Jira work management represents the solution that allows business teams such as Finance, sales or marketing to collaborate with technical teams within Jira. It has so many features like the List view, the Calendar view, the Timeline view, the Boards, Workflows, Forms, Project templates, Dashboards and reports and automation. Jira Core is very well capable of increasing productivity of the teams through centralization of information through these different types of views and the automation allows the teams to invest less time in configuration and more time in execution of work.

  • More clarification on where to find useful tools and resources for new users.
  • Breakdown of Projects, Tasks, Sub-tasks, bugs is hard to follow and cannot be changed once created.
  • The ability to customize the dashboard/home page to fit the needs of individuals could use some work.

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.
