The Google Workspace keeps improving, even in the summer month of August. Our colleague Max has reviewed and compiled all the new features from the previous month for you.
Documentation in software development is not exactly the greatest of joys for many teams. Nevertheless, the documentation of a software product must of course be as complete and comprehensive as possible. The app AutoPage has set out to take much of the pain out of manual documentation work for teams. It makes it possible to automatically create Confluence pages directly from Jira on which the current contents of the processes are documented. In this post, we’ll go through the initial setup of AutoPage step by step. Once you have done these things, your team can use Jira as usual – with the difference that the further development is now automatically mapped in Confluence.
FlowDingo is not just any task management app. The result of a collaborative development effort between Seibert Media and Kantega SSO, the core of FlowDingo’s design is enabling teams to order tasks in a workflow, and then provide a visual overview of that flow within a ticket. It helps Jira users track the myriad of dependencies between an issue’s tasks. Now available for download in the Atlassian Marketplace, we think you’ll enjoy the functionality of an app that integrates many of the features of a full project management tool, without all the fuss. And it’s right within your Jira!
The world of work has changed and many companies are now organising themselves differently than before the pandemic, which has accelerated many developments – including the acceptance of distributed teams. The new product suite Atlassian Together steps up to support organisations in their transformation to an open, agile, transparent collaboration culture and to provide them with the appropriate toolset for modern collaboration in teams and across teams.
With the modern-day workforce often being completely remote or a hybrid form of remote and in-office, quality management becomes more difficult. You can’t always pick up the phone or walk to someone’s desk. To be able to see “who did what and when” in Confluence, Properties now lets you view certain changes in the metadata so you don’t have to wait for that colleague from overseas to come online anymore.
Kanban boards are a great tool to help keep your processes streamlined and organized. If you’re using Confluence, you can now add Kanban boards to your wiki pages with the power of the new Properties Board View. Read on to find out more.
The larger the company, the harder it gets to see where you are in the grand scheme of things. The best tool to see this is an org chart. And luckily, Properties’ latest update adds just that.
During the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969, an error message occured. And when things go wrong in such a high-stakes mission, they can go horribly wrong. Astronauts wouldn’t be able to come back to Earth. But thanks to the fact that the ground crew had checklists to work through when the error flashed up, they knew exactly what to do. And that’s why checklists are so important. They make sure you don’t forget anything when the stakes are high.
In 2011, Netflix made quite a mistake with a rebranding, which could have been prevented had they communicated properly. Which brings us to our favorite issue tracking system: Jira. This tool uses custom fields, which can be customized with Awesome Custom Fields to make sure no one ever oversees any important information, improving communication.
In every company, countless activities take place day in and day out that have already been processed many times in this or a similar form. And yet, in the same companies, many things go wrong. That’s why teams work with checklists. They explain how routine processes work. They map standardized processes that have been thought through beforehand so that they can subsequently be processed as efficiently and seamlessly as possible. But not all checklists are the same. And not all checklist tools are equal.
