Plugin to recommend
We only recommend tools that we use, we like them and found that are really helpful and nice. So this is not an advert but only our will to share with you good tools. One of the best plugin and one of the most helpful tool in Jira is Checklist. The full name is Multiple Checklist and you can find it on Marketplace under this link. It’s so helpful and easy to use that we bring to bear it in every task.
You can add several checklists in one task, or you can prepare a template for different type of tasks.
If you find out that particular tasks in checklist are big enough for a separate task, from the checklist-view you can change it to sub-tasks.
At every moment, you can check the checklist history
Why you should use Multiple Checklists?
If you don’t know yet why you should download it, let me show you a few arguments:
- Better organization of work. Multiple Checklists help in organizing work on a particular task
- Helpful during refinement. If you are working in Scrum or Agile methodology is a well known to you, you know how important is refinement in every team. That plugin will help organize work in a task into smaller portions and track the progress of each points
- Clear definition of Done. Definition of Done is a list of requirements that needs to be done to close the task, in other words, to recognize it as ended. Checklist make it clear what needs to be done, what was already did and how much work the issue needs. Clear requirements are an important part of transparency, one of the artefacts in agile methodology.
- Automatically add checklists to new issues. You can even create your own checklist template and include it while creating a new issue.
- Track checklist progress on Agile board. You don’t have to check every task to analyse the progress and needed amount of time
I’m interested in marketing. Especially in Ads and in creative tasks. I love trying new things, maybe because I’m so curious. In my articles, I want to show you how I see things and why it interested me so much. So have a nice reading 🙂
