Why is it more convenient? The answer is simple - you can create tasks automatically without additional effort, and it will help to organize processes in a more efficient way. 

Let`s discover

In this use case, we`ll show you, how to use BPM features to simplify your work. Our clients had such case:

We are trying to manage an Order fulfillment process. For this, I first created a process template with 4 steps, each has a form. All the steps in Process 1 can be done in parallel, this works very well with BPM

To achieve this, you need to create a new process Template and add steps (mean “task”) according to this Template. With a few clicks, you’ll get a new task for the team member you need.  


Then you should create a form that consists of different forms elements. To make it dynamic, use when/then logic.


In order for the work to go in parallel, you need to add the required project and assignee(s) to each step. Let’s learn how to do that fast and simply.


The next step of our use case is below.

When the last step of Process 1 is complete, the Business Process Manager starts Process 2 which has another form to be completed by a different team. When process 2 is complete, process 3 starts and so on.

To start another process after the end of the previous one, it is necessary to create a new process and add as many steps as you need, as we did in the previous points. Then you should connect BPM with the Jira automation. To do this, you need to copy the Template URL and create a rule in automation - to start another process based on the URL.


Add the Template URL that was copied before to this rule. Now, when a certain trigger occurs, for example, a comment has been added to the task, the template with the tasks to which we have linked it will start.

Only a few steps help you to save lots of time. Convenient, isn’t it?
