What is most valuable?

What is most valuable?

The most important is the Agile management, because we use Agile in our everyday tasks. Also, the task manager is important.

How has it helped my organization?

Before JIRA we had to create our PRDs, our product definitions requirements in another feature, then using another tool to organize the combine… more»

What needs improvement?

Right now, the Task Management feature and Confluence are separate from JIRA itself. So, we have this problem where sometimes these modules don't… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I used just Excel sheets. JIRA was a major improvement for a variety of reasons listed in other answers.

What other advice do I have?

Learn every module you use (a lot!) before jumping to other modules, like we did, with JIRA Testing and Atlassian Confluence, because the… more»

What needs improvement?
