Made by Pixelmatters’ Product Team 💙🧡
The Jira Board template made especially for Design and Development projects will help get everyone on the same page every step of the way, from Managers to Product Owners to Engineers, Designers, and QA.
Every team has a unique process for shipping software, so these boards can easily be adapted depending on your project typology, team composition, and needs. Before creating your new board, gather your team, discuss the best methodology for the project, and get all the information you need.
<aside> 💡 This goodie focuses on Jira because it’s our project management tool of choice. Nevertheless, this board composition can be used with other tools, such as Trello, Asana, Airtable, and more. Duplicate it and start taking your projects to the next level.

The tasks included here aren't to be picked up by the team, since they're waiting to be specified and prioritized. | Tasks that are ready to be worked on by the team. They're ordered by priority, from top to bottom. | Tasks that are currently being developed. | Tasks that are undergoing Code Review. | Tasks that are ready for QA. It's a "To Do" column for QA, where we can prioritize what's to be reviewed first. | Tasks that are currently being reviewed by QA. We felt the need to add this column to understand what QA's focused on. | Tasks that have been QA approved and merged do development. At this point, they're available in Staging. This helps us understand what's ready to be deployed to Live. | Tasks that have been finished, merged to main and visible in Production / Live. |
