  2. Atlassian are raising the prices for their cloud services on October 12th, which is perfectly ok. What is a bit strange though is that they for some reason seem to purposely try to hide just how much they are raising the prices. It does not say in the email, and the link takes you to the FAQ rather than the price list. A price list that only have the new prices and not the old for comparison. It is a bit odd. This seems to become a norm for Atlassian lately, to hide information and prevent comparison. I don't like it and I don't like the direction Atlassian is taking in terms of communication and information in the last few years. Atlassian used to be good and open about their prices, but lately it feels that they are doing everything they can to obfuscate and hide information purposely. I am not sure if that is because they have a strategy to adopt dark patterns in their UX to prevent a clear view into the actual costs (like airlines do), or if it is just some bad practice on their part implemented by someone who don't understand the customers. For example, why not include the new pricing in the email you send out to the customers? You know what products the customer own as it is part of your database, so it is not rocket science to add customized templates based on product ownership. If people could do that 15 years ago when sending out printed catalogs that had your car and your color on the front page, then I am sure that Atlassian can set up a simple database that can send targeted content to product segments. Even if you can't because you have not done the work, or your master data is crap, you can still send the entire pricing table, or at least link to it! Instead, you send out a letter that say nothing with a link to a page that does not have the pricing information I am looking for. Not even the FAQ landing page that Atlassian link to have a link in the text or any form of directional que to the single most important question clients will have when landing here: What are the new prices. Sure, there is a link component to the left, but nothing that indicate that these are related to the new pricing structure. It's just sloppy and poor UX in my opinion. Once you click in to see the pricing tables, you would expect to see the new prices and the old one for comparison, right? Nope. Atlassian shows only the new prices. If you are anything like me, then you never really pay attention to the actual price per tier, you know your monthly cost, right? So it would be nice with a place to see your new cost based on the new prices... but nope. You just have to wait for the next bill to see what the new price might be. As you can see, the start plans are going to be shafted once more. So if you have one, hold on to it because it looks like they will increase the price on that tier with 750%. Now, it is not very difficult to present the information on the increase in a more useful way. Just add the information on both the old and new price, along with the changes in both value and percentage. This is what Jira Cloud Standard looks like, for example, if you spend 2 minutes on it: I think this could be a problem because the person in charge of the INFORMATION is a designer used to work with PRESENTATION. Having tables that look good is one thing, answering the questions of the people looking for answers is another. If you present new prices that will affect people's decision to remain a client or not, then you better do better than this Atlassian. This was not good, so step it up. Ok?

  4. Priorities View File A simple icon set for Priorities I use in my own Jira instance. It uses colors to indicate priority / Severity ranging from full red in the blocker and then scale down in the color range down to purple for the lowest. The symbols are simplified as well to make them as visible as possible. Included: Blocker - Full red with a blocked icon as the indicator. Highest - 7 sided background in deep red with a white exclamation mark. High - Orange triangle pointing upwards. Medium - Green circle Low - Blue triangle pointing downwards. Lowest - Three purple dashes. Submitter ©Jimi Wikman Submitted 02/04/2020 Category Graphics
  5. In the coming months we will see some changes to the navigation in Jira and Confluence for the cloud versions. This after a round of feedback was done in July this year on the new experience. This change will roll out slowly and you can delay the change if you need time to prepare the users for the change. There has been some negative feedback regarding the current navigation in Jira and Confluence cloud as it is a bit difficult to use. This is why a new experience was designed and tested during the summer by 350+ users. The feedback on the new navigation was positive and so now it is going live to cloud users in a slow rollout. This is a rollback to the old navigation experience which is good as it will make the transition from Server and DC versions easier. I like the new apps and people sections in the navigation as well. That should make it easier to group things to keep navigation organized. The fact that Jira and Confluence now get a uniform navigation is also excellent. On the documentation page for the new Confluence navigation we find more details on the new navigation and it's design. App switcher - Switch to other Atlassian Cloud apps, like Jira, and go to recent Confluence spaces and Jira projects. Confluence logo and name - Click this to go to the Confluence Home page. Home - Begin your Confluence journey and reorient yourself when you’re moving on to a new piece of work by easily accessing the spaces, pages, and updates that are important to you. Recent - Access pages you’ve recently visited and worked on as well as pages saved as draft or starred. Spaces - Get to spaces you’ve recently visited and starred. People - Search for people on your site by visiting the people directory. Apps - Access content from apps like Analytics, Calendars for Confluence, or Questions for Confluence. Create - Click to create a new page, either blank or from a template. Search - Find pages, spaces, and other content. Notifications - Find out what's happening in Confluence and other Atlassian apps, like Jira. Help - Get online help, and find out what's new in your Atlassian Cloud apps. Your profile and settings - Go to or create your personal space, find out about the new Confluence experience, and adjust your Confluence settings. New Homepage In addition to the new navigation we will also get a new start page, or home page as it is called. This will appear in both Jira and Confluence cloud at the same time as we will see the new navigation. For Confluence it will give an overview over: Spaces - Get back to the spaces you care about, starred or recently visited Recent pages - Find pages you’ve drafted, recently published, visited, or starred All updates - View the updates across your site The Home page for Jira follow that principle, but is a bit slimmed down. I think there are more things that can go in this view and I hope we will see the same structure as for Confluence in the future. So instead of spaces we would have projects and then I would like to have a list of favorite boards somewhere.
