Prerequisites

  • Having Daily Standups for Jira addon installed in your Jira instance (if not, check out ๐Ÿ‘‰ the installation guide)

Tutorial

1. Open up a project

Creating your first standup is as easy as opening up your project in Jira. In the first step simply pick a project and open it.

2. Select a “Daily Standup” tab within a project sidebar

After you install the addon, your projects will receive a new tab within a project sidebar called Daily Standup. In this step select this tab by clicking it.

3. Creating a standup for the project

After you’ve opened the Daily Standup tab, a screen for creating the scrum standup for your project appears.

Let’s quickly create a standup by clicking the button “Create Daily Standup“.

4. Fill in the standup information

Within this step we are going to fill in a few basic information about out standup, i.e.:

  • scrum questions
  • participants
  • standup’s name (for you to identify later, you can leave “Daily standup” there”

Note, that any data you put into the form here can be changed later (for example name, participants, scrummasters… etc, can be changed later. You can find out how in the ๐Ÿ‘‰ How to edit the standup’s information tutorial).

For the sake of just starting out with the addon, you needn’t to change anything within the form. You can just leave default values there (everything can be changed later on) and click “Next” until you get to the last confirmation screen.

When you get to the last step click “Create“.

Done! ๐Ÿฅณ

Yes! Now is your daily standup created and now’s the time to give it a try.
