Having only basic capabilities in reminders addons, got us to create state-of-the-art reminders functionality. Having issues stuck for days in a specific status, without good capability to get notify (for e.g. get notification after 2 days in status "Blocked") Helping Team leaders and Project managers to make sure the work stream is always in progress got us inspired.
What it does
With ReminderZ it is simple to make sure important issues do not fall between the cracks, overseen or forgotten. From within the relevant issue screen, simply click the Issue Reminder and set up a single one time reminder or a repeating reminder.
One time reminders can be set for a specific date and time, for the issue’s Due Date (get reminded that the Due Date is about to be reached, and/or that it already passed), or for when the issue has been in a selected Status for specific set amount of days.
Repeating reminders can be set on a daily basis, a weekly basis where the wanted days of the week can be chosen, a monthly basis where the reminder will be every month according to the set start date for the reminder, or a yearly basis having the reminder sent on the same date every year (happy reminder birthday!). All repeating reminders can be set to start on reminder creation, or at a future selected date and time.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Getting sophisticated GUI on Jira cloud is not an easy task. screen sizes and regulations needed to be addressed. Controlling several time zones of users. Accessing the Jira cloud in-screen functionality
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have created a cool addon that will help project managers and team mates not to forget issues, or get notification upon issue that got blocked for several days.
What I learned
What's next for ReminderZ
Connectivity to other notification applications, such as slack, intercom and others.
