Jira for the moment I write this post is the most used system to task project management. This top position is no accident.In this post I will show you 6 points that will answer why Jira is so good.
1. Many usefull kind of projects
We can easily use the system to manage:
a) Software projects,
b) Business projects.
We can also use Jira to work in Scrum or Kanban methodologies.
2. Converting tasks between projects
we can easily move task from one project into another ones if we make any mistakes. In many other systems such option is impossible and we can only delete the task in one project and next create new one in another project.
3. Powerfull permissions to projects
Another important thing is that we can individually create permission schemas. Permission schema is a grouped list of possible actions we can do in the project with assigned to them permissions. With such solution we are able to create complicated strategies for user permissions cross all managed projects.
4. Drag and drop
I cannot ommit one thing in Jira what makes this system the best possible solution on the market: DRAG & DROP. Maybe this is not a rocket science but believe me many systems for task management don’t have this feature. In Jira we can drag almost everything from moving tasks between different states (columns) and up to files upload.
Someone can say that for example in Asana system you can also drag and drop everything, but I will add only one answer: in Jira besides this everyhing is transparent and simple in the case of presentation. We don’t have any problems with navigation because every part of the design is very well prepared.
5. Make your own workflow in the project
In comparison to another systems in Jira we are able to create our own workflow of possible transitions between defined states.
After such operations we can assign defined states and schema workflow into columns on your boards.
6. User management
Inviting new users to the system is very simple, you just click ‘Invite user’ in the ‘User management’ panel. You can also configure different levels of authentication to the Jira system like: simple authentication, LDAP, Windows Active Directory etc.
