We’re excited to give you the first glimpse of the new home for business teams on Jira — Jira Work Management. Jira Work Management is the next generation of Jira Core, redesigned and reimagined to accelerate the agility of business teams. It’s friendly, fast, and intuitive, yet it keeps all the best Jira features that you know and love. The waitlist for this new product concept from Atlassian is open today.
Jira Work Management combines cutting-edge work management capabilities with the power and customizability of Jira to create a new standard for business teams managing projects. Marketing, HR, Finance, Design, Legal, Sales, Operations, and other teams of any sort will find it easy and intuitive to get work done in this new Jira product built just for them.
This is the first Jira built for business teams, by business teams. We crafted this new Jira experience directly with customer design partners of all sizes and industries, as well as internal Atlassian teams of every type — including our own Jira Work Management teams. Now, we want to give you early access.
The Jira Work Management team is excited to bring you three brand-new views (list, timeline, and calendar), beautiful forms, delightful background colors, and a packed roadmap to follow them up. All designed specifically for business teams and the way they work.
In-line editing is the new standard. Our list view makes updating and adding new tasks fast. Teams can show or hide columns, drag-and-drop tasks, and sort or filter their work. Visual changes to the list view, such as sorting, filtering, and altering columns, happen locally for each user. Our users were tired of messed up filters in spreadsheets and so were we!
Your teams will see the list view front-and-center when they start using Jira Work Management.
Customer insight: Done tasks should be removed from the default list view. They’ll be gone! Behind a filter, of course.
We’ve redesigned some Jira features for business teams, which means this ain’t just your simple roadmap. Tasks and Subtasks are now visible on the timeline view as bars, and issue data is displayed on the bars themselves to keep staying in context easy. Plus, dependency management and clear issue hierarchies are staying to make sure this view stays full-powered.
It’s a Gantt chart to surpass them all, combining the best of power and usability.
Customer insight: Data should be represented on the bars themselves to spend less time searching. Almost finished.
For a long time, we’ve hidden calendars in Confluence or dashboards. Now, they’ve made the prime-time. Create new tasks from empty spaces, see the current status of work at a glance with color-based (and icon-based) bars, or quickly switch to “Today” from any date.
Customer insight: Customers also want weekly and quarterly options in addition to the monthly visual. We’re working on it!
Simple requests need a simple solution — our new project forms have you covered. Project admins can make a new form for each project in seconds by dragging over relevant project fields. You can change how field names appear on the form, spend time making your description perfect with a full-fledged editor, and rearrange fields instantly — all with autosave to back you up.
Customer insight: Customers wanted to preview their form before sending out the link. Permission granted.
Fewer updates here, but we've added lozenges to the column names so it's easier than ever to see what's a To-do, In progress, or Done status category. We also added support for seeing how many subtasks relate to a card on the board. Expect big changes to the board later this year!
Customer insight: Clicking into issues to see if they had associated subtasks took a long time. Not shown here, but we fixed that!
Last but not least, project background colors are finally here! Project admins can choose from 14 colorful themes with the click of a mouse.
Customer insight: Customers couldn’t agree on the best colors, so we just added as many as we could find.
This is only the very beginning. We’re thrilled, delighted, chuffed, ecstatic (take your pick) to bring this new product concept to your instance and organization. For the release date and future roadmap of Jira Work Management, stay tuned!
