How to get started with the process control template

This template uses Jira to help your team manage recurring processes.

1. Add your to-do items

You can choose whether to use the list, board, or calendar view to add items to your ‘to do’ list. Keep it simple or get as granular as you want with attachments, priorities, labels, and more.

2. Add start and due dates

You can set start dates and due dates to your work items. This gives you visibility over work on your calendar and timeline, ensuring no work slips through the cracks.

3. Prioritize and organize

You can quickly sort your to-do list by priority to help you tackle your highest priority items first and stay on top of your most important tasks.

4. Automate work

Wherever possible, let the robots do the work. You can set up simple no-code automations to keep your work aligned, set reminders, and connect to your tools like Microsoft Teams, Slack and more.
