    Quick Task entry & Quick Task Solving

    Create Templates for reusable Tasks

    My Tasks & Project Tasks

    Add Task items directly from the sidebar. Just hit enter, and your task is added. To solve tasks, just click the checkbox. Easy as that. No need to edit an Issue.

    Easily create Task Templates for common and repeatable tasks. For even more flexibility, create Content templates with any markup you want.

    Quickly see all the tasks you are mentioned in from the "My Tasks" view, or get an overview of all tasks within project from the "Project Tasks" screen.

    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?

    Yeah, 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.

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

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

    You can even add tasks automatically through the JIRA Automation add-on.

    And just in case you need your tasks to be mandatory, we've added a fancy workflow condition to prevent Issue transitions if any task is still open.

    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?

    We are testing it in Jira 7.2.1 and so far we really like the workflow. I would like to report a bug when trying to add a {task} in the popup for changing the assigned user of a Jira. I made a quick video here... http://screencast.com/t/jz2E3Sk2

    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?

    Very nice addon, thank you for it! But we've got a bug: it's impossible to add simple task while you working with issue on rapid board.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 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 host 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 host product. For JIRA Server 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 (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for apps. For versions of JIRA Server 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.

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

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    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 host 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.
