marisa R_ I'm New Here Jun 21, 2022

My Product Management team hopes to setup a Kanban board for new intakes as part of our Product Management workflow. The features that exist when you create a new "software project" best fit our needs, however the software project doesn't automatically include the "Forms" functionality that you can create a template for Business teams to submit their new idea. 


Is it possible for a Software Project to include the "Forms" functionality? If yes, how do we enable this on a new Software Project? 


Additionally, outside of utilizing Jira Align, does anyone have good recommendations for how Product Management teams manage new initiative intake via Atlassian product that is not bucketed into the Premium package?


Thanks in advance for all the help!

I think the Forms feature is only available for Jira Work Management (Business projects) and Jira Service Management projects. Here's an article talking about Jira Forms on a Business project, and then it goes on to talk about a marketplace add-on to use Forms in other project types.

Just to add what @Connor is mentioning, at the moment you cannot create new issues using the new Forms, you can only add Forms to existing issues in JSW. If you need to create issues from a form your options are to use JWM or JSM.

@Connor Thank you so much! Super helpful and good to know the marketplace add-on for Forms can exist for other project types (i.e. Software Projects). 

You're welcome Marisa, glad I could assist :) Please mark my answer as accepted so future users with the same/similar question will see that it's solved.