  6. The Roadmap feature in Jira Cloud's NextGen projects is getting three new features. While all good additions, the question still remain who these new features are for and to what extent these new features will make people move over to NextGen projects. NextGen for Jira Cloud is in a strange place as it is not really defined what is can and should be used for. The Roadmap feature is in a similar place as it fall somewhere between Portfolio for Jira and the Roadmap planner macro in Confluence. These 3 new features are an improvement and a good indication on where Atlassian are going. The question is just how fast these new features are coming out and if it appeal to the target audience. Drill down into the details The first feature is the ability to open up the Epic and see the underlying tasks. This is a much needed feature that was heavily requested and also one I spoke with Atlassian about earlier this fall. This is a good feature and a good step to improve the roadmap, but is still in need of further refinement. We still only have Epics as the starting point, which will limit the use of Roadmaps. Opening up the subtasks will only show their status at the moment, which is useful, but not what many want. Many still want a Gant view where the sum of the subtasks should make up the time in the Epic. This is not possible at the moment and I find it interesting that Atlassian has chosen to follow an Agile first approach to the Roadmaps, which means it will not be very useful for the majority of the companies using Atlassian's products today. Add new tasks directly in the Roadmap Another great feature that was much requested is the ability to create new sub tasks directly in the Roadmap. This way we can build up a full stack of tasks for a project in one view, which is excellent for portfolio and project planning purposes. The fact that we do not get full Gantt view for the sub tasks makes this a little less useful for time and resource planning however. Filter your Epics and Tasks The ability to use different filters is a must for any Portfolio, but even roadmaps benefit from filtering options. In this release we get the filters for issue status and assignee, which is a good start. I would like to see some more filters like dependencies and of course issues that are behind the time schedule. The question is just who this Roadmap feature is for though as then we are moving more into project management and Portfolio management and Atlassian has previously stated that the Roadmap is for teams. It's a good start, but... I am still not sure where NextGen projects are heading, which means it's hard to say if the features are great or poor. We know that Roadmaps will be ported over to the Classic project types as well, but that will make things even more confusing. This is unfortunately a common issue with Atlassian as they are getting more and more fractured with no clear indication on structure or strategy. Roadmaps for me is something that should stay as a team tool for small teams to give an overview of the current work. To cater to that need Roadmaps could benefit from a few changes. The first would be to change the basic structure and allow the view to be in any level. That means that I should be able to use Stories rather than Epics as Epics are just containers and not work tasks. The majority of issues are not connected to Epics in most teams, especially if you work in a Kanban setting for continuous improvements for example. The second would be to go full gantt, or rather to give the option to go full gantt. Not every team need or will use estimation in issues, but most do. Without a full gantt the view of issues will not be as useful as a progress overview tool. It's like saying that I have a container of a certain size and in that container I have put five items. On the question if the items will fit my only answerr will be "I don't know", which is in many organizations not an acceptable answer. The third would be to add dependencies on issues and not just on Epics and extend the data to also show data from other projects. In most organizations dependencies are not within the team itself, but to surrounding teams. Even if the view is for the team it makes sense that I should be able to see what other teams could be affected. The fourth would be to ensure that Roadmaps becomes a granular part of a larger view. Right now it is an isolated feature, which means that we will have different data for different levels of the organization. This will lead to miscommunication within the organization as teams will say Epics, which will mean something very different to Program managers and Portfolio managers and so on. As more and more organization add SAFe to their processes it is important that the team view is part of the greater whole. I am sure we will so many great additions to Roadmaps in 2020 and hopefully many of the questions we have regarding Roadmaps and NextGen projects will get answers then. Until then these three new features are welcome additions that I am sure will help many teams improve their work processes.
