Is there a way to use JIRA for daily standup meeting?

Our daily stand up meeting

Most developers make notes about what they will talk about, simple text list with done and to-do section. Tickets they worked on are listed there.

Is there a way to simplify this, drop the notes and use JIRA for daily standup meeting?


Developers want to see tasks they worked on grouped in done and to-do sections. This is a problem because a task assigned to a tester does not have a developer that worked on it as an assignee anymore.

Any ideas or feedback how to use JIRA for a daily standup meeting are super welcomed!!

You should create custom field named "Developer" and capture its value before the development start. Then developers can build filters (reports) based on this field

Maybe you could create a seperate issue (sub-task or related issue) to assign to the tester, seperating development and testing. This way you keep the assignee of the developer in tact.

JIRA supports the JQL clause "Assignee was someUserId" . You could use this capability to build quick filters on your board by developer which would include all stories the developer worked on.

Hi Rafal,

Here's my (better late than never) 10 cents. The fact that most developers prefer to work with paper notes during standups seems to reflect the concept that Joel Bancroft-Connors presented in his blogpost on why physical task boards still matter.

Would you be open to considering a scenario where JIRA and the developers' notes on a physical board coexist and can easily be synced? The Agile Cards for JIRA add-on can facilitate this. Your developers could print their tasks from JIRA as paper cards, with a specific card color assigned to each developer. With such a color-coded physical board it would be easy to track which task belonged to whom originally, no matter the stage in the workflow. After each standup your board in JIRA and the one on the wall could easily be synced by using the Agile Cards scanner feature.

Would this work for you?

Kind regards,

Magdalena from Spartez
