With version 6.4 of JIRA a new project navigation was introduced called project centric view or project centric navigation. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/An+introduction+to+project+centric+navigation
Because it is a major change in user experience I am interested from usability point of view how other users like this new navigation.
One thing I find disappointing is the direct deep dive into details (going to a Kanban / Scrum board resp. linking to list of issues) when opening a project.
With the previous navigation concept there is this summary page with project description and issue statistics (unresolved issues per affected version, per component, per assignee etc.) providing a nice overview and good starting point to dive into details.
This was one of the wow effects after migration of issue data from Bugzilla to JIRA and I miss this overwiew now in current implementation of project centric navigation.
What do you think?
Best regards, Holger
the issue statistics are still there , it's just well kinda "hidden" (took me a while to find it)
(quoting my answer from here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/15701804)
The old Project Summary overview can still be accessed with the new Project view:
(using JIRA 6.4.10)
Edit : created an issue to make this overview more accessible : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-47175
Personally I prefer my own dashboards and I use the kanban boards most of the time , but I agree that the default view should be something that a user can chose.
I checked and there is an issue for this in the Atlassian bug tracker :https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-42283
Voted and watched
I'd prefer it to land on a project summary type screen as well, rather than a board, and quite a few of the people who I've worked with recently would prefer it too. Even the developers the boards are aimed at prefer a project overview, and wouldn't mind the additional click to get to the board.
