Why JIRA Client?
JIRA Client is an application which provides instant access to issues in an Outlook-like tree view interface and works both when you are online and offline. It also has a number of such useful features as search query editor, customizable issue hierarchy display, linking issues using drag-and-drop, integrates with IDE, and more.
We believe that using JIRA Client will help you in your daily chores and solve a number of problems you may come across:
- Interactive desktop interface instead of web access
You don't need to browse through a bunch of web pages to find the desired information - use a familiar Outlook-like tree view interface
- Offline availability
Wherever you are offline or have a slow VPN connection, you can still work with your local copy of issues database and synchronize changes when you become online.
- Search queries
JIRA Client supports any combination of search conditions using Boolean logic. Found issues may be displayed in a hierarchical layout based on links or sub-tasks.
- Capture, edit and attach screenshots to your issues
In addition to just capturing screenshots, you can later edit them: crop, emphasize some area, provide comments, blur unnecessary information and zoom out the details.
- Track the time you spend on performing your tasks
JIRA Client aggregates the information on the time you spend on your issues and you can later analyze your workload in a time sheet and publish it.
