Do you know how to configure screens in Jira Fast?
In this article, I will show you how to configure a screen. If you never use this functionality, try it now; with the correct configuration, it can speed up the issue creation process. Some admins need to learn that you can have a different Screen setup based o the issue type. If you are new to Jira, check my Jira Scrum Crash Course article.
Let’s start with a fundamental question what screen in Jira is
Screens in Jira are used to organize and structure the data displayed on an issue. They allow you to customize the information shown to users when they view or edit an issue and can streamline the workflow of a project by displaying only the most relevant information.
One example of how screens can be used in Jira is creating a custom screen for each issue in a project. For example, if you manage a software development project, you might have separate screens for bugs, feature requests, and technical tasks. Each screen can be customized to display the specific fields and information relevant to that issue.
Another example of using screens in Jira is to create a screen for each step in a workflow. For example, if you have a workflow with the steps “To Do”, “In Progress”, and “Done”, you can create a screen for each step that displays the relevant fields and information for that stage of the process. This can help users quickly see what needs to be done at each stage and ensure that all necessary information is collected before moving on to the next step.
Screens can also be used to create custom views of issues for different stakeholders. For example, you might create a screen for management that displays high-level information about the progress of a project while creating a separate screen for developers that displays more detailed technical information. This allows you to tailor the information displayed to the needs of different users and ensure that they have the information they need to do their jobs effectively.
In summary, screens in Jira are a powerful tool for organising and structuring the information displayed on issues. They allow you to customise the information displayed to users and streamline the workflow of a project by displaying only the most relevant information.
