Start a new decision or join an existing session

The home page of Next Decision lets you start a new decision process or join an existing room where voting takes place if you know the room number.

Select Jira issues that need to be prioritized

The issues can be selected using JQL or by choosing them individually.

Quick voting between pairs of options

In each voting round, the options are paired against each other differently. Every voter chooses what issue should have higher priority.

More details

Next Decision for Jira is the perfect solution to prioritizing Jira issues. Our unique approach with a proprietary algorithm will match issues in pairs, reducing prioritization to a series of "this or that" decisions

Prioritize Agile backlog, feature requests or business decisions. Instead of simple voting, which results in sub-par and biased decisions, our process forces people to make the hard choices to arrive to more robust decisions that the whole team can stand behind.

Whether it's one person or a team, Next Decision for Jira keeps the process fast and interactive:

  • Create a new session
  • Choose Jira issues to prioritize
  • Invite decision-makers to join either the real-time session or a self-paced process
  • Everyone makes their choices between pairs of matched issues and submits their votes
  • A new round of choices is generated and the voting repeats
  • When all the rounds are finished, the sorted list is presented
  • Adjust the results if needed and push the sorted list back to Jira (optional)
