Today, let's talk about reporting in Jira. We all know it can be challenging, leading many organizations to stick to traditional reporting methods instead of exploring available tools.
Fortunately, Jira has a built-in dashboard feature that can make reporting much more effortless. This article will explore Jira dashboards’ benefits, limitations, and what to consider when building one.
Jira dashboards can help users aggregate all of the release/project/portfolio information they need in one place. This feature can be handy for those using Jira for release management and project managers who need to communicate progress across various teams and stakeholders. Additionally, Jira dashboards can help identify bottlenecks, provide real-time updates, and offer valuable insights into project status.
Jira dashboards, however, come with limitations and challenges on your way to a perfect dashboard that will suit all your teams' needs. These may be a steep learning curve, a mostly engineering-centric interface that may be difficult for new users, and the risk of creating overcomplicated workflows, to name a few.
Luckily, you can easily overcome these challenges by providing novice users with tutorials and help sections, simplifying the workflows, and seeking expert guidance in the Community and among solution partners when necessary.
When building a Jira dashboard, take time to prioritize the gadgets that will be most useful to you, keeping in mind your goals and audience. Think of what charts will help you to present data most clearly, arrange the data logically, with your essential KPIs at the top of the page, and ask for stakeholder feedback for further customization. Iteration is critical, so please continue to refine and improve your dashboard until you find the one that best fits your needs.