  7. This is a repost from Atlassian's blog where the latest updates to the Atlassian cloud platform is posted. It is reposted here since the Atlassian blog does not have an RSS feed and so we can discuss the changes to the Atlassian Cloud architecture. You can follow these posts withe the tag "atlassian cloud changes". Atlassian Cloud Your cloud-hosted products are supported by the Atlassian Cloud platform. This section usually includes changes related to multiple Atlassian Cloud products, site administration, and user management. Email users with suggested account changes From the Change details button, you can suggest that a user changes their account details to make their profile more consistent and easier to identify. Read more about administering Atlassian accounts. Give your users a Trusted permission From a user's Permission options, select Trusted to give certain users more responsibility. These users will be able to install and configure new products on your site and invite new users themselves. Claim accounts after verifying a domain To start managing accounts on your domain, we’ve included an additional step that requires you to claim accounts after verifying that you own the domain. From the table on the Domains page, click Claim accounts next to the verified domain. Read more about verifying a domain. Set your language and time zone for Jira and Confluence in your Atlassian account profile Rather than individually setting your language and time zone in Jira and Confluence, these preferences will soon come from your Atlassian account profile. Visit your account preferences to update these settings. It may take up to 10 mins before your updated preferences are reflected in Jira and Confluence. Jira platform Changes in this section usually apply to all Jira products. We'll tell you in the change description if something is only for a specific Jira product. New issue view: Print an issue or export it to Microsoft Word or XML Print or export individual issues in the new issue view. Open an issue and choose more actions (•••) at the top-right to print it or export it to Microsoft Word (DOC) or XML format. Changing the "Issues and filters" navigation item to "Filters" In preparation for the rollout of our improved navigation for Jira Cloud, we've updated the "Issues and filters" menu item in the Jira sidebar to simply be "Filters." When we move to the new horizontal navigation, this name will better reflect what you'll find in the menu—filters, filters, and more filters. This is purely a label change at this point, and won't change any functionality. New user profile cards When you hover over someone’s name in directories, on dashboards, and in user picker fields, you’ll now start to see rich profile cards with more information and a link to the user’s profile (if you have permission to see it). Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog You can now manage epics on the backlog of your next-gen project via the Epics panel, similar to how epic management works in classic Jira Software projects. Changes you make in the panel on the backlog will reflect on the Roadmap, and vice-versa. Advanced search (JQL): Search for content updated by a specific user Use the updatedBy() function to search for issues that were updated by a specific user, optionally within the specified time range. For example, if you want to find issues updated by John Smith between June and September 2018, enter issuekey IN updatedBy(jsmith, "2018/06/01", "2018/08/31"). Read more about the updatedBy() function. Jira Software We're rolling out a new type of project known as next-gen. By default, any Jira Software licensed user can create their own next-gen project. These projects don't affect existing Jira projects, shared configurations, or your schemes. You can manage who's allowed to create next-gen projects with the new Create independent projects global permission. Read more about next-gen projects. GitHub app on the Atlassian Marketplace We've partnered with GitHub to build a new and improved integration, which you can install at the Atlassian Marketplace. This replaces the DVCS connector in Jira's system settings. Current GitHub integrations set up under the old method will continue to work, but new integrations must be set up using the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. We're rolling out this update gradually, so it may not be on your Jira Cloud site yet. This won't affect GitHub Enterprise integrations, which must still be set up via the DVCS connector. Next-gen: Roadmap issue hierarchy You can now expand an epic on your roadmap to see its child issues and their statuses. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap. Next-gen: Create child issues on your roadmap You can now add child issues directly on your roadmap. Just hover over an epic, click the + icon, and give your issue a name. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap. Next-gen: Environment system field in JSW Add Jira’s built-in Environment field to your issue types in next-gen projects. In your project, go to Project settings > Issue types and drag the Environment field into the Description section of the issue layout. Jira Service Desk New issue view for Jira Service Desk The new issue view groups key actions and information in a logical way, making it easier for you to scan and update requests. Learn more about the new issue view. Use keyboard shortcuts in your queues Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate around your queues and get your work done faster.

  8. The requests to get Portfolio for Jira for Cloud users have been loud and finally Atlassian released a Cloud version. They also made a very odd choice to rename Portfolio for Jira to Advanced Roadmaps and place it behind the Cloud Premium barrier. Portfolio for Jira has long been the better choice for Jira Server and Jira DC users. The features have been perfectly suited for managers to keep an overview over large programs and initiatives with relative ease. As such it has been the envy of Cloud users for years and it comes as no surprise that Atlassian would port this to Cloud given their focus on the cloud platform lately. Renaming Portfolio for Jira is also no surprise as it confuse managers with two portfolio products where the high level Portfolio tool Jira Align is the product Atlassian seem to want to focus on. Renaming it to Advanced Roadmaps is however a very strange choice as it is not a simple roadmap tool. It also make the naming confusion shift from Portfolio to Roadmaps as Cloud users have been using the limited Roadmaps feature for quite some time. The new Advanced Roadmaps is only available for Cloud Premium users. This makes sense as Atlassian want to push users into their new price model. Currently there is not much that would warrant double the price for Cloud Premium so Atlassian need something that is enticing enough for users to make the shift. Advanced Roadmaps could be one of those features, but they need more as Advanced Roadmaps cost $2.3/user and month at it's lowest level and Cloud Premium cost an additional $7/user and month. Feature wise Advanced Roadmaps is still great with the two main selling points of great overview and the ability to scale the issues with more levels. Here are some of the selling points from Atlassian: With the changes coming to Roadmaps where all projects will get them, and not just Next-Gen projects, combined with the promise that Advanced Roadmaps will somehow be connected to a more comprehensive whole this could be a pretty good thing for Cloud Premium users. Adding Advanced Roadmaps to Cloud Premium will now add the ability to scale issue types beyond the standard 3 levels, which is something people have asked for for a very long time. Will it be enough to warrant the high price tag for Cloud Premium? I doubt that as Advanced Roadmaps is only really useful when you pass a certain number of teams. Doubling the price tag will probably discourage most low to mid-range clients. The fact that you can only have a 7 day test version and that you need to setup a new cloud instance to even test this if you are on a regular cloud plan is also a problem. With more features added into Cloud Premium however I think more and more will make the shift over to that. Overall this is a good new addition and package it with the Cloud Premium offer will make it more accessible and therefore used, which is a good thing. It's a bit sad to see Atlassian being so aggressive in their way of forcing cloud users into their Premium tier that is making some old customers a bit annoyed, but I think it will be good in the long run.

