As I understand it, Jira Work Management is targeting people who want to stay in the Jira ecosystem, but have a more simplified and streamlined interface, without the complexity of Jira Software.
With this in mind, to me there is a glaring missing piece, which is the layer above a project. I could go into detail describing it, but it would be simpler to just point to another project management tool geared toward this audience, such as Asana.
Here are some points
I understand there would be some complications with combining tasks from multiple projects, since they would have potentially different workflows, etc. This could potentially be solved with the grouping feature I listed. Attributes of projects could optionally be defined at the group level instead of on the project level.
If there are elements of this that are already in place, and I've missed them, I'd love to know, but haven't been able to find any of this yet.
Thanks for your thorough suggestions and awesome feedback about Jira Work Management! As what @John Funk said, we started with a goal of making it simpler for business team to work on Jira. However, we are currently exploring ways to scale Jira Work Management across multiple projects, teams, and department.
As part of the JWM team, I'd love to chat with you both further about your needs and potentially show you some concepts that might solve some of your requirements.
If you are up for it, feel free to book a time here and I'll schedule up a 45 mins call to better understand you are trying to solve.
Thanks again and have a great day!
I'd also love to chat to you about new features in Jira Work Management.
I would like to see a couple of immediate/urgent changes including the ability to use more layers to have Programme > Project > Workstream (Epic/Parent issue) > Tasks (child issues). These need to be as standard option in the scheme. I understand that Jira only has project level so Programme may not be an option, but at least can it be easier to associate a Parent Issue with a Child issue?
Maybe I'm doing something wrong in my settings, but either way, I'd really appreciate a chat to share feedback too.
