Searching for Activities

Can't find the issue that you are looking for? On Jira any user can search for issues, although they will only see issue results from projects where they can view issues (i.e. 'Browse Project' permission). The advanced search allows you to build structured queries using the Jira Query Language (JQL) to search for issues. In Kanoah CRM, deals, contacts, activities and organizations are issues, so you can take advantage of all searching features available on Jira.

Scheduling an Activity

You can schedule issue due dates in Jira to track and review, and inform teams about issues dates. The powerful scheduling feature allows you to perform fixed and relative date searches based on specific due dates as well as arbitrary search periods. You can also perform advanced searches using Jira Query Language. Learn more about scheduling an issue.

Logging Work

Jira provides the flexibility to set your estimation and tracking statistics differently depending on your team's needs. Time Tracking features projects schedule planning and time expectations management thanks to its reports, which show original and current time estimates for all the issues, and whether they are ahead or behind the original schedule. Learn more about logging work.

Adding a Custom Field

Jira lets you add custom fields in addition to the built-in fields. To do so, you must be logged in as a user with the Jira Administrators global permission. Learn more about Adding custom fields.
