Jira Core is a highly flexible and configurable business management tool.

When you create a new project, the following business project templates are available. Select Projects > Create project to get started.

General project types

Manage tasks

The Task management template sets you up with a simple workflow, easy to understand issue types, and the right set of fields on your issues to help you get your work from To Do to Done in the quickest way possible. Learn more

Manage projects

The Project management template has a slightly more complex workflow, and is great for projects that require a little more work. Including an In Progress status allows you to work on tasks over longer periods and show work in progress. Learn more

Manage processes