  10. Automation in Jira have long been requested by the customers and now it is finally here for all Jira Cloud customers. This new feature is actually not new, but it is the popular Automation for Jira app that was purchased by Atlassian in 2019. Not only is this an amazing addition, it is also completely free for all Jira Cloud users. Automation for Jira was purchased by Atlassian back in October 2019 and in March 2020 the automation functionality was made available natively to every single Jira Cloud instance at every tier. In late March the first DevOps triggers was released with the promise of new functionality coming soon. For server users there is still the old app for now. With the new automation feature that is built into Jira Cloud you can now automate a lot of actions. Not only will this free up time for you and your team, it is also super easy to setup with no coding what so ever! This is pretty impressive of course, but when you extend this across other products like Bitbucket and Github, then you get something very nice indeed. I have used the Automation for Jira app before and really liked it's simple, yet powerful features. It is really, really good that this now comes as a standard feature for all Jira Cloud customers.

  12. Requirements & Test Management for Jira MARKETPLACE.ATLASSIAN.COM Bring the whole software project right inside your Jira Decided to take this for a test run. Has anyone used it, or is currently using it?
  13. Atlassian has now announced that the cloud versions of Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core will be available for small teams for free. This extent the free offer for small teams where Atlassian already offer free licenses for Trello, Bitbucket and Opsgenie. This announcement is not unexpected, but it comes with great timing now that so many are forced to work on remote due to the Corona situation. Allowing small companies the opportunity to collaborate using Jira, Confluence and Service Desk is a great opportunity to get organized for remote work. The licenses that are now free are the same tier as the ones that was previously available for $10. That means that you get Jira, Opsgenie and Confluence with 10 users for free. For Jira Service Desk you get 3 agents for free as well. This may seem small, but for many small companies this will be a welcome solution to get organized for remote work for free. If you already have a license for these tiers, then you can go into your administration section and change the plans under manage subscriptions. Just click on change next to your current plan and select the free plan. If you are a small company that want to know how you can use this opportunity, then please add a comment here or in the discussion forum and I will help you with your setup for free. You can sign up for the free services a the link https://www.atlassian.com/software/free.
  14. This is a repost from Atlassian's blog where the latest updates to the Atlassian cloud platform is posted. It is reposted here since the Atlassian blog does not have an RSS feed and so we can discuss the changes to the Atlassian Cloud architecture. You can follow these posts withe the tag "atlassian cloud changes". Atlassian Cloud Your cloud-hosted products are supported by the Atlassian Cloud platform. This section usually includes changes related to multiple Atlassian Cloud products, site administration, and user management. Email users with suggested account changes From the Change details button, you can suggest that a user changes their account details to make their profile more consistent and easier to identify. Read more about administering Atlassian accounts. Give your users a Trusted permission From a user's Permission options, select Trusted to give certain users more responsibility. These users will be able to install and configure new products on your site and invite new users themselves. Claim accounts after verifying a domain To start managing accounts on your domain, we’ve included an additional step that requires you to claim accounts after verifying that you own the domain. From the table on the Domains page, click Claim accounts next to the verified domain. Read more about verifying a domain. Jira platform Changes in this section usually apply to all Jira products. We'll tell you in the change description if something is only for a specific Jira product. Need help with next-gen projects or service desks? Try searching for what you need We’ve improved how to get help with your next-gen project or service desk. We’ve moved our documentation into Jira Software and Jira Service Desk to help you find relevant help to your questions. To search for help content in next-gen projects or service desks: If not already there, navigate to your next-gen project or service desk. From the navigation bar, select Help. When you reach out for help, Jira will suggest relevant content based on the screen you’re currently viewing. To find other help, use the search bar. Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog You can now manage epics on the backlog of your next-gen project via the Epics panel, similar to how epic management works in classic Jira Software projects. Changes you make in the panel on the backlog will reflect on the Roadmap, and vice-versa. Find issues you've recently worked on We’ve added a new Worked on tab to the Your work page. This tab lets you quickly find and resume work on issues you’ve updated recently. Head to Your work > Worked on to get started. Improved navigation in Jira Cloud We’ve created an improved navigation experience that always appears at the top of the screen, with clearly labeled buttons and menus to help you search, create, and resume your work. Find out more about our improved navigation experience and when you can try it out. New issue view: Improved date formatting in the history feed Dates in the history are now more consistent. They’ll correctly show when changes happened relative to your time zone and be translated into the language you’ve chosen for Jira. Select your email notifications for issue activity from personal settings Jira sends email notifications when certain activities occur on issues. In your personal settings, you can now choose whether you want these notifications. If you do, you