    Awesome !

  2. I wish i didn't need to watch a bunch of these videos. My company has adopted Jira company wide, and it just seems so damn unintuitive. Feature within different pages, drop-downs, menus within menus… Maybe I just need to get used to it after a few months

  3. Well explained with simple examples. Much appreciated. Thanks for the video. Cheers

  4. Thank you Stewart, you really did great in bringing clarity and simplicity to perceived difficult JIRA workflow.

  5. Thank you for showing the live test process of jira work flow with clear explanations and details 👌

    Nice video. You need a quieter mouse though.

  7. Awesome!!!

    Very good video. Did you crete the project using Kanban or Scrum or Bug …

  10. seriously Thanks for this. I was trying to learn this during a work presentation and was so lost with they way they explained it. Once again…YOUTUBE to the rescue. 🙂

  11. very clear. Thanks a lot.

  12. Thanks for this. Imagine not being a developer but some exec comes out and tells everyone in IT they need to learn agile and start using jira & confluence 🤣. I feel like I always have to figure it out through myriad of documentation and online examples/use cases.

  13. Thank you. Waiting for more tutorials on Jira. 🙂

  14. Cristian Riccio

    I'd don't have the same user interface as you on my JIRA. Which JIRA version are you using and how can I find out my JIRA version?

  15. Hi I am working on this tutorial I find it very usefyl but jira for some reason does not provide me with the option " issue type" in order to select for instance epic (it gives me only the option of issue type "task" while sprint also does not appear at the end as your example .Do you have an idea what maybe going wrong ?

  16. Hey Stew not bad for a Kiwi m8! 😛

  17. Student Professor

    Are you Australlian?

    Very Helpful

  19. Hi @Stuart. I have just tried to follow along to your video and there's a lot of good material! But I think I either missed a couple of steps or maybe Jira has released a big update in the last few weeks or something. A couple of things….
    1. The 'Sprint' app is now called 'Board'
    2. Sub-tasks appear to only exist in that they are in the admin and settings portals but are nowhere to be found where you have listed them. I see 'child issues' now as the option but as a new user I don't quite understand the difference/relationship between the two.
    3. There are a couple of items that, out of the box, need to be enabled to be used. For instance, I had to figure out why sprints weren't part of my default package somewhere else and then figure out how to enable it.

    I'm hoping I just missed some things! Thanks for putting up this video.

  20. You're Awesome

    Thank you! That was a good intro!

  25. Thanks for sharing this video it was great. However, you got the meaning of project manager and product owner wrong, its vice versa.
