The way in which companies and institutions can deliver a project is getting faster. Gone are the days of long-winded, costly projects. This rapid delivery is great, except when it comes to tracking progress. When high-pressure, high-volume work is being delivered at a rapid pace it becomes increasingly difficult to track progress and assess the status of each individual element of the project. This lack of tracking can lead to the unsuccessful implementation of a project, increased problem manifestation and leaders scrambling to prove that all facets have been delivered to increasingly frustrated shareholders.

Here at ids, we understand the cost involved when monitoring systems are unable to keep up with the progress of major components of a project. That’s why we created iJira. A Jira implementation and a tailored strategy that provides you with a bespoke configuration of your dashboards. It is automated, clear and informative and allows the whole team to track progress and quality in real-time.

The first step is to create a sprint, go to the backlog of your Scrum project, click the Create Sprint button at the top. Then, fill your Sprint with stories from the backlog, taking time to speak to support teams and employees so everyone knows what work is due to be completed. To add stories, go to the Backlog and drag & drop issues from the Backlog to your Sprint - it's that easy. The final step is to turn them into Active Sprints which you do by going to the Backlog of your Scrum project, finding the relevant Sprint and clicking Start Sprint.

What Does Jira Stand For?

What Is Confluence?

Confluence is an additional Jira software which allows you to create a single place to organise additional content that is created in addition to the main project. Confluence eliminates the need to store docs in multiple places. Jira tracks your issues and Confluence is great at collecting additional information like thoughts, plans and knowledge that were created in the process.

What Is An Epic In Jira?

An Epic is a large body of work that is broken down into a number of different stories based on priority. Epics are all-encompassing and will feature a range of support teams and other groups across different projects.

Then, you'll need to add stories to it by clicking Issues, select an issue type other than Epic, find Epic Link and select your Epic. To do this from the Epics panel you navigate to the backlog, open the Epics panel and click Create issue.
