  5. Improved person property

In this article, we’ll unpack each update, so that you can apply them to your own workspace and team.

Automatic syncing with Jira and GitHub

For software dev/eng teams, Notion can't substitute the good ol' Jira and GitHub.

However, for teams to collaborate and ship effectively (especially for remote ones), it's super-duper critical to collect pull requests, issues, and tickets in one accessible dashboard and workflow.

Now. This is possible — hallelujah!

To sync your Jira boards, all you need to do is:

  1. Authenticate Jira with Notion (as a workspace admin)
  2. Go to a Jira board and copy the link
  3. Open a Notion page and paste
  4. Sit, Stand up, and sit back down in awe (optional)
