SYDNEY, 29 March 2021 − Now out of beta, JXL is available for all Jira Cloud users. The app combines the power of Jira with the familiarity of spreadsheets, allowing users to effortlessly manage all their work in one place. Ease of use, speed, and security are at the centre of the experience. Fine Software, the company behind JXL, recently received funding from Atlassian Ventures, shortly after it was founded.
As powerful and versatile as Jira is, sometimes nothing beats good old spreadsheets. JXL offers its users highly customizable sheet views right inside Jira, without the need to export any data. Built by Atlassian alumni, JXL feels native and seamlessly fits into any Jira environment, making project management, roadmap prioritisation, development sprint planning, backlog maintenance, or requests triage a breeze.
Project and product managers, Jira administrators, engineers, designers, IT professionals, support staff, and all kinds of knowledge workers use JXL to create tailored views for their jobs. They enjoy the freedom to arrange every last detail of a sheet to fit their team’s or individual way of working. By updating and assigning tasks all in-line in one place, they save time, work smarter together, and supercharge their workflow.
JXL’s wide-ranging capabilities at launch include column sorting, filtering and resizing, keyboard commands and shortcuts, marking, copying and pasting single or multiple cells in one go, undoing and redoing any changes, a status bar for cell range aggregations, support for most Jira fields, and much more. A sheet editing experience with an easy-to-use JQL composer bar allows users to freely define their sheet scope and to manage table columns to their liking. Upcoming features include issue ranking and hierarchy grouping, support for even more field types, fine-grained sheet permissions, cell formulae and integrations with external tools and data, etc.
JXL for Jira Cloud is affordable productivity that grows with customers as they scale. A free trial of the app is available on the Atlassian Marketplace and directly within Jira Cloud sites.
