Main view vs. Project view

The main view allows users to use Excel-like Issue Editor without saving their JQL from the advanced issue search. While project view offers smoother project navigation.

  • Only project admin can create a new spreadsheet.

Pros:

  • Ability to create a spreadsheet without creating a new JQL filter.

  • Any users can create a new spreadsheet.
