Take teamwork to the next level with Jira and Flock

2

From simple task management to elaborate sprint planning, developer teams use Jira for a variety of purposes. Atlassian Jira helps teams collaborate on projects effortlessly and it plays well with third-party services, extending functionality. Teams on Flock take it to the next level by staying on top of projects more easily with in-app Jira updates!

Flock’s Jira integration notifies you in real-time when new Jira issues are created and when existing ones are updated by team members. This includes when someone comments on a Jira issue so you can track progress on tasks. By connecting Jira to a Flock channel, team members can track updates themselves without having to leave Flock to check Jira multiple times a day.

Why use Flock?

No matter the work, communication is key to making teams work. Flock makes it easy for teams using Jira to get real-time updates on projects, so ideas and feedback can be communicated clearly and immediately.

Flock features Jira users will love:

Chat

Comments aside, Jira isn’t the best place to discuss ideas or code fixes. When you install Flock’s Jira integration, your team can easily follow progress, connect one-to-one or in a channel to share code changes, updates, and more. 

Search

No more browsing through open and in-progress Jira issues to find a specific comment or attachment. Flock’s powerful search makes it easy to find an old message or file from all your conversations.

Video conferencing

See eye-to-eye with your team—literally. Connect effortlessly with video conferencing for team standups and share screens to bring everyone together.

Guest accounts

Collaborate with clients as easily as you do in-house. Invite guests to a client-specific channel so you can share project updates and receive feedback in real-time.

Pinned messages

Keep important notes and files in a handy corner. Pin any message or file to your team’s channel so members can access them easily whenever they need them.

Shared notes

For when you need to jot something and share it with teammates. Save notes in your personal space or create a shared note in a channel for notes that aren’t necessarily tasks.

Reminders

Set reminders for meetings, tasks, lunches, stuff you’ve been putting off, birthdays, and so on—all within Flock.

Process automation

Automate repetitive workflows such as expense reimbursements and IT requests with customizable process automation templates.
