    More details

    Do you frequently encounter Jira Issues that require multiple things to be done, some of them buried in comments, but they don't quite qualify to be actual Jira subtasks? Wouldn't it be nice to get a good overview of the things that need to be done in an issue, and check them off as you make progress?

    We had the same problem, so we created Simple Tasklists - a quick way to create lightweight tasks anywhere within Issues.

    Easily add tasks from a convenient sidebar & through a new {task} macro.

    Solve Tasks by simply clicking a checkbox. No need to edit an Issue.

    Mark important tasks as mandatory, give them due dates, or apply labels to tasks to signal additional statuses.

    Tasks are automatically rolled up into "My Tasks" and "Project Tasks".

    Need repeatable tasks? Create a reusable template and use it anytime.

    You can even add tasks automatically through the Jira Automation add-on, or prevent Issue transitions using our workflow conditions.

    It also works with Service Desk and Jira Agile.

    Good Addon but would be better if it could in cooperate due dates for tasks as well.

    Great...except that it steals the focus when viewing an issue, thus defeating the point of JIRA's numerous keyboard shortcuts.

    Hi Paul,

    thank you for the review. As for stealing the focus, we only maintain focus within the task field when you actually give it focus, so you can continue adding tasks without having to click on the field every time. If the behavior you're seeing is different, would you mind reaching out to our support with a few more details?

    I like the simplicity of the plugin and starting to see how useful it could be. However, using Jira 6.4.4 and plugin version 1.1.2 (latest at time of writing). When the task list is changed or I check/uncheck an item there is nothing appears to be recorded in the history or activity log. This can be important because changing the wording of a task, adding or removing a task impact the scope of the change and this is important information to record. I can see it's possible to set "Fire Issue Events when a Task is toggled" - but this doesn't record any history or activity entries. So, I suspect I would need to write a plugin or a script-runner event handler and it's not clear to me how to access task list meta-data to put appropriate history/activity events into the ticket. Looking at the documentation I don't see any information on API access or other methods I could use? Is there anything you could share to help with this?

    Good addon, but some features are requred: * mail on tick task is not sent * it's really makes me crazy to create list using {task} macro every time, is it possible to make something like: ** {code}[_space_]{code} for not checked task ** {code}[+]{code} for checked task

    This is a great product and beneficial for small companies as well as large organizations. Creating various templates ensure that no task is forgotten and our users do not need to create sub-tasks for each part of the work as they have done prior to the installation of Simple Tasklists. This counts in an instance like ours with over 1 million issues. The integration with Jira Automation addon is also very useful for some of our teams. Sverrir Tynes Origo

    Simple Task list is really outstanding, the possibility to add tasks anywhere in a ticket and even use jql to filter for these tasks is really handy when it comes to work in teams with task lists. One of the best features is that the opentasks query is per task which makes neat filters like this possible: openTasks ~ currentUser() AND openTasks is not EMPTY We create tasks and mention agents or users behind the task, even if the ticket is assigned to somebody else the ticket will be in the users to do as long as the task isn't checked. And since the query works per task it doesn't matter if there are more unresolved tasks beneath the one the user was mentioned in. The support is also great with fast reaction to issues.

    We continue to really like Simple Tasklist. We like it enough that we are trying to implement the Workflow condition that a Jira cannot be marked 'Resolved' unless all the tasks are complete. How to do that is outlined here... https://simpletasks.tss.io/docs_workflows.php Our problem with that implementation is that the "Resolved" button does not even show up if the tasks are not complete. Our end users have no idea why they cannot mark their Jira Done. It would be much preferred to allow the user to see and click the "Resolve" button. This brings up a popup (with time spent, etc.). If the user clicks OK, the user should be told they cannot Resolve the issue because tasks have not been completed. Unfortunately, we will probably have to turn off the feature for now because of incoming user complaints.

    Hi Marc,

    Thank you for the review. You are correct, hiding the a workflow transition button is not an ideal user experience. I've added a ticket on our end to look into improving that part of the functionality. I'll keep you posted on that.

    Cheers,- Anthony

    We love this add-on. We were using another tasklist add-on before, but this one is much easier to use than our previous solution. There's also been a couple times where we've had to reach out to support for assistance, and they've been phenomenal - very responsive, and quick to release a new update when an issue was discovered. I'd give this one (and this developer) 5 stars if it would let me!

    As an Atlassian Partner we are always on the lookout for good plugins to enhance the Atlassian experience. Not only for our own instances, but also for the customers who we serve. Often a Jira issues consists of multiple tasks, mostly these are to small to be subtasks. That is why we use Simple Tasklists, this enables us to define small graded tasks within the Jira issues without the overhead of a lot of subtasks.

    Pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. This app is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your Atlassian product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. For Jira 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (500 users) and Jira Service Desk (25 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly. Note: While this app has features specific to Jira Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole Jira instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    Yes, this app has a Data Center approved version. If you're using a Data Center product, you should install the Data Center version of the app.

    Learn more about Data Center approved apps

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app has a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Data Center license for the app.

    If you already own a server license for this app, you can continue using the server license in your Data Center product for a limited period of time.

    Learn more about Data Center licensing

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for server apps?

    For server apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are available for server apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.

    Pricing FAQ

    How does Data Center app pricing work?

    Data Center apps are sold as an annual subscription. You are eligible for support and version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my Data Center pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. For Jira 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance.
