In big projects with many initiatives and teams, new issues are created every day. With so many ongoing changes, it is especially important for your Panorama to stay up to date and present a real-time update of your current state and progress.
Panorama can help you with this, all you need to do is to enable automatic synchronisation of your epics and/ or issues.
How to enable an automatic synchronisation?
Next to all your Jira epics and stories is visible the synchronisation icon. When the icon is gray, a given issue is not synchronised and it displays only the issues that were added under that issue manually.
To enable the synchronisation, simply click the synchronisation icon, once it turns green it will present current issues under that epic or story.
How does it work?
Every time you load your Panorama we will check synchronised issues for any changes. Changes are synchronised in two directions, when someone adds an issue to the epic it will automatically appear in Panorama, but also if you drag and drop the issue to your epic in Panorama this change will be reflected in Jira and the issue will be added to the epic.
Limitations of synchronised issues
Because changes to synchronised issues are reflected in Jira it is only possible to perform the actions that are possible in Jira itself. This takes away much of the freedom that Panorama offers when building your hierarchy. For example, it is not possible to place an epic under another epic, or to have an unlimited hierarchy of Jira sub-tasks so it is up to you to decide whether you need the ultimate freedom in building your hierarchy or if you’d prefer to have automatic synchronisation. In case you change your mind, you can always disable the synchronisation and everything you built will be manually returned.
