Have you ever wanted to create JIRA issues from the Confluence Editor? What about being able to quickly insert recently viewed issues to generate ad-hoc reports in Confluence? Well, thanks to Confluence 3.5, now you can!

A new ‘Insert JIRA Issue’ dialog lets you to

  • create new issues,
  • insert recently viewed issues,
  • and search for existing issues to embed in Confluence pages.

One possible useful scenario for this feature is tracking the action items for meeting minutes. With this new feature, there is no more need to dig up all the meeting minutes to see if the action items are completed.

Check out the short video below to see the features in action.
