Jira is a great tool for organizing teams around tasks. A few months ago they started to roll out the Jira’s new layout. When I first saw it I felt blind and I clearly remember it was a rainy Monday when we first met. I don’t really know why companies make so radical changes.
Why they can’t just make these changes slowly so this way people can learn, notice the differences between the layouts?
I guess the initial goal was to improve the user experience and efficiency as we talk about a project management tool. Well, I was really frustrated so I decided to revert it back to layout I get used to it.
I talked to several colleagues and they had the same horrible user experience. Bravo!
How to revert back to the old Jira view?
Don’t panic you can change it back from your profile but at some point, I am pretty sure they will drop the old view.
