What are the next gen. projects in the Jira cloud?

Hi, my loving friends. Welcome to this course. In this article, I will explain to you about the next-gen project. This is the new feature of Jira and atlas Sian introduced it in the year 2018 so, let’s have a look at the agenda of this content. In this, we will learn what are the next-gen projects, how to create next-gen projects? How can we create issues and add issue types in next-gen projects and how to configure the board? So. Let’ start.

What are the next-gen projects?

Next-gen projects are the newest projects in Jira software and it is only available on the cloud platform to the server one. If you are using a server the server platform and you wouldn’t be able to sit. The third one is configured by project team members. Any team member with the project’s admin role can modify the setting of their next-gen projects. There is no need to take the help of the Jira administrator to add the issue types and to add some fields to your screen. The Fourth one is it is easier and faster to configure than classic projects. You can easily configure setting like issue types and fields with drag-and-drop editing and reordering all in a single place because the best part of next-gen projects is the ability to enable and disable the features and it allows you to scale your projects as your team grows and tailor your projects to your team changing needs so, this is the best thing in the next-gen projects. And before going forward, I would like to tell you one more thing like atlas Sian is building the next-gen Jira software from the ground up.

How to create next-gen projects?

So, it doesn’t yet have all the features that classic projects have. And they are a lot of differences between the next-gen and the classic projects like if I’m talking about the configurations then in the classic projects. We are able to share the configurations from one project to another. But in the next gen, you can’t share it. If you did some configurations for the particular projects in the next-gen, you wouldn’t be able to share that configuration with another project. And there are many more like estimations in the classic projects, you have the options, you can give the estimations in story point in your basis but in the next-gen, there is only one option is available and that is a story point. If you will go to the next-gen cloud instance and see how can you create the next-gen projects and configure them? There will be your cloud instance and you will create the next-gen projects from there. You will see that there will be two options are available one is classic and the other is next-gen. if that particular option is created out for you then this is the permission issue so, before creating the next-gen project. I would like to tell you about the permission so, once you will click on the Jira setting and go to the global permissions, there will be your global permission schema, and create next-gen project option will be there. At the time, you will have permission to create the next-gen project. You will click on the next-gen project and you will see the interface is similar to the classic.

You can simply change the template from there but you will see only two templates are available one is scrum and another one is Kanban. If you will go with Kanban and name the project, you will see the access option (open, limited, private) and project key as a classic one. If you want to change the project key then you can do it there. You will go forward to clicking the create button then the next-gen project board will appear which would be similar to the classic one but what is the difference and how can you identify that this is the next-gen project but what will happen? If you will haven’t created it yet you didn’t create it. Maybe, you are using the project which is created by another one. You will see in the bottom line that you are in the next-gen project. You can find out and identify that you are using the next-gen project. You will see there are the options which are roadmap, board, pages, add an item, and project setting. A Roadmap is a good option which is given by the next-gen project. I will discuss this later in the course. I hope this will give you exact direction in the way of your Jira learning and about its next-gen project. So, you will stay tuned with this course for further next information regarding Jira next-gen project.

Social Media Marketing – TIPS – Interconnect Everything & Jumps on trends early

Interconnect your entire marketing efforts:- In this blog, we are going to write down “How to interconnect your social media with your other marketing channels”.

Social Media links in Newsletter:- For starters, starting today any newsletter you send out, needs to have at least two of your favorite social media networks included in them. (I would recommend Facebook and Twitter).

Social Media Links in Website:- Your website needs to have visible links to all your social media platforms. The header and footer are usually is a good place for those.

Coupon Redeem through Social platforms:- If you have a plan on creating any coupons, give them options to redeem them on your Facebook page.

Social Media links to your contents:- If you do any kind of Content marketing, include relevant social platforms links at the end of it. Also, put your Twitter handles in your business cards.

Mention Social Networks in outdoor events:- Put all major social handles into any outdoor promotions, events, and campaigns.

Try to create as many follow-up opportunities as possible, to reach your audience in the future. At the end of the day, that’s what Social Media is all about, creating authentic connections.

According to the science:

The mere-exposure effect, and the familiarity effect:- Its psychological phenomenon by which people tend to develop a preference for things merely because they are familiar with them.

Studies on this have been done since the 1960s. And more recent 2001 proved that this is not even done at a conscious level. This means your brain doesn’t even think when liking something which it considers familiar.

Do you think your choice of a brand is random or on purpose?

Well, guess again. And this knowledge has been used by advertising agencies for ages, that’s why you see the same ADs over and over again. So remember this the next time you have any doubts about mentioning your social media accounts anywhere else within your marketing channels. Because it can make the difference if people picks your products from the line-up, or goes for your biggest competitor.

Jumps on trends early

As a business owner it’s your responsibility to innovate and bring something new for the customer before your competitiors – so always JUMPS on trends early.

Peter Drucker (Marketing Expert) once said “Business is nothing more than marketing and innovation”.

The reason why you should be an early adopter, it’s obvious – get more traction. Because there is less competition. It’s like having more channels on TV. The more of them available, the smaller the percentage of people that will look at a particular channel. Even if the content your produce is of impeccable quality, due to the sheer number of alternatives, few people will ever get to discover you. But if you are an early adopter, the chances of users stumbling onto your brand are much higher.

Thus’ the chance for your business to grow on that particular platform will be higher. Even, this effect is more powerful for non-mega brands like Coke or Ford or GM. And let’s say the network you join doesn’t grow and is all hype, the loss in time spent there for your business is always outweighed by the alternative of that particular network exploding in attention, and getting the spotlight on your brand as well.

Being an early adopter is more than a social media choice. It should be a life choice if your goals are to deliver groundbreaking work. In the past, the risks involved were higher. Think of all the lives lost and accidents when designing and creating the first airplanes, submarines or cars. It took lots of iterations to get things safe for the masses. And it will take you as well, a lot of effort to create and offer great products and services. But unlike the past, then the risk was literally life-threatening, your risk is the only time, and sometimes money, and even these two are not in huge amounts.

So the next time you hear about a new social media network on the rise, give it a look. See if it makes sense for your business, and jump on it early on, and become a power player on that platform.
