Agile planning

JIRA Software gives your team the flexibility to plan and adopt any agile practice, whether it be scrum, kanban, or a mixed methodology. Teams can create and estimate stories, build a sprint backlog, visualize activity, measure team velocity, and report on progress. 

Project estimating

Estimate project timelines and prioritize your work with simple drag and drop functionality. Add estimates to user stories and track progress over time to help your team become more accurate. Use story points, ideal hours, or your own method. 

Backlog grooming

Groom your backlog with multi-select ranking for user stories and bugs. You can easily drag and drop issues or create quick filters to surface specific items. The release hub gives real-time visibility into the progress of your project so you can release with confidence.

Agile reporting

Reports, like Burndown and Velocity Charts, give your team critical insight into their agile process. This makes retrospectives more data-driven and highlights areas to improve during the next sprint. Use Portfolio for JIRA for real-time planning and roadmapping across multiple teams and projects.

Flexible deployment options

In the cloud, on your own infrastructure, or at massive scale, JIRA Software has your platform covered.
