Atlassian launches Jira Work Management to connect all the teams in the company

Atlassian presents Jira Work Management, a new edition that will facilitate project management between all the teams of a company.

Jira Work Management: a new era of collaboration

Atlassian announces the deployment of Jira Work Management for all users. The idea is to allow HR, sales, marketing, finance, design, etc. teams to connect more easily with the development teams in order to fluidify the work within a company or any other structure.

The Jira project management tool is the number one software development tool for agile teams, but Atlassian wants to go even further, by designing an edition dedicated to all teams: ” Empowering technical teams alone is not enough. One disconnected team or department can tie up an entire business, regardless of its location within an organization. Uniting every team on the same tools is more important than ever. That’s why today we’re extending the power of Jira to all teams in an organization.”

To wit: Jira Work Management benefits from all the native features of the Jira product family, including shared workflows, automation for daily tasks and advanced privacy controls to protect your data.

New views designed to make work easier

Atlassian offers new ways to move work from “to do” to “done”. These new views are intended to make work management easier and to have a clearer global view of projects.

  • a list view: you can add, update, sort or order items in a very quick way.
  • a calendar view: you can view deadlines, easily update your projects, and plan more quickly.
  • a timeline view: this is a refinement of the traditional Gantt chart, designed to better visualize the dependencies between workflows. The following data have been added: the person assigned and the status of the task.
  • a table view (Kanban): this view allows you to display tasks in columns, and to visualize their progress in a logic of “to do” to “completed”.
  • a form view: you can easily create forms via drag & drop and collect the necessary responses. This reduces friction and disconnection between teams.

Below you can see examples of views:

A new edition designed to increase team productivity

To facilitate the work of the teams, Atlassian also offers :

  • 23 new business project models adapted to the business teams,
  • an interface with vocabulary more adapted to the profiles of teams that are not “technical”: HR, marketing, sales, finance, etc,
  • the left pane highlights relevant features: new views, forms, and replaces development-specific features,
  • A new enterprise automation library to create custom rules for all use cases. The automation even connects with Slack and Microsoft Teams.

Atlassian aims to continue developing the project, and announces the arrival of many updates and new features over the coming year. The company details the features that are expected to be deployed soon: advanced functionality for all project views, optimized reporting for advanced analytics, and native approvals for faster job sign-off and execution.

In terms of pricing, there is a free version for 10 users. The first paid offer starts at $5 per user per month. The rate is degressive according to the number of users.
