About RealtimeBoard add-on for JIRA

This handy add-on is designed to help remote or distributed product teams combine old-school plans and stickers on the whiteboard with an automated tracking system and make each step of agile development manageable and transparent.

  • Сreate or attach RealtimeBoard online whiteboards to JIRA issues so that all the results of creative team processes are linked to a dedicated issue and accessed remotely.
  • View or edit boards from JIRA, so there is no need to switch between tools and you can see progress highlighted on boards in seconds.
  • All the comments left in RealtimeBoard on user story maps, prototypes, schemes, brainstorming results or references are available in the connected JIRA issue, making it easy to track progress, assess during retrospectives or keep for history.

  • Vote for ideas on stickers with Emoji reactions.
