Bookmarklets for Jira OnDemand

Update! 2013 Nov. 20th: The bookmarklets have been updated to support the new Jira OnDemand markup.

Sometimes you run out of Post-Its. Shit happens. Let’s keep the task board busy anyway…

It happened to me in real-life. We just agreed on our Sprint backlog and are willing to display it proudly on our walls but… there’s no Post-Its left.

If you’re using OnDemand Jira, here is an option to help you.

WTF?! What’s a bookmarklet?!.

The Post-It Bookmarklet

Head on your OnDemand Jira instance, and choose a filter view. Click on the Post-It bookmarklet. Tada!

The beautiful result: a scrum board with pretty yellow scrum cards

The Burndown Chart Bookmarklet

Refresh your page to get the usual filter view and click on the Burndown Chart bookmarklet. Depending on your issues’ statuses, you’re informed of how much is done compared to your sprint overall point amount. (To work properly, the filter view must show the optional Story Points column).
