Boost collaboration with these Jira standup integrations

Published on
April 6, 2023

Development teams everywhere rely on Jira to manage their product development workflow. But no tool is ever perfect, and though Jira offers a strong set of tools, the base platform may not have quite all the features that individual teams need (or those features might be too complex for teams without a Jira architect).

That’s why there are so many integrations, apps, and add-ons for Jira. With the standup integrations listed below, you can spend less time managing tickets and sharing status every day— and more time on connection, collaboration and surfacing potential issues. 💪

Below, we’ll explore some of the top standup integrations for Jira and a few bonus plugins you can try to maximize productivity.


Spinach is like an AI Scrum Master that joins your agile meetings, takes incredible notes, surfaces action items, and keeps your board updated based on what was discussed.

Spinach is the only Scrum tool out there specifically designed to summarize the outcomes of agile meetings — sprint planning, daily standup, retros, and backlog refinement. While other tools provide lengthy transcripts or chronological play-by-plays, Spinach cuts out all the filler and just focuses on decisions and next steps. Then sends it to your team, directly in Slack.

“The summaries are much better than what we got from Supernormal and Otter. They are more specific to the agile process.” says Jason Oliver, Principal Product Manager at EMCEE.

And Spinach doesn't stop at meeting notes. You can connect to Jira, Trello, Asana, ClickUp or Linear and your meeting summaries will link to any relevant tickets you discuss for extra context. If you discuss something that doesn't have a ticket, Spinach will suggest one for you and add it to your board with a single click of approval.

If you're a scrum master or just playing the role of scrum master, Spinach can help you work 10x more efficiently.

"It is NOT humanly possible to note down, remember, and generate EACH and EVERY ticket while leading and comprehending all of the verbal communications happening within each meeting. has made my work much more efficient" says Sadia Shahid, Scrum Master at Bizvaex Consulting.

Key features

  • Summarize agile meetings
  • No lengthly play-by-plays; just decisions and follow-ups
  • Sends personal to-dos to each team member
  • Automatically links to any tickets discussed for reference
  • Suggests new tickets and updates based on your discussion

Pricing options

Starter Plan: Free summaries for your agile meetings in email, Slack, Notion or Confluence

Business Plan: $10 user/month for additional integrations and reporting

2. Fellow

Fellow is designed to help organize meetings. It’s a meeting agenda app, which means it gives you templates to structure meetings. While it’s not made specifically for agile teams like Spinach, it offers a template for daily standups. 📝

Fellow’s integration with Jira revolves around Fellow’s action items. Once integrated, you can create Jira issues directly in Fellow. You can also pull in existing Jira issues from any stream as linked action items. 

This integration lets you add Jira tickets as a reference or append them to action items in a meeting — but it won’t show you how many times you’ve referenced that ticket day-after-day. And it won’t show you items from your previous standup to start from. This can make it difficult to spot blockers on specific tickets and creates extra steps to prep for your standup.

Key features

  • Create new Jira issues directly in Fellow.
  • Add Jira tickets to Fellow action items so you can address them.
  • Use two-way syncing features to sync titles, assignees, and due dates between apps.

Pricing options

Fellow is free for up to 10 users. You can add more users and features with the Pro plan for $6 per user per month — or do even more with the Business and Enterprise plans, both of which offer custom pricing.

3. Slack

Slack is one of the best standup tools out there — and that’s because you can use it to host both asynchronous standup meetings and live meetings. It’s one of the easier tools to use for distributed teams who need to connect from different time zones. Slack is also famed for its channels, which help you organize discussions by team or project. ✅

While Slack offers basic communication tools, there are many use cases for integrating it with Jira. You can start by installing the Jira app for Slack, connecting it to your Jira instance, then configuring the notifications you’d like to receive.

From there, the Jira integration for Slack lets you create tickets directly in Slack — plus receive notifications in Slack whenever issues get updated in Jira. You can receive notifications when new issues are created, updated, transitioned, and commented on. These notifications are customizable so that you can choose to only receive those for specific projects, types of issues, or users.

Key features

  • Personalize Jira notifications in Slack to get DMs instead of email updates.
  • Create new issues directly from Slack in the context of a conversation.
  • Interact with issues from Slack — transitioning, assigning, commenting or watching.

Pricing options

Slack is free for basic features like access to Slack channels. You can upgrade to the Pro plan for $7.25 per user per month or the Business+ plan, which is $12.50 per user per month. There is also the Enterprise Grid plan, which offers custom pricing and features, and the GovSlack plan, which has custom pricing and features made for government agencies.