can toggle notifications for issue activity when you’re a watcher, reporter, assignee on an issue, when someone mentions you, and when you make changes to an issue. Learn more about choosing email notifications. Issue collector no longer matches the submitter's user session to make them the reporter We’ve adapted our issue collectors to the Chrome browser’s new cookie security features, but have had to change how they work. The issue collector no longer matches a submitter’s user session to make them the reporter. You can still match them by email address. To improve issue security, project and issue keys are no longer displayed in the success message after submitting feedback on an issue collector (unless the project is open to anyone on the web). Learn more about using the issue collector. Jira Software We're rolling out a new type of project known as next-gen. By default, any Jira Software licensed user can create their own next-gen project. These projects don't affect existing Jira projects, shared configurations, or your schemes. You can manage who's allowed to create next-gen projects with the new Create independent projects global permission. Read more about next-gen projects. GitHub app on the Atlassian Marketplace We've partnered with GitHub to build a new and improved integration, which you can install at the Atlassian Marketplace. This replaces the DVCS connector in Jira's system settings. Current GitHub integrations set up under the old method will continue to work, but new integrations must be set up using the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. We're rolling out this update gradually, so it may not be on your Jira Cloud site yet. This won't affect GitHub Enterprise integrations, which must still be set up via the DVCS connector. Kanban boards just got faster Is your team so productive, their 'Done' column is always overflowing? Too many issues on a board can slow it down and make you scroll way too much. To fix this, we’re bringing what we’ve codenamed “Fast Kanban”—a way to keep your board fresh and clean, and as quick as a flash. The idea behind it is simple. The ‘Done’ column will now show only issues that have been updated (in any way) in the last 2 weeks, hiding the rest. Less noise on your board means happier teams. Any project admin can change the retention period, or choose to display all issues, if they prefer. Learn more Quickly copy a link to an issue in your next-gen project backlog When viewing your backlog, you can now copy a link to an issue to your clipboard. To try it out: Navigate to your next-gen project backlog. Locate the issue you want a link for. Select More (…) > Copy issue link.

Remind agents to update empty fields when moving a request in your next-gen service desk We added another rule to your next-gen service desk workflows. Now, you can prompt your agents to complete an empty field when they use a specific transition to change an issue’s status. The rule removes a burden on your teams to remember to fill in specific fields until they matter. It keeps them focused on the important work of helping your customers. To learn more about the rule, and get an example of how to use it, check out our complete documentation on next-gen workflow rules. Confluence You can now create spaces on Android mobile Android users can now create spaces on-the-go in the Confluence mobile app. You can find this action in the overflow menu (•••) in the top right corner of the app. Your editing experience just got an upgrade The new Confluence editor allows anyone to create beautiful, powerful pages effortlessly. Check out the editor roadmap to learn more. End of support for nested tables As we work on creating a more stable editing experience, we will no longer support nested tables - that is, a table within a list, block quotes, or another table. Existing nested tables will not be affected, you simply won't be able to create new nested tables.

  17. Atlassian promoted their Free version of Jira Cloud recently as their way to help remote teams during the Corona crisis. Like many I thought this was great and I moved over from the normal trial version I had. Today all my projects was gone and I just realized that the free version is severely reduced in function. It is in my opinion nothing more than a money grab to lure people in and make them upgrade to the $10 version. To trick people to sign up for a service without telling them that you are limiting the experience is a shady thing to do. To remove something as important as permissions for no apparent reason other than forcing people into buying another license is just greedy. The $10 version has always been something of a gift from Atlassian where they donated the money they made to charity. It feel so bad that now that they add a free version, which actually does not impact Atlassian's profit in any way, they water it down and remove features. That is just bad. I don't really care if Atlassian offer a limited version, but make sure you clearly market it as such. On the free site they do not mention this at all. I may have missed this when I made the change, but I did not see this when making the change from the standard $10 I was using and I sure as hell did not get any warning that the custom permissions I have configured would not be usable in the free version. I think it's unworthy for a company like Atlassian to abandon their previous practice of providing a $10 version that allow people to try out their products before they commit to a larger license model. To go out and promote the free version as some form of gift to help people to collaborate in an open and transparent way and they reduce the product by removing permissions is just not what I would expect from Atlassian. I can see no other reason than that this is a shady way to introduce people to Jira and then force them to upgrade to a "full version". That is such a long way from the caring and giving Atlassian of old... So if you have a license with custom permissions, if you want to manage permissions or if you like me educate people and need public access, then do not use the watered down and limited free version. If you are looking for a free tool to manage your tasks I am afraid I will not recommend Jira anymore... I am very disappointed.

