How do I use teams in plans?

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 project-level roadmaps in Jira.


Changes to teams used in plans

The content on this page refers to the new Teams functionality which started rolling out in August 2023, and is still rolling out across plans in Jira Premium. Learn more about the new Teams functionality.

How do I know if my site has the new teams functionality?

If the Teams page mentions Shared teams anywhere, then the new feature hasn’t reached your site yet. Until that happens, content about shared teams in your plan can be found on a separate page. Learn more about shared teams.

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.

your plan uses two types of teams:

  • Atlassian teams are available across either your whole site or your entire organization. Anyone can add an Atlassian team to their plan, and model future work based on capacity, overall availability, and the members of the team. Learn more about Atlassian teams

  • Plan-only teams live within the plan in which they were created. Any issue assignments or changes to work you’ve made in your plan can’t be saved until you convert it to an Atlassian team. Learn how to convert plan-only team to an Atlassian team.
