Manage Attachments Like a Pro in JIRA

Atlassian develops one of the most popular project management platforms in the world - JIRA. Millions of users take advantage of its capabilities when managing software products, running all kinds of marketing, operations, legal processes, or handling support or service requests through a virtual desk.

Flexible configuration, adjustable platform scalability, customizable interface, multi-tier permission schemes, and other things make this platform tailored to the actual needs of the majority of users.

But like all enterprise systems it also has some flaws. One of the most noticeable problems is a trivial mechanism of managing attachments. This affects most business and development processes as all of them are accompanied by creation of additional artifacts that are usually stored within the issues. And a great number of these files creates additional problems with looking up for the necessary attachment and preserving the order among a bulk of files.

No panic! There is a solution that allows you to cope with this problem and get an efficient tool for managing attachments in JIRA. And Smart Attachments add-on is the right solution for this!

How Web2Market Uses Talk – Advanced Inline Comments for Confluence

The reason we use Talk over the standard Confluence inline comments is to be able to restrict conversations so that clients cannot see private discussions.

George Jaros (Web 2 Market)

Web 2 Market designs, develops and hosts e-commerce and e-business web sites. They are a distributed team with clients from all over the world. Web 2 Market uses Confluence for many things. One of them is working on requirements and feature specifications. The team often discusses the documents. Some discussions are internal, others involve their customers.

Inline comments are perfect for that, because they let users have conversations in context. Confluence comes with inbuilt inline comments. However, Web 2 Market decided to extend their wiki with Talk – Advanced Inline Comments, an add-on that provides powerful inline comments you can use instead of the Confluence native feature. Let’s find out why Web 2 Market prefer Talk. Continue reading

JIRA Software is one of the best software development tools created so far. But even the best tools can turn your agile processes into a nightmare if not used correctly.
