Jira Software provides a drag-and-drop interface for working with your Jira issues. No matter what sort of work your team does, this visual interface makes it a lot easier to see what work is in progress and who is doing what. Jira Software boards make it easy to transition issues, and configuring the boards with some dynamic JQL can help you learn a lot about your issues quickly.
This course introduces you to the basics of Jira Software and we recommend that you complete it before continuing on to Jira Software Server for Scrum or Jira Software Server for Kanban.
In addition to introducing this course and its topics, this chapter also includes an overview of the Jira Software board. Whether you're using scrum or kanban boards, the ways you can interact with issues using the board are similar. In this chapter, you'll learn the different pieces of a Jira Software board and how to use it.
