Jira System Setup & Implementation
For cross-functional collaboration
In an effort of unifying ways of working within the UX Design organization and cross-functionally with partnering teams at VistaPrint, I had the opportunity to contribute to the Jira system setup for better team collaboration and to improve the way teams track progress in all stages of the product life cycles for eCommerce site.
Jira System Setup Diagram
Below are screenshots of the Jira system setup diagrams that I proposed. This setup allows collaboration cross-functionally across all product development teams, which had been approved by senior management.
Jira System Setup Implementations
Workflow – from diagram (for planning) to implementation that allows all three teams — Product Management, UX Design, and Engineering — to work closely together.
Custom filters were used to build several Advanced Roadmaps for different views as needed by different teams.
I built this Advanced Roadmap to pull all new and active issues that have been assigned to UX Design team across the company.
(Includes company-managed and team-managed projects)
Data Tables & Team Calendars in Jira
Besides utilizing Jira to track design projects, I built data tables to track other team projects and team calendars like the one below for the UX Design Team Weekly Meetings, which were embedded in Confluence pages as part of the knowledge-sharing workflow.
