I help administer Jira and Confluence at Khan Academy. Generally, I get by with Googling things. These products have been around forever and anything imaginable is googleable. That said, I thought it worthwhile to start keeping track of some interesting things that might solve future problems.
We already make use of Structure.
- Velocity Sprint Planning & Tracking
- What? A free app for Jira?
- Looks at historical velocities and even estimates individual velocities to adjust for absences
- Questions and Answers
- This is kind of like Stack Overflow for your Confluence
- 250 seats is about $100 per month vs. $500 per month for Atlassian’s Questions for Confluence
- There is a non-profit discount on Atlassian products, but it’s not clear to me that this would apply to Questions for Confluence, which is an add-on (the non-profit discounts don’t apply to add-ons generally)
- Spectrum Formatting
- Just adds some nice widgets for progress, tabs, menus, and page status
- Seems a bit ridiculous to spend $40/month (for 250 seats) on such a thing, but such it goes
- This is the kind of thing that if I ever went through the pain of getting an internal plugin going, I’d just add it there because it’s likely trivial once you’ve got the scaffolding
