Smart Checklist intro

Smart Checklist

JIRA add-on for checklists organizing using Markdown support

About

We’ve moved to JIRA after using Trello for quite a while. Trello was pretty good as it provided our team with great functionality on managing Project boards and single Tickets, but most importantly – with checklists embedded in Trello cards. However, JIRA seemed to have some great support of custom statuses, workflows, APIs and service desk project types, so we decided to switch. As we handle various projects, from Software Development to managing Company Structure, we needed a place to describe repeatable processes, from release instructions to office plants care. Essentially, we required a substitution for Trello checklists.

There’re subtasks in JIRA which are basically same as JIRA ticket, but located 1 level below your current issue and linked to it. And it works OK for tasks with bigger context. However, often you don’t need that overhead, but rather to put up to 10 To Do items or Definition of Done criteria or other steps and instructions for task execution.

Managing such an activity through JIRA subtasks is time-consuming sort of pain. Therefore we decided to implement Smart Checklist add-on and it became a very useful part of our JIRA infrastructure.

The actual version is really a huge improvement, and specially the possibility to mark some checks as we are working on it, is great. Good work!

Involvement

Smart Checklist for JIRA Cloud is a good example of the tool that has been initially created by Railsware team for internal use and then shared freely with other developers later on. The product idea has come naturally out of the needs our team had and been developed by Railswarians from scoping and design to the technical implementation and support.

Smart Checklist for JIRA Cloud development is still on as we’re introducing paid version of add-on with more features included.
