In 2022, Easy Agile and JXL for Jira joined forces to enhance how customers can plan, track and get an overview of their data. When working in Jira, lots of users struggle organising their data at scale and even resort to exporting it to a Google sheet, MS Excel spreadsheet or Smartsheet to make sense of it.

Enter the partnership between Easy Agile and JXL for Jira.

Get everything you love about Easy Agile Programs in one of the marketplace’s fastest growing paid apps, JXL for Jira. By using Easy Agile Programs and JXL sheets together customers can easily plan and stay on top of their work by inline editing their issues in tables and visualising them in completely customisable hierarchy structures.

Easy Agile Programs

Easy Agile Programs is the complete PI Planning solution for Jira. Ideal for distributed, remote or face-to-face Program Increment Planning, Programs helps agile teams align at scale, visualise dependencies and bring focus to their team planning.

Solving customer problems together

When planning, prioritising and managing your work increments and releases in Jira, visualising hierarchy and grouping issues can be tricky. Jira offers epic, base and sub-task level issue hierarchy out of the box but agile program planning and project management at scale need fast and completely customisable issue structure with multiple levels.

With JXL, users can group and structure their teams’ work just the way they need it. They can define issue structure levels in sheets based on issue types and issue links, and sprinkle in field groupings and sum-ups for the ultimate overview and editing experience.

Today, users can also integrate Easy Agile Programs information into their JXL sheets, organising issues with the app’s Program and Program Increment fields. The fields can be used in a number of ways, including:
