I am testing if Jira Software (Cloud) could be of use in our case as Civil Engineers. We work with many Projects witch are all mostly identically in forms of project-settings - Sprints - epics - tasks - subtasks and so on..
Therefore it would be nice when we create a new project we could chose from a own-made template, let's say: Streetproject, Building, Bridge and so on. The templates should initialize predifined issue types settings. Even Sprints, Epic definitions and Tasks are mostly the same, so also those should be within the templates.
Do you have any suggestions how we could manage this? Thanks in advance
Hi Marc - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
One suggestion is that you create a base (or template) project that has all of the desired schemes attached to it, including issue types and workflows. Then when you create a new Project, simply use the Advanced function and base it on an existing Project (one of the base/template) projects.
You could then use an add-on such as Automation For Jira to create all of the issues (i.e. Epics, Tasks, Sprints, etc.) needed.
Thanks for your continuous help. I realized that i better first have a look at the different project-types to find out which one suits best for our company. As written, we are Civil Engineers, we have mostly predefined processes. Also we have about 20 people working across different projects at the same time. Even if i like scrum, i don't know if it's easy and intuitiv to use for our case.
May i ask what you think would fit for our needs? Thanks again.
Most of our teams use Kanban and not Scrum. Scrum provides for batching several pieces of work together, developing them in the same time period and deploying the finished products together.
Kanban is continuous improvement, continuous delivery - as each card gets finished, it is deployed. So you are encouraged to limit your work in progress and use a pull system.
We've been using this hack on our Kanban board and are pretty happy with it.
If you have recurring tasks with the same recurring sub-tasks, you can make a template system as follows.
Jira is a great tool to use across different departments. Forget that paperwork – switch to Jira and get that tasks done smoothly. Marketing Jira allows for a complete digital transformation of you...
