Are there any plans to have both Company Managed and Team Managed projects in the Jira Work Management world similar to Jira Software?
We use Jira Software, but I really really want calendars and list view, however, I'm not willing to take the leap to JWM because I want teams to take ownership of creating and administering their projects (team managed) rather than having to administer them with ridiculous amounts of permissions schemes as it is in company managed.
I wasn't able to find an open ticket on this, so would be happy to follow one if anyone has a link.
Hi @Josh Allen ,
@Jack Brickey is correct, JWM supports both Company Managed and Team Managed projects and we are currently in the middle of the rollout to all the instances. You might not be able to use it yet since we are only at partial rollout at the moment and your instance might not have been included at the moment.
Hopefully this clarifies any questions you have!
To the best of my understanding and knowledge TMP does exist in the JWM world. Quick check of the documentation would seem to support that - https://support.atlassian.com/jira-work-management/docs/what-are-team-managed-and-company-managed-projects/
Please note that I don't use JWM stand alone is it is inherently built into JSW.
Maybe I am not understanding your question or point?
This is very interesting Jack. It seems to me this article is poorly worded.
"Projects in Jira Work Management can be created as either team-managed or company-managed projects."
I have not found that in JWM you can create a team managed project, at least the type that I want with a calendar and list.
Perhaps there are project types in there that are team managed, however, I have gone through every single project template in JWM to find out and doesn't seem to be the case.
Seems the sentence is incorrect, though if there are TMP it should be written more like:
"Projects in Jira Work Management can be created as either team-managed or company-managed projects, depending on the type you select. Not all JWM projects can be team-managed."
Hi @Josh Allen
to the best of my knowledge, you're right that JWM is based on company-managed projects only, and I personally haven't heard of any plans to make JWM available for team-managed projects.
One thing to consider is that a lot of views and capabilities are also available via the Atlassian Marketplace. These are then typically compatible with all project types, including JSW-based team-managed projects.
As examples, if you're looking for a calendar view, you could check out Calendar for Jira. If you're looking for an interactive list/table view on your issues, you might like JXL for Jira. There's also a number of Form apps but I haven't tried them myself.
E.g., here's a quick preview of how JXL looks in action:
(Disclaimer: I work on JXL :))
Hope this helps!
Well... indeed that is the case. I just played with the new template interface and, while when creating a new SW project you have a step where you select the project type, there is no step to choose project type.
I find this quite odd TBH. I would have assumed that Atlassian would go hard to the hoop on JWM w/ TMP. I am intrigued to learn more on the reasons and plans.
