If you're a Jira admin, you may have noticed that we have two different Scrum and Kanban templates in Jira Software - next-gen templates and classic templates. We've written this article to explain the difference, to help you make the right choice for your team.
The new Jira Software experience is easier to configure and grows more powerful every day. Part of the new experience are next-gen Scrum and Kanban project templates. They provide a streamlined experience, are easier to use, and quicker to set up than classic projects. Think Trello, for software teams. If you're new to Jira, new to agile, or work in a small team, we recommend you start your project with one of these templates. If you've been with us for a while, you may know them as Agility projects.
We're always listening to your feedback and making improvements to these templates based on what you say. If you're keen to help us shape the future of Jira Software, hit the Give feedback button in the project menu. To find out what features are coming next, check out our release notes page.
The classic Scrum and Kanban project templates have all the power and functionality that Jira is known for. These templates have a steep learning curve, but a huge number of options for planning, tracking, and reporting on your team's work. If your team is familiar with Jira, has a mature agile practice, or has a complex workflow, we recommend sticking to these templates.
