Jira Product Discovery fields reference

Standard field types

Field

Behavior

Checkbox

Check to show that an option has been chosen. It can indicate for example whether or not a design has been approved for an idea.

Date

Time-based information for an idea. For example, planned delivery start date.

Hyperlink

Hyperlink to any resource from this field. For example, a “Spec” field where users can paste a link to a detailed technical specification for the idea.

Multi-select

This field allows you to create multiple options users can choose from. For example goals, teams or products.

Number

This field allows you to specify a numerical value for the idea (for example, “reach” for use in a RICE score). This field doesn’t restrict the range of numbers you can enter, but for something easier to edit, you can use a rating (a quick and easy way to set a value between 1 and 5) or a slider field (1-100).
You can use formatting options to color this field based on its value for an idea to make them stand out. For example: “color in red all values greater than 50”.

Dynamic fields

Field

Behavior

Comments

This field shows the number of comments for each idea. Clicking on it opens a sidebar that lets you view and create comments for the idea.

Votes

This field allow users to vote on an idea. When you create a vote field you can configure the amount of votes allowed per user.

Insights

This field shows the number of insights for each idea. Clicking on it opens a sidebar that lets you create and view insights added to the idea.

Delivery

This field displays the delivery progress/status for the idea, which is calculated based on the status of the Jira Software Epics or Issues linked to the idea via the delivery panel.

Custom formula (Fx)

You create a new value out of existing field values, like what you can do in a spreadsheet. At the moment, it is limited to the following:

Roll-up

A roll-up is the sum of different field values. If you select fields A and B, the rollup is A+B. For insights, it rolls up data from these insights.

Weighted Score

Weighted score is the same as rollup except that coefficients are applied to the terms. Hence, if weight score field F(i) has weight W(i), then:

wscore(F(1), W(1), …, F(n), W(n)) = normalize(normalize(F(1)) * W(1) + … + normalize(F(n)) * W(n)))

Normalization is an operation over the value of the field across all the non-archived ideas. The normalized value x for a field is defined as 100 * (x - min) / (max - min). where min and max are the min and max values respectively across all the ideas. Hence, the max value will be interpreted as 100 and the min value will be interpreted as 0.

Write Your Own

Write your own allows you to use a simple expression language to write their own formula.
