As a Microsoft and Atlassian Partner, we at Interfuze get very excited when both tech giants work together to give us the capability to use both of their powerful applications to make our everyday work and communications more effective.
In Atlassian’s Marketplace, you will find the following plugin: “Jira for Outlook.”
The plugin allows Outlook users to create new Jira issues, view up-to-date information about existing issues and take action on them in a couple of clicks - all done without having to leave Outlook!
Let’s take a deeper look into how this plugin works.
In 2019 alone, 293.6 billion emails were sent and received each day (Statista, 2020). That's a staggering amount of daily emails. By the end of this year, with the world doing more remote work, it is expected that 347.3 billion emails will be sent daily.
Email is obviously an important communications tool between teams, organisations and companies.
However the information in emails is often outdated, and going through your emails to triage the important things requires a fair amount of back and forth between your inbox and each app.
Jira for Outlook add-in solves this problem by letting you manage your backlog from Outlook via Jira.
The Jira for Outlook plugin will allow you to:
All of this done without having to leave your Outlook or open a new tab in your browser!
Of course we at Interfuze have installed and are using this plugin already. If you are also keen to do the same, follow these steps:
