January Appy Hours event is approaching!
For those new here, what is Appy Hours you may ask? Each month, 4 partners will go head-to-head in a 5-minute app demo competition. You get to vote for your favorite, ask questions, and learn more about the apps.
So join for the next Appy Hours on January 26th at 9 am PST to see 4 Jira app vendors demo their analytics & reporting apps.
Presenters include Old Street Solutions, Mindpro, Appfire, and Screenful.
Only one can be crowned the Best App Demo, so RSVP now to vote for your favorite!
Atlassian created a new private community on the user forum platform.
If you're a release manager or involved in any way with software releases, you might be interested in joining this group.
Atlassian wants to understand your software release processes and share with you ideas around the topic. If that sounds interesting follow the link and request access.
Exciting news for the Jira community!
The Create Linked Issue screen in Issue view & Advanced issue search will now base its configuration on the screen scheme of that project and issue type.
You'll now be able to see optional fields, reorder fields and use features like the request type field on Jira Service Management projects.
The team has not changed the current functionality of copying values of summary, description, and required fields. But they would want to hear your thoughts on copy functionality of optional fields.
You can leave your comment on the feature request here.
Not much going on in terms of Atlassian-organised events this week.
If you want an overview of Atlassian's High Velocity event from December, Expium got you covered this Thursday.
What's not lacking this week are the community-organised events.
A few notable ones:
- A virtual event in San Francisco focused on building app editions. The app editions team will talk about their plans to enable Free, Standard, and Advanced editions for cloud apps.
- An in-person event in Croatia focused on maximizing daily use of Jira, with discussions on the best ways to automate Jira and save time using Atlassian products.
- An event in Toronto focused on understanding the latest findings from Atlassian’s 2022 State of Teams Report. As well as finding out what makes a LEGENDARY team. Both in-person and virtually, the event will feature a guest speaker from Atlassian.

📚 Article of the week: Atlassian in The Forrester Wave
The article of the week is more an achievement announced by Atlassian.
In the latest Forrester's 2022 Wave report, Atlassian has been recognized as a Strong Performer among Collaborative Work Management (CWM) providers.
The report evaluated Atlassian and 12 other vendors against 30 criteria. And the company received the highest score possible in six criteria: Integration Capabilities, Marketplace availability, and Support for products and services.
Atlassian's products, including Trello, Confluence, Jira Work Management, Atlas, and Jira Align, allow teams to choose the best tool for their needs and connect with each other through the Atlassian platform. This serves as the common foundation for identity, data, teams, and workflows across an organization.
The company's mission is to unleash the potential of every team and the report validates their strategy to work differently together.
