Overscheduled? Overcommitted? If you’re like most of us, you’ve jam-packed your day with to-dos, video calls, meetings, and project tasks. If you feel like you just can’t squeeze another moment of your work hours—think again.
It’s estimated that in 60% of all occupations, 30% of activities are automatable. That’s particularly true for software teams.
So, how are highly efficient Jira teams making the most of automation? Power Scripts is one of the top ways project admins are reducing workload. Available on the Atlassian Marketplace, it’s one of the mightiest productivity boosters available.
How Power Scripts for Jira makes Jira automation easy
Power Scripts was designed to tackle the challenges and limitations of Jira by enabling great flexibility, thus providing an extensive (yet easy to use!) solution to complex workflow problems.
Using Power Scripts, you can configure powerful rules of automation to:
- Improve and enhance management processes in Jira software
- Automate actions and complex workflows
- Save time on repetitive tasks
- Automate heavy reports and incoming emails
The 3 Basic Components of Power Scripts
There are three essential components of Power Scripts that enable you to put Jira on autopilot.
At the foundation of any successful software team is a compendium of well-oiled workflows. With conditions, validators, listeners and post functions that you can add to any transition in your workflow, there isn’t anything that you can’t streamline with Power Scripts. From automating project updates via email, compiling reports, to sourcing approvals, scheduling project loads, and assigning to-dos, Power Scripts can help turn the responsibility for completing these routine tasks over to software.
Services are scripts that are executed at a specific time without human interference. You can use the SIL Scheduler tool to perform activities like automatic backups, external system syncs, or a re-index of your Jira database.
UI Customization with Live Fields
As a Jira admin, you know that it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to finally perfect your Jira instance. And sometimes, all it takes for the whole thing to come crashing down are a few errant clicks by a well-meaning team member.
Fortunately, live fields are a governance tool, so that you can guard your Jira. You can use live fields to hide, disable, and restrict field editing based on roles and permissions. In addition to designing approval processes, you can also use live fileds to style and customize any of the default Jira buttons, tabs, and fields to better reflect your individual preferences or organizational branding.
But that’s not everything Power Scripts can do. Here’s the full list of Power Script’s features to see what else Power Scripts can do to help you achieve your goals.
