We use JIRA Cloud.
We have team members who do not use JIRA because we do not want them to get distracted by the long discussions in "commenting" that some of our issues accumulate. We want to share clear, confirmed tasks (e.g., do this, not that).
To share tasks with these team members, I send them emails that I generate manually in Gmail. I then paste the email content in "comments" to record the communication. I do not use an exported PDF of the issue because there are too many fields that are distracting to the team member.
I would prefer to use the issue description field as the final confirmation of the task, "share" the issue with the team member via the share link in the upper right, and have the team member either
As I type this, I am beginning to think that I could just use sub-tasks and keep those clean and not use commenting there, but I do not want to generate extra issues.
Please consider the questions above and feel free to offer up any other suggestions you may have.
I was also going to suggest just using sub tasks. If you have a license that allows for enough seats where you could give those users access to JIRA, then you could not use the jira-users group for any permissions, and only for access to JIRA. Then craft a user custom field in the issue, and set up issue security to allow all normal users access, and the person on the custom field. But then you would not give them membership into whatever role or group has the permission to edit the issues, only the browse project permission.
Subtasks are much easier to track and maintain and train your users to use though.