  19. For many, many years visual designers have been working outside the workflow of IT. The way of working differ a lot from the more controlled IT deliveries, which has meant that design often comes as design drops rather than as a part of an Agile workflow. Today we have many tools that can change that, but how do you do that and what is the benefit? For many years visual design have been a messy affair with naming convention and external cloud storage where versions get put into a named folder structure. Sure it has been improved with tools that allow collaboration such as Figma and Invision. Handover to development have also improved with tools like Zeplin and Avocode. Still, the handover process, when it even exist, is far from streamlined and it causes quite a bit of a mess. Even with collaboration tools and development handover there is still no control over changes to the visual designs. Versioning, automatic or even manual is not the same as version control after all. Why is it important to be able to control versions? The reason is that in a continuous delivery situation design changes need to be controlled and agreed upon before they are turned into code. This is especially important if you do not work in a design system or at least in an Atomic Design pattern. In order to fit into a continuous delivery way of working, which is where I think most companies are moving towards, we as designers need to fit into the way development work already. So how do we do that without compromising the exploratory nature of our craft? Let us first define what it is that we need to do in order to sync visual design work with development work: Collaboration - We need a way to quickly get feedback on visual designs so we can adapt and adjust. This comes from stakeholders and developers so it must fit both groups. Controlled deliveries - We need a way to deliver visual design in a controlled way that is not only easy to understand, but also matches the work of the developers. Handover - We need a way to handover visual design to development that is easy to work with for the developers. Most of these are done today mostly in meetings. That is wasteful and it require a lot of time management. It also require that there are meeting spaces suitable for this work. In some cases it require that everyone is in the same location or that specific technical setups are made for external communication. There has to be a better solution? Indeed there is and it's not really that much of a pain to begin with this workflow for visual deign either. We will take advantage of the tools you most likely are already using and we will tweak the workflow a bit and add a few things that you may not use just yet. This workflow is for Sketch, but you can probably find similar way of working if you work with Adobe, Figma or the Affinity suite to mention a few alternatives. Atomic Design The first step is to start thinking of your design the same way that the developers (hopefully) is. By organizing your visual design according to Atomic Design you will have a one to one connection to the code. This is extra useful if you are using a design system as then the design changes you make will be reflected correctly in both the visual design and the code. Nest your symbols following the basic structure of atomic design and you will make the developers happy as they can simply make the same changes you do on the atoms and molecules. You will also find it much easier to continuously work from the smallest entity up as it makes creating new design elements fast and easy Abstract Abstract is a great tool that allow you to work in branches, just like the development team is doing. This allow you to commit to designs for delivery, but without restricting you from exploring alternatives at the same time. This is done by having different branches where only the Master branch is actually the one that is put in production. The way Abstract work fit very nicely into the development workflow. This makes it much easier to collaborate on the same cadence and it ensures that only the visual design that has been agreed upon by everyone involved is being put into production. This is done by using the approval process built into Abstract any time you want to push design to the master branch. The final part of abstract is the handover where the developers get an overview of the design elements that makes sense to them. Things like measurements, color codes and more are all easily accessible from Abstract. There are other tools specifically designed for this, like Zeplin and Avocode if the handover features in Abstract is not enough. For me Abstract hold all the information I need, but every team have different need. Invision DSM Invision DSM is a design management system and it is where the final design we push to master get placed as the one truth. Not only will this be a fully functional documentation space, but you can also work with the components directly in Sketch by drag and drop. This allow you to constantly work with the latest visual design. You can integrate Invision DSM with your code as well to automatically push code directly into the documentation using Storybook. If you do not have Storybook, then you can manually add code to each component in the documentation in Invision DSM. If you want to extent the developer handover you can connect Invision DSM to Invision Inspect as well. Invision DSM is also part of a greater package so you get access to tools like Prototype to make your designs come to life and Freehand that is a collaboration space that is kind of like a mix of sketch and a whiteboard. You also get Boards that allow you to create mood boards with ease. Jira Cloud Most developers work in Jira today and most are on Jira Cloud, or on their way there. You can connect Invision DSM to Jira directly using the Invision addon for Prototypes or by simply link directly to a section in Invision DSM. Jira will act as your task management so you can connect your design tasks directly to other tasks, such as development and test for example. If you are working within a SAFe organization, then design can be part of other types of work items such as SAFe epics or Features for POC work. If you are working in a smaller organization then you can get Jira Cloud for free, which is always nice. Why would you want to do this? What benefit would you as a designer get from changing your workflow in this way? There are of course many benefits, but let us list the biggest reasons why making this change will have a positive effect on you and your design work. Reduce the barriers between you, stakeholders and development - By making it possible for everyone to stay on top of the design process as well as the development process in one place it becomes easier to break down the barriers that naturally are built in most cases. You reduce us and them situations and communication improve quite a bit. This allow you to become a part of the team because you work the same way as everyone else. Control the way your design turn into code - One of the worst things I know as a designer is when my design get turned into something horrible in development. This often happen when you as a designer is on the outside of the team and simply handover design. By working along side the developers and working with the same cadence as they do, it becomes much easier to maintain your design as you intended it. Using the atomic design and having a design system it becomes so much easier to make sure everything looks as intended in your design and changes can be done swiftly with minimum effort on all sides. Improve feedback to make better designs - By working in a controlled with alongside the development team and the stakeholder with tools that allow for rapid feedback and approval processes you get feedback faster. Often this feedback is also much better quality-wise as it is in the design itself and not a collection of emails or excel sheets. With fast feedback with great quality design work become faster and changes can be done almost instantly. Free up time by making information available to the developers - As a designer you spend a lot of time providing assets, color codes and information about the design. By automatically move this into a tool you can reduce that time a lot. This time can instead be spent on discussing designs with the developers to find great solutions together that are both visually appealing to the end consumer and technically easy to build and maintain. Keep everyone up to date with the design process - How may screens, videos, prototypes and power point presentations have you not made to keep different groups up to date on your design work? Having everyone in the same tools make that so much easier. The trick is just that the tools have to be useful for everyone as well, which is why so many design tools fail in that regard. Abstract and Invision DSM are different in that regard since it is useful for stakeholders and developers alike. If this is not enough to convince you, then as icing on the top you should know that the tools integrate with Slack as well. So you can get the best communication flow possible... So, what do you say, does this sound like a workflow that you would like to see expanded with more details? If so, what would you like to learn more about first?

