Much time has passed since Atlas was unveiled at Atlassian Team22, and Atlas' progress has been unstoppable. Numerous innovative features have been seamlessly integrated, taking Atlas beyond beta and into a new dimension of maturity.

But let's take a moment to refresh our memories:

What exactly is Atlas?

With Atlassian Atlas, core information about teams, their applications, and their work is brought together in one place, making it even easier for teams to work together on an open basis. Atlas also ensures transparency and traceability between teams, and everyone on the team knows:

  • What they're doing
  • Why they're doing it (goals, OKRs)
  • Who is working on it
  • What the current state of things is (status)

After Atlassian Atlas left it’s beta phase, numerous features have been added. Here are the highlights:

1) Synchronization with Jira Epics

The free Atlas for Jira app enables seamless integration between Atlas projects and Jira tasks. Through this integration, Epics that are actively being worked on in Jira are displayed directly in Atlas, along with all relevant details. As a result, readers get instant access to progress updates on Epics, including important information from Jira such as the current target completion date, eliminating the need for manual updates.AtlassianAtlas1


2) Private projects

While Atlas encourages transparent communication within the company and facilitates visibility into the progress of ongoing projects, the day-to-day operations of the business may not always be conducive to open projects. Private projects, on the other hand, can be limited to a specific set of users, facilitating confidential and trusted communication.


3) Target ratings

Goals in Atlas are a flexible way to communicate how your teams are progressing toward achieving shared outcomes. You can define parent goals and subgoals, assign owners for each one, and link to contributing projects. And now, with Atlas Standard, you can give goals a projected score based on how confident you are that you’ll meet your goal by your target date. This method of scoring goals is best if you use OKRs (Objectives and Key Results).


4) Employee motivation with Kudos

Through Kudos, Atlas provides a seamless platform for acknowledging outstanding work, ensuring that everyone can readily express appreciation. This feature offers a straightforward, enjoyable, and individualized method of expressing gratitude to colleagues who consistently exceed expectations.


5) Create, share, and export roll-up reports without using code

The projects and goals directories provide a quick and easy way to create roll-up reports. You can use filters like status, contributor, tag, team, owner, and reporting line to find the information you need. The results can be embedded in Confluence or Jira Cloud using Smart Links, or exported to CSV format for further analysis and customization.
