Thursday, November 10, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Supercharge Your Jira Quick Filters

Epics. Stories, Sprints. Subtasks. If you’re an Agile team leveraging Jira for project management, it might feel like you’re lost in the abyss. How do you keep tabs on everything that’s happening on your Jira board? How do you surface the most crucial day-to-day status changes across multiple teams? Jira quick filters might be the answer for you.

In this talk, Ryler takes Jira quick filters to the next level. The right filters can drive deeper inspection to understand momentum, slowdowns, and blocks. They can be integrated into processes to provide checkpoints or insights. They can help to understand long-term patterns about how teams approach work by revealing how stories flow across your board. As a result, your team can identify issues sooner to keep progress on track.

The audience will take away practical tips on observing and inspecting Jira boards with quick filters. Ryler will share the JQL behind many custom quick filters and then explore specific examples and use-cases surrounding each filter to increase team productivity.
