What new Jira features would help your team manage issues and plan development workflows better?
via Oliver Wihler on Jira: "As a JIRA Administrator I need more granular configuration for my projects. I want to be able to specify different priorities for different projects instead of having a global priority list. Depending on the issue type, the resolution may be different."
via Patrick Peak on Jira: "Currently, I need to give my project manager the jira-administor permission in order for him to create new projects. Unfortunately, this opens up the possibly of him doing other stuff, like changing the mail server."
via Mark Derricutt on Jira: "I need more hierarchical organization of tasks. As of today JIRA offers only a two-level hierarchy (if installed without plugins): stories and subtasks. But in reality the process of resolving issues can be much more complicated. During the process of analysis a simple story can be broken into a number of sub-tasks. And then each of the sub-tasks may be consequently broken into a set of even more granular entities."
via John Knight on Jira: "Certain reporting-type filters, used by project management or other groups, may have multiple users managing them. It would be great to have the ability to specify group-ownership of a filter, allowing anyone in the group to edit the filter, so the same filter remains in use."
Especially for personal to-dos and tasks that you need to accomplish outside of your team, what is your favorite app and tricks for getting the most out of it?
