In short, Jira Work Management is a friendly, intuitive way for business teams (like marketing, HR, finance, operations, design, legal, and sales) to access the power of Jira and collaborate with their technical counterparts. The launch of Jira Work Management adds these new features today, with many more coming soon:
List view with in-line editing, easy column management, and local filtering / sorting changes for users
Calendar view with status category-based coloring and expandable modals
Timeline view (similar to simple roadmaps) with support for Tasks, Subtasks, and every other issue type
Board view with new lozenges for status categories and subtask visibility on cards
Form builder with easy drag-and-drop functionality
Project background colors
A Jira admin for your organization’s Jira Cloud instance can simply make a company-managed Business project to get access to the new features. Jira admins of any Jira product can make Business projects, regardless of which Jira product is licensed. Jira Work Management is synonymous with Business projects.
For instances with only Jira Work Management provisioned, admins can now grant users the permission to create Business projects from the default list of templates. These users will not be able to manage any settings aspect of those Business projects — only create them. This is ideal for instances where admins want to leverage the power and consistency of company-managed projects but want to delegate project creation ability to users.
Every existing Business project on your Jira Cloud instance has been migrated to the new Jira Work Management features. It will not change any existing configuration settings or data. Due to Jira Work Management being a cloud-based product, the change will happen instantaneously. You can think of this change as simply receiving new features at no additional cost.
Jira Work Management is built on company-managed Business projects.
Jira Work Management will be the new name and reimagination of Jira Core Cloud, complete with many new features and capabilities. As Jira Work Management is built on the same company-managed Business projects as Jira Core, every existing and new Business project on Cloud has gained these new features.
Jira Work Management was designed with business teams in mind — teams like Marketing, HR, Finance, Legal, Design, Sales, and Operations. Jira Work Management does not currently have scrum capabilities such as sprints, and it will not include features like code, pipelines, and backlog.
Jira Software is optimized for software teams who practice agile methodologies and have a need for scrum / kanban, sprints, version/s, or releases features.
Jira Work Management includes features like forms to help business teams consolidate their work in one place. However, it is not optimized for service-based teams or agents, who often need more service-specific functionality such as queues, customer portals, and SLAs. In addition, Jira Work Management forms are only accessible to licensed Jira users on that instance with issue create permissions for the project using the form.
Jira Work Management is a structured work management tool for organizations to plan and track work across teams and projects within a highly configurable, well-defined framework.
Jira Work Management is an easy choice for organizations that are already using Jira Software or Jira Service Management. With a Jira admin already in place, it’s simple to connect Jira Work Management as an approachable tool for business teams while still allowing for the admin-led governance and maintenance that teams and organizations require at scale.
The shared Jira Cloud application allows for dependencies to be identified early and information to flow automatically between the technical and non-technical sides of an organization. Jira Work Management leverages all of the enterprise-ready functionality of Jira to become the last piece of the puzzle needed for entire organizations to manage their work in one place, on one central system — Jira. If your organization purchased Jira Software premium, users will be able to use multi-project automation and ladder up Jira Work Management data into advanced roadmaps. Simply select a Jira Work Management project as one of the data sources to bring all of your work together.
Trello is a flexible work management tool for teams to plan and track work at all levels, ranging from weekly meeting agendas to executing big initiatives.
Trello focuses on flexibility and delegating management to end-users. It is the digital manifestation of sticky notes on a wall in the real world, which makes it particularly easy to get started for those who are new to work management software or looking for a better alternative to spreadsheets and task apps. Anyone on a team can create a board or contribute to a board for that team, which makes it easy to adapt the work management system to the needs of an individual, a project, or a team, at any given time —without the need for an admin or special project permissions.
A board is flexible enough to be used to plan and track work in every way that you define work. For example, you can have a board serve as the place to submit ideas during a brainstorm, vote on them afterward, and then use that same board as an information management system to share out those ideas as you keep the board updated with campaign progress, rich file attachments, and due dates throughout the quarter.
Jira Work Management is a cloud-only product. We will not be releasing Server or Data Center variations of Jira Work Management. However, we just announced that data residency will soon be included for no extra charge with all paid editions of Jira Work Management.
For now, any licensed Jira user has access to Jira Work Management projects and features once enabled for your organization’s instance. Creating a Business project while using Jira Software or Jira Service Management means you are creating a Jira Work Management project.
You are still able to purchase Jira Work Management individually and can do so here.
More details coming soon! You can also check out our public roadmap.
