Smart sections are super-charged sections that help make your collaboration sessions more efficient. Smart Sections take the effort out of making updates to Jira issues after planning sessions, helping you and your team move work forward effortlessly.
Creating a smart section
Start by adding a section to the whiteboard, by selecting the section element from the global toolbar. Once you’ve added a section to your whiteboard, select the section to trigger the element/floating toolbar.
Select Create action button to open the configuration panel.
Choose a site, project, and issue type from the options in the picker in order to configure an action, then fill in all the fields.
Start dragging Jira issues into the section to update in real-time and have this change reflected in Jira.
Note: Smart sections currently only support Jira actions, therefore only Jira issues dragged into the section will have the action applied.
Editing a smart section
To update or change an existing smart section:
Select the section.
Select ‘Edit action’.
Make any changes to the fields.
Here you can also, select Clear action to remove the action previously configured. Actions previously applied to Jira issues already in the section will still remain.
Deleting a smart section
To delete a smart section:
Select the section.
Press Delete / Backspace.
Deleting a section will also delete its contents. To delete a section without deleting its contents;
Select everything in the section.
Drag it to another place on the whiteboard.
Select the section and press Delete / Backspace.
Undo with smart sections
Performing an ‘Undo’ after moving an issue into a section will not undo the Jira action.
