Create a new team from your plan

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

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for the project timeline in Jira.

 

When creating a team, you can choose to add a team that’ll be visible across your organization, or one that lives entirely in your plan. Plan-only teams can be shared across your entire organization later on.

Once a team is made public, it can’t be un-shared. Find out more about the types of teams in your plan.

To create a team in your plan:

  1. In the Teams view, navigate to + Add team

  2. Select Create a new team, and choose the type of team you’d like to create. You can create a team that’s Available across organization (also known as an Atlassian team) or a team that’s Plan only.

From here, the process differs slightly.

For Atlassian teams:

  1. On the screen that pops up, enter you team name and add members.

  2. When you’re ready, select Create team, and this new team is now available across your organization. On this confirmation dialogue, you can use View your plan to begin planning with this team, or configure it further using Configure team.

  3. After you select Configure team, you’ll be able to add planning information such as:

    1. Issue source

    2. Planning style (Scrum or Kanban)

      1. if your plan estimates issues in Story points, you’ll only be able to create a Scrum team

    3. Sprint length (Scrum only; Kanban assumes an iteration length of one week)

    4. Capacity

  4. Select Done to save your changes.

For plan-only teams:

  1. On the screen that pops up, enter the following information:

    1. Team name

    2. Team members

    3. Issue source

    4. Planning style (Scrum or Kanban)

      1. if your plan estimates issues in Story points, you’ll only be able to create a Scrum team

    5. Sprint length (Scrum only; Kanban assumes an iteration length of one week)

    6. Capacity

  2. When you’re happy with your team, select Create.

Your team will now be available in your plan. When you’re ready, you can convert it to an Atlassian team, which is visible across your organization. See how to convert a plan-only team to an Atlassian team.
