Greetings Fellow Community Members!
It’s hard to believe that the summer is over here and kids will be headed back to school next week. On the other hand, they say time flies when you are having fun so I’m going to assume that must be it! Once again, I have an excellent collection of articles for you to browse this month. Let’s not waste any time and dive right into them!
First up, an important notice from the University Team. In an effort to reduce the costs for a number of courses the ability to register for a number of courses will be put on hold until Sept. 26th. Please read more details in the post, especially if you were planning on taking any paid courses within the next month.
Next, there is a brand new in-person/digital event coming to San Francisco (or your computer) on September 29th 2022! Atlassian presents: Work Life, which is going to focus on Teamwork and collaboration. Go check this one out, it’s free to register for so you have nothing to lose.
Continuing with announcements from Atlassian, the Jira Cloud team has announce two new project permissions coming soon to replace the existing “Browse Projects“ permission. If you are a Jira Cloud Administrator or currently working on a migration to Jira Cloud, you will want to read the details.
Finally, as far as announcements are concerned, there is now a new opt-in feature in the Teamwork Lab group that will allow you to book 1:1 conversations with other community members. The goal of this feature is to allow those who want to build more personal connections with your fellow community members to have the opportunity to do so. If you are now interested about this new feature, go check out the article for more details.
Speaking of the Teamwork lab, there is a wonderful new article about the balancing act of managing your various “identities“ at work. It’s yet another very thought provoking article that challenges you to think about the connections you build at work. Who you build them with and what do you have to trade off as a part of building closer connections with a specific group. It’s 100% worth the read, go check it out!
Now that we’ve got you thinking, you should check out the Best Tips for Build an Agile Mindset! All of these tips come from your fellow community members. If you are new to Agile or just looking to see if there is something you can do to improve, you might learn something here you didn’t already know.
Next up, is a relaunch of the Company User Groups Online Community group. If you haven’t heard of Company User groups, this is similar to the local Community groups you may have seen or attended in a city near you, only these are designed for passionate people who are interested in being an Atlassian champion within your own company. You would organize events similar to the Atlassian Community Events, except it would be for your fellow employees. If this is something you are interested in, you might want to check out this relaunch post which has information about how you can get involved in this.
Next, we all know that JiraCon is coming. If you want a sneak peek at one of the topics that will be discussed as well as a discount code to register for the digital event. You will want to check out: “What it's like coming to Jira from Trello“
Next, the Confluence: Collaboratory Video series, is a great set of tips about how you might get the most out of using Confluence. I thought these were very helpful and having videos available to watch as well was very engaging.
Last, but certainly not least, is our August #JiraHeroes story! This month we feature @John Rabal who shares all about how they use Jira Software Insights, Burndown Charts and Jira Automation to super charged their work. I always recommend reading through these articles because you may learn something new that could help your own company.
Still looking for more content? Don’t worry, I have you covered! Here are some additional trending discussions you might want to get involved in:
Thank you all for stopping by and checking out these wonderful articles. I hope you found something interesting out of the ones I selected for you this month, and we’ll see you all again next time.
