Smart Links for your calendar

Smart links are a richer way to hyperlink your team’s calendar in other Atlassian products such as a Confluence page or anywhere else you use the Atlassian Editor. When you paste a business project’s calendar link into another Atlassian product, a smart link will display up-to-date information.

There is the option of displaying the calendar as a URL, embed, inline, or card. Simply paste the business project’s calendar link into the editor (e.g. Confluence pages, Jira tickets) and it will create a smart link.

Smart links will appear when you paste your business project’s calendar into supported Atlassian products.

These are smart links that are rendered inline, and surface the least amount of context. Instead of a URL, it will render as an inline smart link with your project name.

Here’s what it looks like:

alt="An inline smart link for the calendar."

Card smart links provide slightly more context by surfacing descriptions, the business project name, and that it’s from Jira Work Management.

Here’s what it looks like:

alt="A smart link card for the calendar."

Embedded smart links allow you and your team to view your project’s calendar in other Atlassian products without them having to leave the page.

Users with access to the business project can view the embed smart link of the calendar.

  • You can adjust the calendar using the filter. When the page with the embedded calendar is reloaded, the view will reset to today's date and all filters will reset to those that were applied when the URL was originally pasted into the editor.

  • You can add and edit the start and due dates by clicking the row of the issue you’d like to include a date for. You can then adjust the dates by drag the bar to the start and due date.

  • You can manage the dependencies of the items. Learn more about managing dependencies.

If you want to create or delete any items from the calendar, a new tab will open where you can complete this within the business project.

Here’s what it looks like:

alt="An embedded smart link of the calendar."

To copy your calendar as a smart link, you can:

  1. Go to your business project’s calendar

  2. Select the Share button at the top-right of your calendar

  3. Select the Copy link button and it will copy the URL to your clipboard

  4. Navigate to the location with the editor you’d like to insert the calendar

  5. Paste the link.

Alternatively, you can copy the URL from the browser.

When you’ve pasted the link to the desired location, inline smart links are the default display. If you’d like to change the display, you can:

  1. Select the smart link you’d like to change the display for

  2. Choose which display you’d like for the calendar smart link.

alt="Switching between smart link displays."

We are currently looking into smart links for other Jira Work Management views to allow you the same flexibility of sharing work with your team.
