In the heart of amazing software development, in the city Brno, we launched a blog to share our thoughts.
Almost out of nowhere, the whole internet is full of advice on how to cooperate within your team remotely. Well, for us, nothing really changes. In CloseIT we are used to working remotely, we are used to solving problems not only onsite with the team but also with clients remotely. So we maybe miss three small ones...
Jira is a popular issue tracking tool and is also used in many businesses as a business process management system (BPM). Sure, there are more suitable tools like jBPM, but Jira is much more user-friendly. And even though it's less feature-rich regarding BPM options, it can be easily extended using plugins written in Java language.
For our internal purposes and also for several of our customers we either introduced or used Atlassian JIRA. We see this tool as an amazing platform which can serve purposes of software development teams but also to entirely non-IT related projects. One of the small problems that we faced was rendering a screen of an issue with many subtasks. Simply to get an overview of all the subtasks which belong to a common parent means lots of clicking to the parent and then another subtask.
