No more context switching

If you’re anything like me, context switching isn’t your thing. The next time you’re writing a sprint report or publishing release notes you don’t even have to leave the Confluence editor to insert your completed tasks and resolved issues. Just use the Insert Jira Issue dialog. You can find it in the Insert menu or use the keyboard shortcut, ‘command/control + shift + j’.
