Involvement

Railsware has taken over Partners Platform project at the early development stage. We rescoped the product based on its goals, benefits it should provide and issues it should solve, and we moved through production to releases in a number of countries.

Our team was handling front-end and back-end development for this product, as well as graphical and UI design. At the same time, our engineers worked closely with the internal development team at 4finance that was responsible for the API development.

But what we really missed there was that \"GSheet magic\": ability to do advanced calculations, filtering, pivot tables etc. Working closely with both tools, we suddenly realised it would be an amazing gain to combine those two. With that in mind, Railswarians developed an add-on, Airtable Importer, as a missing link between Airtable and Google Spreadsheets.\n", "Easily import table from Airtable to a Google Spreadsheet. Keep spreadsheets actual with hourly automatic re-sync of imported Airtable to the linked sheet. Or enforce the update with manual re-sync whenever it’s needed.

It replaces the need for using subtasks, allowing Jira users document extra ToDo items and details of an issue by adding them as bullet points of a single checklist. In addition, Smart Checklist allows tight integration with the Jira workflow, including setting up custom processes around it.\n", "The most common use cases include the creation of Acceptance Criteria and Definition of Done, User Story Implementation Plans, QA and HR Onboarding checklists, as well as documenting other recurring software development and business processes.\n", "Railsware developed this tool for internal use during the company-wide transition from Trello to Jira, when our team noticed that the newly adopted tool lacked Trello’s in-built checklist functionality. Jira offered subtasks instead, but we wanted to continue using a less time-consuming option, which would be still linked to a Jira issue and require less management overhead.\n", "So, we commenced with launching the first free version of the Smart Checklist add-on on the Atlassian Marketplace. The first half of the year showed a vivid trend in customer growth and interest from the Jira community. Our team responded to it by leveraging great Knowledge Base and support to all free users. \n", "Having evaluated the market and identified the core use cases for the Smart Checklist Jira add-on, Railsware proceeded with launching the first paid Smart Checklist Cloud version. Smart Checklist Server and Data Center versions came next. In the meantime, our team released the <a href=\"https://trello.com/power-ups/5b6c33b64d304480bf4d57b6/smart-checklist-exporter\" target=\"_blank\">Smart Checklist Exporter Trello power-up</a> aimed at streamlining the process of checklist migration from Trello to Jira, as well as converting the Trello card checklists into the format supported by the Smart Checklist add-on for Jira.\n", "Smart Checklist grew from a tiny free tool that solved our internal problem into a multi-platform solution with more than 3100 active installations and over 155K users worldwide. Our userbase encompasses companies from 10 to more than 10K employees that come from the Finance, Insurance, Government, Aviation, Retail, Healthcare, Gaming and other industries, proving that our add-on can be successfully used in a number of use cases across all of them.
