Can it be done where a solo developer uses Jira for managing his or her personal software development projects or even for solo freelancing software developers? If so, how should Jira Software Cloud be used in this situation? Thanks.
There is nothing stopping you using Jira as a To Do list or for your own, personal Kanban.
It's up to you how you structure your work - use Jira how you work as a developer. An example of how you could do this as a To Do List:
And an example of how you could do it as a Freelancer:
This is to just get you thinking of how you could present the data based on your needs, outside of the basics (Summary, Description). You'll find as you begin to work other fields might become more relevant - think about what makes sense to visualise or perhaps what you or a client might use from a progress reporting stand-point to help evolve how you use the system.
I know this was effectively closed months ago but I have a follow up question.
If I want to do 2 week sprints but have many clients what is the best way to manage the work across all of my clients? If I have multiple projects (one for each client) then I have to load multiple sprints which sounds like I might be doubling up the work needed.
Many of my clients will be signing up for single projects that last from 1-2 months and then they are done with no recurring work while other clients are on retainer and we do monthly updates (again broken down into 2 week sprints so I can manage my time).
Any feedback is appreciated!
I'd view this as just one sprint.
You might have work which comes from multiple sources (i.e project clients) - but you still only have one two week iteration - there are not multiples of you, you're just splitting your time between various clients.
To do this:
