Customize your Jira issues with the new Custom Field Suite to make more informed decisions


What if we tell you that good-looking Jira issues can make you feel good and more confident? Sounds far-fetched? Ok, allow us to prove you wrong.

Now, listen to this. If you’re like most users, you use Jira for project management, right? And why wouldn’t you? It’s no secret that Jira provides features for every project stage. From project idea to project execution and project completion, all is possible with Jira issues.




But Jira issues work doesn’t stop there. No, sir. In fact, this is where it intensifies, as it also empowers you to make better project estimations and wiser choices.

Making well-informed decisions has several advantages, including more effective project outcomes, improved profits, efficient resource management, self-assurance, and less anxiety. Both for the project manager and the team. However, to arrive at that point, you need to gather and visualize all facts and information that are relevant to the decision.

So, to help you shape up your project management skills and drills, we’ve revamped the design of our Custom Filed Suite app for Jira. Now you can make your Jira issue view even more neat and clear with eye-catching and informative custom field types in just a few clicks. Read on and find out what we did. Pretty awesome things await you.

Lookin’ good, Custom Field Suite: Find out what’s new!

Wondering what we’ve been up to, fellow Jira fans? Let’s take a closer look at the main changes we made to our Custom Field Suite app.


New, dashing dashboard for a complete overview of your custom field types

One of the key areas of focus during this makeover was the dashboard overview. While creating custom fields was easy, there was no clear overview of the created fields. And now, with the new Custom Field Suite dashboard, you get a complete overview of all the created custom field types at first glance and in one place. But, it’s not just all about looks. The new dashboard will also help you track their usage. You can create (“Create custom field” button now available in the top right corner), edit, and filter your custom fields directly on the new dashboard.

Custom field types had a major glow up

Why so serious? Cheer up your team and brighten up your Jira issues. All custom field types available within the app had a major glow up and now look more stunning and eye-catching than before. We could say that a more engaging and vibrant style has replaced the former, somewhat more traditional visualization. Something we’ve all been waiting for. 😉 After all, better visualization will lead to a better understanding of the requirements and help you reach that decision that can make or break your project.


A new level of configuration for custom field types

Custom field types now come with more configuration options, making them even more visible and suitable for our customers’ different use cases and needs. To name just one example, a new MoSCoW Prioritization field configuration offers two view options to choose from – Shortened view or Label view. But, other custom field types were no exception, and each got its makeover treatment. So, feel free to install the app today and admire them up close.

Custom field types got more fluent in JQL

Use the “is not Empty” query to search for issues related to your Custom Filed Suite fields. Clicking on the data in the “Usage” column displayed directly on the dashboard, a JQL filter is automatically entered: e.g., cf[10002] is not EMPTY (cf[10002] being a “MoSCoW Prioritization” field”). With this, you now have the ability to view all issues which utilize the selected custom field.


On your marks Jira issues. Ready, set, customize!

If you can’t beat Jira issues, well, customize them and make them work for you. Enhance the visibility and improve the usability of your Jira tickets by choosing from a vast selection of custom field types available within the Custom Field Suite app. Make things clear for everyone using Jira and unlock the next level of your project management skills in just a few clicks.

Who knows. Your next big business decision or crucial and reliable estimation could be just one Jira custom field away.
