Just use the Create Shortcut feature in Chrome and tell it to open as a Window.
Then you can add it to your Start Menu or Task Bar like a normal app (second to the last one)
And it opens like an app:
That's great thank you @Josh Lyon ! I've been using Jira for almost 2 years and been looking for a solution all that time
Does anyone know if it's possible to change the icon shown in the taskbar? Just to help differentiate between Chrome and Jira (It doesnt even have to be the official Jira logo)
Ideally, Chrome gets the site's `favico.ico` and applies it as the shortcut's icon.
The Jira (by atlassian) app for Mac has some great benefits over the Chrome website and also some limitations.
The upshot is that an app is faster and better for real time team communications as issues evolve. However, the app has bugs and limitations, so it's FAR from perfect.
* Speed. navigating between issues, checking status, etc is MUCH faster than web. This is a huge deal and I love the app because of this.
* Notifications. You get proper notifications to Mac OS when issue status changes
* Commenting. It's very strong a commenting and it makes every issue feel like a slack channel. Ie. by clicking on an app notification
* Issue editing. Not all the options are there.
* There is a major but (currently) with editing the description of an issue which is a deal breaker
* Work Log. It's not fast to use the worklog if you're entering a lot of data
thanks for this link, this desktop client by ALM works is amazing: much faster than the web version + all sorts of handy sort and filter options, + 2way sync!
I hope someone will start maintaining it again (Jira or ALM)
