You asked and we delivered. Available now to all Learn users.
After unprecedented demand from our users, the Learn team have created a comprehensive course on how to use Portfolio for Jira. And the best part? All Learn users are now able to access this course through the Learn portal - as part of their existing license.
In a nutshell, Portfolio for Jira helps project and portfolio managers build their work items and forecast accurate completion dates for their work in Jira.
Setting a due date on a Jira issue is often arbitrary. It doesn't take into account who is available to do the work, whether they have the skills, or if the work has dependencies that will take time and thus delay the work. Portfolio takes all of this information into account and provides an accurate forecast.
Why create a course on Portfolio for Jira?
Portfolio for Jira is a spectacular tool and once you get it working, it's magical. But it can be hard to get it working right. With our training, it will take you a lot less time to set up and will ensure you get the most value out of your investment.
Why an Adaptavist Learn course for Portfolio for Jira?
Existing training available for Portfolio provides dictionary definitions similar to what you can find in the documentation. It tells you what a feature is or what happens when you click a button, but it doesn't teach you why or how to use a feature.
More importantly, other training doesn't give you that extra insight into Portfolio. Our training will teach you everything there is to know about Portfolio for Jira and help you to ensure best practices are implemented and maintained across your projects.
