About Jira

With Jira, there's no shortage of ways to stay in the loop. Whether you prefer to receive updates via email, chat, or by checking in on your mobile device, Jira has you covered. At your desk or on the go with the new mobile interface, Jira helps your team get the job done.

Issues are everywhere: Tasks, ideas, and requests are hiding in documents, people's heads, and deep in your inbox. Use Jira to capture and organize your team's issues, prioritize and take action on what's important, and stay up to date with what's going on around you. Jira makes all of this easy, so your team can spend less time managing the work and more time building great software.

Work the way you want: Your process is at the heart of everything you do. Don't shoehorn your team's work into the default workflow defined by your project tracker. Jira has workflows to match your existing processes, that you can easily adapt as your team evolves. Use the tool that fits your team, don't change your team to fit your tool.

Productive, powerful planning: Teams that need to be effective and efficient choose Jira to help them capture, assign, and prioritize their work. Ensure that everyone on your team knows exactly what needs to be done when, then watch the job get done flawlessly. And when you add the power of agile to Jira– with the Jira Agile add-on – you can even plan agile sprints!

Collaborate easily: On any team, it's important that people can easily share information and reach out for help when they need it. JIRA's simple, intuitive interface allows you to collaborate with teammates and get the job done more efficiently. If you think that's awesome, you'll love it even more when you combine JIRA's @mentions and assignment features with the power of Confluence and HipChat.

Visibility at the speed of light: Watch the issues that are most important to you, monitor activity streams, and share information with powerful dashboards, wallboards, and more. With Jira, you'll always know what's going on.

Collect, service, and report: With Jira Service Desk, the Jira platform becomes a modern, flexible service desk experience that streamlines customer requests and boosts your IT team's efficiency.

Agile project management: These days, just keeping track of your work isn't enough – you've got to be agile. Jira Agile adds agile project management to the power of JIRA.

    Overall I'm very happy to use Jira in a daily basis. It brings structure and clarity to our project management processes. It is also well connected with the other software of the company, line Slack or Salesforce.

    Pros

    'Simplicity' is the first word that comes to my mouth when defining Jira. It is incredibly easy to handle for inexperienced users, at least for the basic features - which is enough for a good part of users.
    In addition I particularly like the possibility to install add-ons: there is most probably always an existing add-on to solve your problem, just need to search for it.

    Cons

    I'm not fully satisfied with the time management feature, in particular the need for a DB extract to get the data.
    On Jira-online, the "Transitions" view is slow to display, always annoying since it's a useful option.

    I find Jira to be a very useful tool. I'm pleased to use it daily. As a result, our management processes are more structured and clear.

    Pros

    After using other software for some time, I've found Jira to be a far better fit for my day-to-day workflow. Besides its excellent features, it is also user-friendly, customizable, and collaborative.

    Cons

    JIRA offers a wide range of features. Despite the simplicity of the software, the functions can be intimidating to new users. In some cases, the response time is slow.

    Ok as a user and action taker - not sure how this works when you are managing the project

    Pros

    All tasks for all actions takers are clearly presented. You know who is responsible for action and who you need to report to.

    Cons

    Navigating between your tasks/action is difficult. Jira opens popups when you don't want it instead of opening task in new window. You will end up with each action opened on new tab to have everything in organised way

    Brickflow Loves Jira

    Reviewed on 26/03/2024

    Pros

    Jira rocks for Brickflow because it keeps things organized with boards and to-do lists, but also makes working together a breeze. Everyone can see how projects are coming along and stay on the same page, which is pretty sweet.

    Cons

    Jira can be a double-edged sword. While it excels at organization with boards and to-do lists, setting things up can feel like navigating a labyrinth. Collaboration features are limited, so forget chatting with teammates directly within the app. For non-technical teams, Jira's robust features might be overkill compared to simpler tools.
