I'm starting out doing a project and thought it useful to try use a tool. Jira was suggested and while I'm sure there are many out there, I'd like to choose one and get familiar with it so Jira it is.
I am using the free version for under 10 users.
I'm trying to understand what I can actually do with it and this is not a'how long is a piece of string question'.
Seems I can create a few 'boards' or different parts of my project if thats the correct use of the boards.
Then it seems I can create an issue which can be
I can then assign this to someone in the team (set up as part of the team).
However if for example I want to store meeting notes or draw some diagrams or whatever it is then it seems the only way to do this is to use one of these - like the story for example and record my notes there.
I appreciate that the story function is probably meant for something more like story cards or similar.

Hi @matthew arnott,
Welcome to the Community!
@Flavien Gache has offered some great advice, I'd also add that you might want to check out the Atlassian University's free training catalog: https://training.atlassian.com/free-training-catalog
Specifically the "Learn Jira Basics" which should be the first item in the catalog. That should give you some examples of how Atlassian intended the products to be used (I'm not saying that's the only way to use them) which should get you started on your way.
I hope that helps!
