Scale up and structure Jira issue hierarchies

As your Jira instance and projects get more complicated, you need a tool to help you keep things simple.

If the size of your teams, and the complexity of your projects grows, it’s far too easy for things to fall between the cracks. For every project finished on time, there is a heroic and manual effort being done behind the scenes by the project managers.

Making sure no tasks are forgotten, and putting together reports for all who need them takes a lot of hard work and careful organization.

Resource planning in Jira has always required mastery of Jira Query Language (JQL), and multi-tabbing between several Jira dashboards.

Sprints that span multiple Jira projects, dashboards, issues, and teams should be easy to organize, simple to report on, and visible to all.

Now, with Panorama for Jira, it’s never been easier to organize Jira issue hierarchies the way you want them.

Better plan and monitor progress with a Jira issue hierarchy structure.

Product and project managers need an easy to setup dashboard that gives an overview of cross-functional and interdepartmental teams in Jira.

With Panorama for Jira, everything can be structured under one Jira issue hierarchy for efficient insights, and reporting of the actual business project.

Structure Jira issues and sub-tasks the way you need, because it is vital for a better understanding of your progress. You can group Jira tickets by multiple issue fields, such as their status, sprint, assignee, project, reporter, or issue type.

Out of the box, Jira’s definition of a Project rarely aligns with how you’d want your projects to work. A feature launch, a marketing event, an acquisition, or a webinar would all require members of multiple departments their own dashboards to be set up by a Jira admin and then saved by each sub-team member.

With Panorama for Jira, you can organize your work in a Jira hierarchy view, using directories created directly in Jira, and by simply moving your issues to the grouping you need.

Building a multilevel Jira hierarchy containing all aspects of your project plan from various departments can now be seen in one view, with simple drag and drop functionality. Simply use Jira Query Language (JQL) to search for the issues and subtasks you need. You can then add them to your project, or even create new issues from within the Panorama for Jira view.

To sum up:

Accurately summing up the estimated time across Jira tasks and sub-tasks is necessary for reporting, planning, resourcing and reviewing. Thankfully, it’s now both possible and easy.

Would you like an easy snapshot of how many story points have been completed, and how many remain in Jira?

Panorama lets you see the total number of story points in a directory or an epic, and provides a useful summary of how many have been completed so you can easily monitor your progress in Jira.

If you prefer to track estimated time remaining in Jira, Panorama does that too.

Would an easily shareable dashboard be useful for updating team members and senior managers?

Panorama makes the right Jira dashboards easy to share between team members, and you can even restrict access, as you need.

Would it be useful to know how much time your team spent fighting bugs and how much was spent on developing new features on the last sprint?

Simply group by issue type in Panorama for Jira, and now you can.

The Atlassian Marketplace now offers a solution that gives you all these super powers and more.
