there as an idea arose: we manage a large Jira and Confluence with over 2000 users.
Hence more and more members we have and also the plugins, features increasing we would like to start a 2-weekly or monthly newsletter which informs the appropriate user groups about the new features, plugins we developed, implemented.
Currently we use a News dashboard but according to surveys almost nobody use to watch. Therefore the newsletter would be more efficient.
Well, I know how to do a newsletter but generating from Jira or Confluence would be the best: only in these 2 apps can we easily choose the proper addresses.
Do you use such feature?
Have got any idea how to do it easily?
Thanks for your advises!
I'm not sure how you would do this from JIRA but it would be very easy to do from Confluence. You would just need to create the newsletter on a Confluence page and then use the share page functionality to send the page via email to all the interested parties. This is built in functionality in Confluence so it wouldn't require any extra plugins but it would require that all the JIRA users you are updating have access to Confluence, but if the Newsletter is published from a space that is anonymously viewable then you can share it with mailing lists and anyone can view it whether they have a Confluence login or not. I really believe this would be the best solution for your needs.
All the best,
many thanks for the hints!
Actually I guessed Confluence also:)
Well, the users have access to Confluence but I'd like to send them a "real" newsletter: they don't get a url pointing to a Confluence page but a whole HTML content in email.
What do you think it can be achievable?
We are also interested in creating a newsletter. So far we have been trying to do this using the Space Blogposting options. The problem that we are having is twofold:
There is this feature request that would help with the second part, but hardly has any votes: https://jira.atlassian.com/i#browse/CONF-31125
