Higher/Lower Issue Prioritizer

for Jira Cloud
  • Supported
  • Jira

High precision and fast prioritization by simply picking higher or lower for a selection of issues

With many issues on the backlog, it can become challenging to rank issues accurately. This app improves precision, whilst maintaining speed during prioritization.

With every higher or lower choice, the amount of possible positions is halved. This keeps the amount of clicks/decisions as small as possible. The advantage of this method becomes more visible for larger amounts of issues.

To sort 1 issue amongst:

  • 50 Issues = 6 Clicks
  • 100 Issues = 7 Clicks
  • 250 Issues = (Only!) 8 Clicks

Main Features:

  • A new panel inside the issue window where you can use the higher/lower issue prioritizer.
    • The panel will also show epics, story points, labels and priority values.
  • Automatic assignment to sprints.
  • Extensive project settings.
    • Select a board to use for prioritization.
    • Define a JQL filter for allowed issues.
    • Set an action to be performed after prioritization, like adding/removing labels or changing the status.
    • Define a JQL filter for prioritized issues.
