Jira has a massive problem. And it’s not even Jira’s fault. Does any of this sound familiar? This is all because of Jira tickets; not how Atlassian has created the platform – but how we, as users, are writing them. Jira tickets, when written badly, can destroy productivity, cause friction, and lead vocal members of your team to demand a switch to a different platform. To avoid this, it’s important to know how to write Jira tickets effectively from the get-go.

The tech-first world we live in might never have been, were it not for Atlassian. Atlassian’s product family includes some of the most advanced productivity platforms and software tooling systems, all intimately linked. Every tool works together seamlessly, facilitating everything from DevOps to Payroll, and from support tickets to marketing plans. But Atlassian isn’t the only player in the game. There are alternative platforms outside of the Atlassian stack.

We live in a time where information is everywhere. Information about everything. How to make perfect pasta. When to plant potatoes. Which exercises build muscle the fastest. Even how to start a company, and how to run it. This is all truly great stuff that blurs the lines between education and entertainment. You can learn how to do something, from an experienced practitioner, and usually for free. But the reality of software startups is almost always shielded from you.

Cast your mind back, if you will, to 2010. Do you remember what the biggest leaps in consumer and business technology were back then? It was the year that Instagram launched. The first iPad was introduced. Cloud computing went mainstream, with Microsoft Azure going up against AWS. Major disruptors had yet to even enter the market. Uber? Not a thing until 2011. Same goes for Snapchat and Minecraft. The most powerful games consoles in 2010 were the PS3 and XBox 360.

Atlassian’s flagship products include the mighty Jira – born as a tool designed to track the status and progress of issues and bugs in software development. But Jira has come a long way since its first release in 2002. Today, Jira can be deeply customised, and integrated with the whole Atlassian stack. It has evolved into an incredibly powerful tool – and not just for development.

Atlassian first released Jira in 2002. Twenty years ago. It’s unbelievable to think it’s been that long. Back then, Jira was purely for software development. But now, it has evolved into a tasking, listing and accountability tool that’s used in a variety of industries and teams, from Legal and HR, to Marketing. It’s not just a dev tool anymore. It looks different. The functionality has changed.

Jira is an extremely useful product that has made working easier for countless businesses – but it does occasionally get something of a bad name. The key issue here is not that Jira causes problems by itself, instead it is the human input issue that creates the challenges. When Jira is poorly managed or misused it can make everything feel far more complicated than it needs to. If you can start using Jira the way it is intended, it can have positive influences on productivity and efficiency.

The government website updated its skilled worker visa list in February 2022. According to this list, the UK’s skills shortage is deep; everyone from senior care workers to dancers is in demand, and visas are on offer to those who can fill those roles.

We humans are forgetful creatures. Hopping from one crisis to the next, we forget the staggering lengths we’ve been through to get where we are. We forget the chaos, and the uncertainty. Cast your mind back to March 2020 – if you haven’t blocked it all out, that is. The UK, USA, and most other countries around the world had either entered or were entering a national lockdown, in response to Covid-19.
