Overall Satisfaction with JIRA Software

My organization (about 45 people) is currently either using Jira or is considering the use of Jira to manage tasks and keep a record of past, present, and current projects. Jira provides us a means to better monitor our work, ensuring something is not forgotten. With Jira, it is easy for us as a team to see what each person is working on, the priority of tasks, how many of a certain we have completed, who completed what tasks and how many, and much more. Additionally, the dashboard feature of Jira creates easy reporting, allowing me to condense my work into a manner that my manager and director can use to share accomplishments of the team.
  • Task Management - Keep Track of Tasks
  • Priority Management - Prioritize Tasks
  • Reporting - Create Reports That YOU Need
  • Customization - Better customization for specific needs
  • Ease of Access - More training or helpful tips within the program
  • Task Management
  • Reporting Benefits
  • Communication Enhancement
  • File Sharing
Depending on use and knowledge, both Jira and Microsoft SharePoint allow for task management, file sharing, communication, reporting, etc. However, out of the box, Jira is ready to go, whereas SharePoint requires more customization to get to the same point. Although Jira could be made more user-friendly, it is far superior on initial first-time use.
If are in a situation where you have multiple tasks that need to be addressed, Jira can provide a means to track and prioritize those tasks. Get rid of jotting notes on paper or sticky notes. With Jira, it's very easy to track what work needs to be done and reflect on work that has been completed.