  21. This is a repost from Atlassian's blog where the latest updates to the Atlassian cloud platform is posted. It is reposted here since the Atlassian blog does not have an RSS feed and so we can discuss the changes to the Atlassian Cloud architecture. You can follow these posts withe the tag "atlassian cloud changes". Atlassian Cloud Your cloud-hosted products are supported by the Atlassian Cloud platform. This section usually includes changes related to multiple Atlassian Cloud products, site administration, and user management. Email users with suggested account changes From the Change details button, you can suggest that a user changes their account details to make their profile more consistent and easier to identify. Read more about administering Atlassian accounts. Give your users a Trusted permission From a user's Permission options, select Trusted to give certain users more responsibility. These users will be able to install and configure new products on your site and invite new users themselves. Claim accounts after verifying a domain To start managing accounts on your domain, we’ve included an additional step that requires you to claim accounts after verifying that you own the domain. From the table on the Domains page, click Claim accounts next to the verified domain. Read more about verifying a domain. Jira platform Changes in this section usually apply to all Jira products. We'll tell you in the change description if something is only for a specific Jira product. Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog You can now manage epics on the backlog of your next-gen project via the Epics panel, similar to how epic management works in classic Jira Software projects. Changes you make in the panel on the backlog will reflect on the Roadmap, and vice-versa. New issue view: Add web links Save time and add context to your issues by adding web links in the new issue view. Web links are links to any URL, but they appear prominently below the issue description where they’re easy for you and other issue viewers to find. Use them to link to important sites that teammates might need to better understand an issue. We’re also moving all issue link types, including web links, into the Link issue button. Click Link issue to quickly link related issues or click the down arrow on the button to add links to web pages and Confluence pages (if you have a linked Confluence site). Find issues you've recently worked on We’ve added a new Worked on tab to the Your work page. This tab lets you quickly find and resume work on issues you’ve updated recently. Head to Your work > Worked on to get started. Improved navigation in Jira Cloud We’ve created an improved navigation experience that always appears at the top of the screen, with clearly labeled buttons and menus to help you search, create, and resume your work. Find out more about our improved navigation experience and when you can try it out. New issue view: Improved date formatting in the history feed Dates in the history are now more consistent. They’ll correctly show when changes happened relative to your time zone and be translated into the language you’ve chosen for Jira. Prevent cross-project commenting when replying to an email thread This release ensures that the comments added to a ticket, sent to the specific project email address, will only appear on the ticket in that project. Previous behavior Bruce receives an email notification about ticket - ABC-123 from his next-gen project “Facilities” Bruce comments in the body of the email, “This contract needs input from legal” and forwards the email to the next-gen project “Legal”. Bruce’s comments would be added to the ABC-123 ticket in the “Facilities” project. New behavior Bruce’s email will create a new ticket in the “Legal” project. Select your email notifications for issue activity from personal settings Jira sends email notifications when certain activities occur on issues. In your personal settings, you can now choose whether you want these notifications. If you do, you can toggle notifications for issue activity when you’re a watcher, reporter, assignee on an issue, when someone mentions you, and when you make changes to an issue. Learn more about choosing email notifications. Issue collector no longer matches the submitter's user session to make them the reporter We’ve adapted our issue collectors to the Chrome browser’s new cookie security features, but have had to change how they work. The issue collector no longer matches a submitter’s user session to make them the reporter. You can still match them by email address. To improve issue security, project and issue keys are no longer displayed in the success message after submitting feedback on an issue collector (unless the project is open to anyone on the web). Learn more about using the issue collector. Jira Software We're rolling out a new type of project known as next-gen. By default, any Jira Software licensed user can create their own next-gen project. These projects don't affect existing Jira projects, shared configurations, or your schemes. You can manage who's allowed to create next-gen projects with the new Create independent projects global permission. Read more about next-gen projects. Next-gen: More epic colors on the roadmap There are now 8 additional colors for your epics on the roadmap. Simply click on an epic to see its details, and select the epic color to view the new options available. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap. GitHub app on the Atlassian Marketplace We've partnered with GitHub to build a new and improved integration, which you can install at the Atlassian Marketplace. This replaces the DVCS connector in Jira's system settings. Current GitHub integrations set up under the old method will continue to work, but new integrations must be set up using the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. We're rolling out this update gradually, so it may not be on your Jira Cloud site yet. This won't affect GitHub Enterprise integrations, which must still be set up via the DVCS connector. Next-gen: Create child issues on your roadmap You can now add child issues directly on your roadmap. Just hover over an epic, click the + icon, and give your issue a name. