Today we’re excited to announce new Atlassian Power-Ups for Trello available for Atlassian cloud products: Jira Software, Confluence, and Bitbucket, as well as an improved Hipchat integration. As one of Trello’s first releases since joining Atlassian, these Power-Ups are leading the way for many more awesome features in the works for our users.
Unleashing the potential of every team is the core mission of Atlassian. When Mike, Scott, and I were considering merging our two companies, that mission stood out as the common fabric between our products. That may sound like a bunch of feel-good marketing gobbledegook, but the focus on teams is actually incredibly important to us.
The way we work is at the beginning of a massive transformation. Modern teams are more distributed and more mobile, and the work they do is more complex. Teams form organically around work to be done. Teams change, disband, and reform rapidly, and each person works with many different teams and tools simultaneously. All that said, how does everyone stay in sync on what’s important?
We know all teams don’t work in the same exact way or use the same exact toolsets. Adapting to the unique way a team works is exactly why Trello is so flexible, and when combined with Jira, Confluence, or Bitbucket’s rich feature sets, teams are able to get even more done. Through Trello’s new Power-Ups, we can keep every team in your company rowing in sync and headed in the same direction.
Atlassian Power-Ups in action
Power-Ups give users the ability to make Trello boards more functional and customizable, and these Power-Ups will make it easy for the whole team to see their stream of work, regardless of which tool is being used.
Your support team might be using Trello to triage feature requests, which then move into Jira for your developers to tackle. Later, pull requests get added to Bitbucket and the support team can see in Trello that they got merged to master. Meanwhile, the marketing team uses Trello for their editorial calendar and starts a new Confluence page from within the Trello card to track next week’s blog post. Your remotely distributed team uses Hipchat as its virtual office to communicate and fire off Trello cards from the conversation for follow-up action items.
Trello’s goal is to give you a shared perspective across all of your tools at a glance. Status updates from Jira, code reviews in Bitbucket, goals and objectives in Confluence, and relevant chatter in Hipchat can all be linked to their respective Trello cards. Members of different teams know where to go to find relevant information, as well as see how far along a certain initiative is in the process.
The power of teamwork lies in the ability to empower each team member with perspective on the project at hand, from every tool, at any stage. Unlocking this level of teamwork and the potential of these teams is our mission every day.
