Smarter Planning - Implementing Jira Core for your Business Teams

Learn the best practices on setting up Jira Core for business teams with members from Indeed, Aria Games, and Helios Interactive.

Jira Core is the project and task management tool for business teams. Since its launch in the fall of 2015, teams have been clamoring to use Jira Core. Jira Core gives you out-of-the-box templates so you can get your project going, but we’ve learned that not everyone works the same way so customizing workflows is key to getting your team started. We’ve enlisted 3 Atlassian customers - Indeed, Helios Interactive and Aeria Games - to share their stories on how they get their business teams into Jira and show you how they customized their workflows, issues, and dashboards.

Join Sheri Atienza, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Atlassian, as she discusses the best practices on setting up Jira Core for business teams with Renee Trepagnier, Ben McChesney, Radek Orszewski and Rachel Gillis.

In this webinar, you'll learn how:

  • Indeed applies the best practices from their software teams to implement the path of least resistance for their non-tech teams - marketing, legal and HR
  • Helios Interactive tracks their sales opportunities in their unconventional workflow
  • Aeria Games manages a creative workflow that goes through multiple teams across the marketing organization
