Collaborate with Smart Links in Jira, Confluence, and Atlas

In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, collaboration tools are more important than ever. Over the past few weeks, we’ve added new Smart Link features that enable seamless integration and interaction across platforms. From interactive Smart Links to creating Jira issues or Confluence pages, join us as we delve into these features designed to make teamwork effortless.

Enhanced interaction with Smart Links

Smart Links are a fantastic tool for integrating information across various platforms. Now, we're taking it a step further - by selecting a Smart Link, you can view more detailed metadata and information. Not only can you see more, but you can interact with them directly, making it easier to work across products without having to leave the page.

What is a Smart Link?

Insert Jira issues in Confluence as a table

To bring synergy between your project management and documentation, we’ve improved the way you insert Jira issues directly into Confluence. Even better, these issues can be displayed as a table which you can update as needed. This feature promotes transparency, allows for real-time updates, and makes tracking project progress a breeze.

In an effort to streamline your project management and documentation process, we've introduced a new feature — '/create'. This command allows you to swiftly create a new Jira issue or Confluence page, right from your document or comment. Simply typing '/create' followed by the name of your issue or page will initiate the process, saving you time and enhancing productivity.

We’ve also introduced a new feature that enables users to Follow or Unfollow projects in Atlas by hovering over Smart Links from Jira and Confluence. This additional functionality aims to make project tracking more straightforward and accessible. It's a practical update designed to enhance workflow and efficiency.

Join your team in other products or request access

With an array of products to boost your collaboration, there may be instances where you need access to specific tools. Depending on your access level, you can conveniently join your team in other products. If you don't have access, don't worry - you can simply request it. This ensures a smooth, uninterrupted flow of work and communication across your team.

More to come!

We are constantly working on improving your collaborative experience. Stay tuned for more updates and features that will make your teamwork more streamlined and efficient.

With these features, we aim to simplify your work process, drive collaboration, and boost productivity. We're excited for you to try these out and look forward to hearing your feedback!

This is great information. Maybe it is named something different but I notice you can no longer see the last status comment when using either the legacy or new Jira macro. I hope that feature comes back. It was very useful.

Hi @Noemi Flores

I am the PM that works on new Jira macro.  Do you mean you are not able to retrieve comment field in Jira legacy macro and new Jira macro?
