What's new in Jira Cloud for macOS
On a board with swimlanes, go straight to a subtask’s parent issue or epic with a single click.
Move projects to trash rather than deleting them straight away; admins can retrieve them before they’re permanently deleted.
Easily see months within each quarter on your roadmap.
Performance improvements have been made to issue editing and issue details, as well as notifications.
Bugs were fixed, including one that displayed a single default swimlane in classic project templates.
View branch information in your issues.
Bugs were extricated, including one that sporadically booted people out of the app.
Development info within issues continues to grow: builds have arrived!
Filter by unassigned issues on your board and backlog.
Adding columns to your board is now done via the ‘more' icon within each column.
Searching for unnamed epics is now easier; they’re listed under ‘unnamed’.
Bugs were squashed, including some lurking in the issue-editing experience.
Commits have sidled onto the development details screen.
Bugs were removed: one was preventing people from editing story points, and another was crashing the app when issues were opened from links.
Format text faster with character shortcuts, including * (bold) and # (heading).
Adding smart links to issues just got easier. Try it.
Easily view pull requests related to your issues.
Quickly access your service desk’s settings via the ‘more’ icon (three dots, sometimes called ‘meatballs’).
Bugs were eliminated.
You’re a star! And now your projects can be, too. Star your favorites to locate them faster.
Feast your eyes on better smart link rendering in issues.
Further improvements have landed in the issue-editing experience, with a smarter toolbar and additional shortcuts for adding complex content (lists, quotes, and code block).
We added additional improvements to the issue editing experience, including smoother editing and auto-save for descriptions, and the ability to close issues via ‘escape’. The whole thing is snazzy. (Snazzy is fun to say.)
Bugs were removed. Nothing but happiness here.
Filtering just hugged flagging: now, when you’re filtering your board by flagged issues and you create a new issue, it’ll be automatically flagged, too.
We’re rolling out a new editing experience, making it easier to edit comments and descriptions, make text selections, edit in Dark Mode, and attach files within comments. (Spot a rogue bug? Let us know: Go to your account > Send feedback. You’re awesome.)
Switch between Jira sites with ease: go to your account and hit Switch site.
Searching for issue fields (such as assignee and reporter) has become easier, with better search suggestions and refined results.
Bugs were lured from the UI with a scattering of sugar-coated branches and candy-flavored commits.
Development info has landed in issues. Quickly see a summary of related commits, pull requests, branches, builds, reviews, and deployments. So much juicy info right there.
Create major incidents from within your service desk issues.
We’ve sharpened your board’s issue-create function. (It's when you create an issue directly on the board without opening the issue detail window.) Now, if you’re filtering the board by assignee, epic, and/or label, your new issue will automatically inherit those labels and be instantly visible on the board.
Check out the little progress bar for child issues we’ve added to the issue detail window. It gives you a quick visual of how you’re tracking with complete (or incomplete) child issues.
Edit, copy, and delete issue comments by hitting the ‘more’ icon (three dots, sometimes affectionately called ‘meatballs’) next to the issue’s comment.
Bugs were banished: one prevented people from assigning issues even when they had the correct permissions, and one bombarded people with timeout information if their Mac went to sleep.
Say hello to the Cumulative flow diagram! This report shows the quantity of issues moving across statuses over time, helping you identify bottlenecks in your team's workflow.
Create versions via the Releases tab.
Adding and editing comments just got easier, with faster @mentions, smoother arrow-key navigation, and a slicker overall performance.
Two bugs were playing havoc behind the scenes: one with Korean text-entry, the other with backlogs failing to load if issues weren’t labelled. We sent them both packing.
Link and unlink OpsGenie incidents from within your issues.
Discover change management fields within your service desk issues.
We added other small UI improvements, too.
Ready to set sail? Releases have arrived! View and edit your versions.
Filter issues in your backlog by epic and label.
Select the sprint for your burndown chart, and switch between story point and issue count values.
Versions have split their view. (Don’t worry, it’s a good thing.)
Bugs have been bamboozled: one was preventing keyboard shortcuts from doing their job in releases and reports, one kept bringing the entire app to an unexpected halt, and another was shining a blinding light onto the assignee picker while in dark mode.
Pssst... Are you on the latest version of macOS Catalina (10.15.4)? You’ll find that the Jira app’s editing experience has improved significantly.
Drumroll… Reports have arrived! Analyze your team’s performance with burndown charts and velocity reports.
Filter issues by type in your backlog.
Discover a new field within your service desk issues: Affected services. (It's tucked within the view and create screens.)
Performance improvements were added with the gentlest of care, and bugs were blasted from the UI with unapologetic gusto.
Add goals to sprints after they’ve started. Boom.
Enter time more easily when logging work.
We added bling to your backlog: See all those little faces peering at you? Assignee avatars are visible on issues. And there’s an assignee filter for issue search.
We added less flashy bling behind the scenes, too, in the form or performance improvements and bug fixes.
Switching between Atlassian products (and discovering others) is easier than ever via your account.
Add a sprint goal when you start your next sprint.
Quickly identify which epic an issue belongs to within your next-gen project’s backlog.
A couple of bugs made themselves known: one was stopping projects from appearing as ‘recently viewed’, and another was causing trouble for board filters.
Several bugs have been sent straight to the slammer: Project tabs were appearing disabled upon launching the app, people weren’t being taken to the board after starting a sprint, filters in the backlog vanished if you ventured elsewhere, and language switching wasn’t extending to the sidebar, tabs, and board filters.
In the interest of sending some bugs sky-high, we ordered dynamite. We received diatomite instead. The bugs still expired; it just wasn’t very spectacular.
Font size matters. Go on, try a different one. (We made font size improvements.)
Service desk agents, rejoice! Approvals can now be processed in-app.
We removed bucketloads of bugs: one was blocking issue-type changes upon issue-create, and another was crashing the app on logout.
Goals are good (otherwise we drift, amiright?) so we made sprint goals visible in the backlog.
We added organizations to service desk issues.
One belligerent bug is currently running rampant in the editing experience. Rest assured we’re on the hunt. We’ve got butterfly nets and everything.
Blurriness was a common frustration for many people. Good news — we’ve managed to bring the text into much tighter focus.
Scroll horizontally across boards like a champion with the new horizontal scroll bar.
You’ll be tempted to create a multitude of projects from the main projects screen now. We’ve added a glorious Create project button. Seriously, try to resist. It’s calling you.
Copying links to issues just got easier – simply click the new 'copy issue link' symbol beside the issue’s key.
Active sprints are now visible in the backlog.
Sometimes, size matters. Change your font size (Account > Settings > Font size) and/or adjust the size of your side panel (click and drag).
Roadmaps were feeling nostalgic, displaying previously-selected issue details in the side panel rather than current ones. We fixed that.
Other bugs were evicted: Logging out via File in the menu bar wasn’t working, and attaching PDF files to issue comments was broken.
One wily bug kept making the Mac app crash upon editing an issue’s description on Catalina v15.10.1. He’s gone now.
Other small bugs were coaxed from the UI’s cogs and pulleys, too.
Grab a towel! Swimlanes have arrived.
Bugs have been fixed, including Dark Mode readability issues.
