Business Process Management with Jira Work Management
Designed for teams, Jira Work Management has preconfigured processes for every department.
Teams that use Jira Work Management include:
- Human Resources
Notwithstanding the above, you can model any business process in Jira Work Management .
Workflow your team’s Projects and Tasks
Out-of-the-box (OOTB) business process templates allow you to quickly setup and customize your workflows to match that of your teams. By using workflows to track every step of the company’s processes, you can account for every team’s performance.
Monitor Tasks with Granular Details
With task definitions that include statuses, labels, comments, and attachments, management is easier and performed from a single place. With sufficient granularity and automated workflow step notifications, you eliminate the need for frequent meetings.
Report on Performance
Jira Work Management allows teams to stay focused and deliver their work on time.
Collaborate with Team Member Handles
Using @mentions, you can quickly involve resources on any task. Let cross-functional collaboration flourish by including Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) at the right moment during the process.
Boards Organize Projects for Better Oversight
Boards improve the feedback and oversight of the entire business process. As part of the cloud-deployed Jira Work Management solution, you can structure the columns according to the team’s needs. With boards, teams have a complete overview of all their tasks and their current status. Moving a task from one column to the next will automatically update its status.
The cards show the what, who, when, and where for each task in the project. Users can also quickly filter their tasks according to a keyword search, due date, or by assignment.
Mobile Apps Keep You Productive at any Time and from Anywhere
With Jira for iPhone and Jira for Android included in the cloud-deployed environment, your team can update and keep track of their tasks while they are on the go. With Jira Work Management connected to their mobile devices, team members can:
- Check the project’s progress from the boards in exactly the same way as their desktop workstations.
- Give comments and provide immediate feedback on tasks and boards.
- Be notified of any updates or comments that specifically mention them or @mention other members when needed.
- Query, move, update, or add videos and photos to tasks.
The mobile apps are available from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Note that the Android App is still in the beta phase of development.