4. Trello

With more than 50 million users, Trello is one of the more popular project management and task-tracking apps out there. It’s not purpose-built for meetings on the surface, but with this app, team members (and anyone else invited to the workspace, including stakeholders and other outside parties) can stay on top of projects through a simple card-based task tracking system.

That card-based tracking system makes Trello useful for scrum meetings and standups. You can use it kind of like an agenda to spot priority items that need to be discussed — and you can add meeting notes directly to cards during the discussion itself. 🙌

When you integrate Jira with Trello, it opens up even more functionality. You can connect Jira issues to Trello cards, which creates a bi-directional link between both platforms. This lets you move issues through different workflow stages in Jira while updating the corresponding card in Trello. 

It works both ways, too; make the updates in Trello to automatically update them in Jira. You can also view the issue details, update issue status, and add comments directly from Trello.

Both apps are by the Australian company Atlassian, and as such, you can integrate them easily by installing the Jira Power-Up for Trello. From there, you’ll connect Trello to your Jira instance, configure the connection, and then connect issues to cards. 

It’s a good solution for teams using Jira and Trello since you can keep data synced between apps as you move through workflows. Jira lets you manage the details, and Trello gives you a visual representation of the project.

Key features

  • Connect Jira issues to Trello cards to easily visualize projects.
  • Automatically sync updates between Jira and Trello — and vice versa.
  • Create links in Trello to quickly jump to Jira projects.

Pricing options

Trello is free for basic features, but for larger teams or additional capabilities, you’ll need one of the paid plans. This includes the Standard plan, which is $5 per user per month, and Premium, which is $10 per user per month. There is also an Enterprise plan, which starts at $17.50 per month and scales up from there.

5. Range

Range is a tool that facilitates asynchronous communications. Remote teams often use this app for asynchronous conversations, and it’s also a useful tool to hold meetings. 

However, because it focuses only on asynchronous meetings, it doesn’t offer anything in the way of a standup bot or anything else to help you manage live meetings. 😬

In terms of Jira integrations, Range does offer one useful feature, which is that you can automatically import issues and sub-tasks to Range check-ins. You’ll need to open up the Range app to see the check-ins and the suggestions for Jira issues that pop up in Range whenever you update an issue.

Key features

  • Offers tools and templates to help teams manage asynchronous meetings
  • Integrates with other popular communication tools, like the Slack app or Microsoft
  • Integrates with Jira so that you can add Jira issues to Range check-ins

Pricing options

Range offers a free plan for up to 12 users, with no credit card required. Paid plans include Pro, which is $8 per month for each team member, and the Enterprise plan, which offers custom features at a customized price.

Powerful Jira plugins to consider

There are a couple of different ways to get more from Jira. Integrations, like those listed above, are apps that can integrate with Jira, often offering two-way functionality so that you can access features from both Jira and the app with the integration. Plugins are apps that you can install in Jira to automate tasks or add functionality. We’ll highlight some of those below.

Git integration

The Git plugin for Jira is a great option for development teams who use both apps. This plugin lets you integrate Jira and Git, which allows you to connect issues in Jira to branches, commits, and pull requests in Git. 

From there, you can track code changes and bugs in the same platform, which makes collaboration more efficient. It also lets you set up automatic issue linking to automatically link issues to commits or pull requests.


With Jira's ScriptRunner plugins, you can automate repetitive tasks, customize workflows, and access powerful scripting capabilities. Use scripts for calculating fields, updating issues, or sending notifications. 

You can also create custom listeners, validators, and post-functions for workflows. Not only does this save a lot of time, but it improves efficiency and also adds more flexibility so that you can adapt Jira to specific needs.


There are several different Tempo plugins for Jira — and they all add unique functionality. Most are designed to help with time tracking, letting you track time and automatically generate timesheet sheets and other reports. Others help with project management, resource planning, cost tracking, and other key aspects on the business and human resources side of things.


Zephyr's Jira plugins help you manage test cases, execution, and defects. With these plugins, you can make the testing process more efficient, make progress tracking easier, and make it easier to identify bugs.

Jira add-ons

Haven’t yet found a tool to suit your team’s specific needs? Don’t worry — the Atlassian Marketplace for Jira has more than 1,000 different Jira add-ons to choose from. 

With this many options, the possibilities are virtually limitless. Some add-ons help with meetings, messaging, and collaboration, while others focus on making development easier or helping project managers streamline project management. 

You’ll also find tools that greatly enhance Jira’s functionality by adding capabilities like improved reporting, Kanban boards, and more.
