There is an experimental navigation sidebar, also known as Project Centric Navigation, that can be enabled through a survey. If a user opts-out, the sidebar will not display for the user and the survey message will no longer appear. The ability to view the sidebar is based on the individual user's response. However, some users have been asking to enable it if they accidentally opt-out. 

A user can see if this is already enabled by looking at the User Dropdown within JIRA.
