Today, let's talk about the power of automation...
Imagine having a backlog of 100 issues, 30% of which are high priority.
You create various types of custom fields to prioritise them further, input and update field values, then create multiple reports to filter out issues and order them by custom field values.
What next? Export reports as CSV for the cross-report data analysis in Excel?
There must be a better way to consolidate data and leverage all factors to define those highest-value backlog items that would bring you the most profit.
And there is!
You can save time and skip so many steps by setting automation between Jira and a backlog prioritization tool.
And so, groom your backlog directly in Jira to spot those low-hanging fruit right away.
