This course is designed for Jira users who want to become significantly better at using Jira.

Not everybody is a Jira system admin, but even without the system admin access there is a lot to learn about what you can and can’t do and configure it to your liking. Jira is a sophisticated and complex tool that allows for a lot of flexibility and offers a lot of opportunities – ready for an advanced user to grab.

Have you ever wanted to make your board a bit cleaner? Filters more useful? Reporting to start making sense?

Wanted to impress your team mates or manager with your Jira skills?

This course will help you!

I’ve been working with Jira since 2008, and I’ve configured and managed Jira instances for up to thousands of users. In these years, I’ve picked up a few tricks and common pitfalls that I want to share with you.

In this hands-on course you will see me achieving different goals in Jira – and straight away you will be practicing those skills following my step-by-step practical instructions. If you are up for some challenge, you can also pick up tasks from an extra list – which I recommend you do, because that’s when the interesting stuff starts 😉

Overall, remember that Jira is just a tool to increase your and your team’s productivity. After finishing this course, you will be able to do just that – make Jira a bit less of a hurdle and more of a helping aid to deliver value to your business.

I hope you’ll enjoy!
Have fun.
