We know it's common in business teams (like many other teams), to work across multiple projects at one time. Some people have even told us that the number of projects they are working on at any one time is in the double digits! This can lead to a number of different challenges, such as context switching, time management and prioritisation of the tasks you need to get done.
In Jira Work Management, we have been exploring this problem space and have a number of upcoming changes planned that will make it easier for you to navigate between and see work across your multiple business projects.
There are three main updates that I wanted to share:
Multiple business projects from the sidebar (currently rolling out)
We want to make it quick and easy to switch between your projects from within Jira Work Management. We have started rolling out a change so you will be able to navigate between business projects from the product sidebar. Up to 10 business projects will appear in this sidebar, with a link to the project page to find additional projects. These projects will be ordered by recency (the most recent project you have accessed will appear at the top of the list) and you can click on each project avatar to expand/collapse the side menu.
For more information, view our support documentation here.
The project view navigation will be moving (in development)
Following this release, we will be making another change to the sidebar. The sidebar menu items (including Summary, List, Board, Calendar, Timeline, Forms, Issues, Reports, Project Settings and any shortcuts or Apps you have set-up), which will now be sitting under each individual project, will move to horizontal tabs above your project view. Participants we user-tested this with found the design intuitive and familiar.
We know this is a big change to the navigation of business projects and hope that once you have adjusted to this pattern, that it will be quicker and easier for you to not only navigate between projects, but the views within those projects.
Cross project views (in exploration)
We know that getting a helicopter view of projects is important. In order to help solve for this, we are currently exploring cross project views, which would enable you to select one or more projects from within a Jira Work Management view. If you are interested in participating in user testing some prototypes for this feature, please reach out in the comments below.
We hope that these changes can make your day to day project and work management a little bit easier. Please comment below with any feedback or questions - we would love to hear what you think!
