- Calendar view (with one-click task creation, date expansions, filtering, and more)
- Timeline view (with drag handles, nested tasks, filters, export as an image, and upcoming dependency mapping)
- Board view (with filtering, search, drag-and-drop, and status categories)

Hi @Chase Wilson 

These are all great new features.....and all of them appear to be working (in my instance) except certain Timeline features (nesting, grab handles). Any idea why?

I have tested on a generic JWM project and also on one with customised issue types and workflow. Which leads to, will the nesting work for Epic to "Custom story level issue type" as well as Task to sub-task?

Hey @Curt Holley , I cheated a bit and showed off an instance with features going live later this week, sorry! Coming in a few days.

Epic nesting is something we're considering for the next improvement, feel free to email me at if you want to chat through the use case for that.

When can we expect the ability for users to create these projects themselves for those of us with Jira Software?

Chase Wilson Atlassian Team Jul 12, 2021

Hey @Brandon Fish , any Jira admin of a Jira Software instance can create business projects (aka Jira Work Management projects). As for the ability for non-admins to create them, right now we've enabled this functionality for instances that only have Jira Work Management enabled. Any instance with Jira Software or Jira Service Management will need to contact their admin to create a project.

@Chase Wilson Yes, is that a permanent decision not to allow us as administrators of a Jira Software platform to allow non-admins to create Jira Work Management projects?  So if all 1000+ of my users want a personal to-do project, I have to field all of those requests?

I can see why as an admin we might want some control, if only to enforce some sort of project key naming scheme, but I don't see how that problem would go away if you were only using JWM.

Can we at least grant project creation to a group or groups? 

@Chase Wilson Would it be possible for you to post a demo going into more detail on dashboards and reports? Specifically how to customize them and explain any limitations? Thanks!

Is there someplace where we can have sample Jira Work Management projects to import or create a new one with sample data?