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap. Kanban boards just got faster Is your team so productive, their 'Done' column is always overflowing? Too many issues on a board can slow it down and make you scroll way too much. To fix this, we’re bringing what we’ve codenamed “Fast Kanban”—a way to keep your board fresh and clean, and as quick as a flash. The idea behind it is simple. The ‘Done’ column will now show only issues that have been updated (in any way) in the last 2 weeks, hiding the rest. Less noise on your board means happier teams. Any project admin can change the retention period, or choose to display all issues, if they prefer. Learn more Quickly copy a link to an issue in your next-gen project backlog When viewing your backlog, you can now copy a link to an issue to your clipboard. To try it out: Navigate to your next-gen project backlog. Locate the issue you want a link for. Select More (…) > Copy issue link. The link to the issue is copied to your clipboard, ready for you to paste into a Confluence page, Slack message, or anywhere you might want to share your issue’s link. Jira Service Desk New issue view for Jira Service Desk The new issue view groups key actions and information in a logical way, making it easier for you to scan and update requests. Learn more about the new issue view. Use keyboard shortcuts in your queues Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate around your queues and get your work done faster. You can now move through issues, select their fields, and go to the issue view from your queues just by using your keyboard! Remind agents to update empty fields when moving a request in your next-gen service desk We added another rule to your next-gen service desk workflows. Now, you can prompt your agents to complete an empty field when they use a specific transition to change an issue’s status. The rule removes a burden on your teams to remember to fill in specific fields until they matter. It keeps them focused on the important work of helping your customers. To learn more about the rule, and get an example of how to use it, check out our complete documentation on next-gen workflow rules. Global create can select request type and raise on behalf of You can now create a request on behalf of your customers and set them as the reporter. Use the global create button ( + ), then select Raise this request on behalf of and add in your customer's email. Confluence Your editing experience just got an upgrade The new Confluence editor allows anyone to create beautiful, powerful pages effortlessly. Check out the editor roadmap to learn more. End of support for nested tables As we work on creating a more stable editing experience, we will no longer support nested tables - that is, a table within a list, block quotes, or another table. Existing nested tables will not be affected, you simply won't be able to create new nested tables. We're extending editing improvements to all pages on Android The editing improvements we made to blogs a few months ago are coming to the rest of your Android mobile pages, too. In addition to being faster and more reliable, your new pages are also responsive, optimized for readability, and have advanced tables. Some macros are still missing as we rebuild them, but you can check the list of changes and track updates to macros on our docs site. Jira issue URLs are converted to smart links When you paste a Jira issue link into a Confluence page, the URL is converted to a smart link that displays the page icon and the page title. This works if the Jira and Confluence sites are linked or if they are both cloud versions. Convert pages to use the new editor You can now convert your existing pages that were created using the legacy editor to use the new editing experience! Learn more Confluence navigation just got better Get to information faster with improved navigation – making what you need visible from anywhere in Confluence. Learn more Portfolio for Jira plan macro The Portfolio for Jira plan Confluence macro lets you embed a Portfolio for Jira Server and Data Center plan in a Confluence page. Join key stakeholders in the spaces where business goals are built and tracked, and share how work is progressing across multiple projects and teams. Bitbucket Pull requests now include a Jira issues panel In the sidebar of the new pull request view, you can now see a list of Jira issues related to this pull request and Jira issues created in this pull request. New Code Review - Limit the amount of rendered diff content Limits the amount of pull request content rendered in the diff and file tree to improve browser performance. Limits include the overall number of files and number of lines for the entire diff. Learn more Show Jira issues assigned to the current user on dashboard You can now see your assigned Jira issues on your Bitbucket work dashboard. Recent repo cards on Bitbucket dashboard We’ve improved the way you see your recent repositories by adding a new section on your Bitbucket work dashboard.

Too many issues on a board can slow it down and make you scroll way too much. To fix this, we’re bringing what we’ve codenamed “Fast Kanban”—a way to keep your board fresh and clean, and as quick as a flash. The idea behind it is simple. The ‘Done’ column will now show only issues that have been updated (in any way) in the last 2 weeks, hiding the rest. Less noise on your board means happier teams. Any project admin can change the retention period, or choose to display all issues, if they prefer.
