I'm planning a project that's not related to software (property-development and construction).
Happens to be that I'm a software developer myself (not in this project though), and I've been working with tools like DevOps and project management methodologies.
I have a project that divides in several phases each made up of smaller stages, each of them having a hierarchy tree of tasks and sub tasks.
The project has a more linear fashion although some parts can take place simultaneously.
Is there a way to achieve this with Jira Work Management?
Any template I should be using or tutorial I should be looking at?
Hi @weitzhandler , welcome! Jira Work Management now supports two levels of hierarchy on the Timeline view (issue --> subtask) with plans for three levels on the list in the next few months (epic --> issue --> subtask). Dependency mapping on the Timeline is also coming this week.
As for templates, I would suggest using the Project Management template since your workflow doesn't seem to be particularly complex in this case. Splitting work into Epics is probably best (which will entail adding the Epic issue type to the project you create).
Hey @Chase Wilson and thanks for your quick and detailed reply.
Would you suggest meanwhile starting with Jira Software until these features are implemented in Work Management?
Would it be able to migrate it from Software when time comes?
This is kind of a blocker to me in Work Management.
Checked with the team – if all goes well you should see Task --> Subtask on the list in the next couple of weeks and then Epic --> Task --> Subtask on the list about a month afterwards.
Migration pains from Software to Work Management are increased by how custom your project is, so if the workflow and issue types are fairly standard I think the conversion should be fairly easy.
Something that may tide you over in the meantime is that the Timeline view will soon accommodate Epic --> Task AND Task --> Subtask (but not all three at once).
Hi @Chase Wilson , I am also waiting anxiously for the 3-tier Epic>Task>Subtask hierarchy in Work Management for my marketing task management project (currently operating in a software project), what is the best way to get notified when this specific functionality is launched?
In the Plan (Advanced roadmaps - top menu option) view, there is a "Filter" option on the top left. The topmost item under Filter is "Hierarchy". If you set your hierarchy range as "Epic" to Sub-task" then you'll see an Epic-> Task-> Sub-task hierarchy. Still trying to determine if I can get an Epic-> Story-> Task-> Sub-task. If that fails I see an option to place a custom level above Epic.
