Add teams and releases to your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.



The work in your plan needs to be completed by someone, and Teams are how you designate who will do what. You can assign work to teams, monitor their capacity and velocity, and show or hide work based on team assignments.

To view the teams in your plan, select the Teams tab from the left navigation menu.


Releases in your plan essentially function as large target deadlines for sections or versions of your work. In the rest of Jira, these are referred to as Fix versions.

You can set a release to happen on a set date, or after all of the issues assigned to it are completed. The former is recommended for teams that release with regular cadence (every two weeks) since any issues that aren’t completed can be bounced to the next release. For teams that have irregular releases, your plan can give you a projected release date when you define a release based on completed issues.
