Insights auto-linking with Productboard AI

Productboard AI can automatically link feedback from your insights board to feature ideas in your product hierarchy, saving you time you’d otherwise spend manually processing feedback and ensuring every piece of feedback you collect is more easily taken into account for prioritization.

You can adjust the importance score that the AI assigns to a note when auto-linking, as well as whether or not the note gets marked as processed. Notes that have been auto-linked are clearly marked, and you can always make manual adjustments if you disagree with the AI's decisions.

See Link insights automatically with Productboard AI for details.

Jira integration enhancements

One of our most essential integrations just received a big upgrade. Check it out:

New features and functions ✨

  • You can now unlink and relink features and subfeatures from Jira issues.
  • Something going funky during configuration? Our new troubleshooting page will help you identify and resolve configuration errors ASAP. We've also expanded our Troubleshooting Jira Help Center article.
  • Using underline, quote, or Jira color markdown elements in your Productboard feature description will be supported in your Jira issue description field.
  • You can now re-authorize a Jira integration with a new Jira administrator.
  • Don't want to use 2-way sync? Even with the checkbox unchecked in your integration settings, we will still sync your Jira status to Productboard.
  • Using Jira next-gen projects? Productboard releases now sync with Jira next-gen fix versions.

Happy little improvements 🛠

  • Productboard will prevent you from creating multiple releases with the same name (which would cause an error during Jira synchronization).
  • Previously, a user pushing a feature or subfeature into Jira would encounter an error if they were not the owner of that feature or subfeature in Productboard. Now, users can push that feature or subfeature into Jira, and the owner of the Productboard feature will be listed as the Reporter in the Jira issue.
