Should my Data Center clients use Threaded Comment for Jira?

A 1-minute Solution partner guide

As a Solution Partner, solving client problems is more important than anything else.

Do any of these client scenarios ring a bell?

  • It's a new DC Jira installation and you want your client to avoid future comment mess

  • Your client’s end-users (like non-tech teams) struggle with the DC experience and this helps to reduce user friction and increase adoption

  • Your client asks about Threaded Comments and you don’t know us (so hopefully this helps)

A better Jira user experience is a no brainer.

We’re all familiar with how threaded comments work in Slack and Microsoft Teams. Why not give your clients that same experience – a better, stickier experience – in Jira?

What is Threaded Comments for Jira?

Amazingly simple Threaded Comments for Jira. Give teams immediate context. Stop losing track of which comments go together

  • Give Jira users threaded comments like they have in Slack and MS Teams.

  • With the simplified Thread Management, a user can expand and collapse threads with one click. Eliminate lengthy scrolling and find the comments that matter faster.
