The most valuable features are the ability to customize the entries and to update them quickly. Since the new version they released, we started utilizing the customization features to create specific codes and symbols for our teams that were not available before. For example, in team A each person had their own symbols and we had our own demarcation. When our project or task was completed, we had a code that we could enter online that let the main project managers know that it was time to remove it.

The most valuable feature is that engineers can access the Jira database and just search for the tasks that are assigned to them. They can then update the status on their own in those records that are assigned to them.

Being able to do PI planning using the program levels is most valuable. I find that the program-level reporting is most useful.

There are fewer customization options in Jira Align due to how it was designed.

Other companies that are competitors of Jira and Confluence, they are able to create their active directories for the vendors that don't come in internally.

Maybe some of the terms and the connectivity could be improved.

One of the biggest issues I found in the new version was once we clicked on one of the tasks that were specifically for our group and went to look at the other portfolios in other areas we had to browse all the way back to the beginning. If you click the back button, it would not work, it stayed the same place. Additionally, if you click on page B, but then you wanted to go back to page A it would not go back to page A. You would have to browse back to the portfolio and then find your group again and open it. This was the only issue that I had with it and I am not sure if it is a Jira issue or it was because of the way the site was laid out.

It would be helpful if they had something for capacity planning that was simpler to understand.

There is no linkage between the Jira records and the overarching schedule. We maintain the overarching schedule in Microsoft Project, and there is no linkage back and forth with the Jira tasks. They are independent of each other.

I would like to see Jira Align merge and integrate better with Jira as a whole. A lot of the time, the data from Jira won't map very well into Jira Align.

The workflows are scalable from portfolio to individual level but can sometimes be complex to navigate.

One area for improvement is that Jira Align's double menu and multiple menus can be difficult for new users.
