How-to work with Jira calendars

Status quo

  • IT project managers work in different tools to different extents:

    • Jira: to check on development process

    • Outlook: to check on emails with customer

  • Overview of dates right in one place is challenging. Especially in Confluence, because:

    • switching tools to get necessary information = annoying, stressful and time consuming

    • collecting information from different tools = risk of losing information on the way

    • topicality of information (Outlook calendars) is maybe not given due to sync with additional plugin

Expectation/Need for …

  • for a calendar in Confluence which provides all data needed (Outlook & Jira) - in real-time - to:

    • e.g. to provide general data centrally for the team

      • shared Outlook calendars such as dev-events, holidays, general availabilities

      • and insert a current user’s Jira calendar to access own data among shared data

      • or insert only Jira specific dates for your team (as an overview about upcoming tasks)

    • e.g. to assign (open) issues among the team

      • show unassigned or open Jira issues and

      • show specific User calendars (capacity, availability)

    • e.g. to access necessary data on alert

      • focus on Jira dates e.g. show Jira issues with due date and

      • inset a current user’s Jira calendar

    • e.g. to plan (bigger) IT projects centrally

      • show shared and specific user Outlook calendars (check on availability)

      • show Jira dates such as planned Releases to align with team capacity
