Activate features

Microsoft 365 for Jira comes with a lot of features, not all of which might be useful in every Jira project. Having too many active tools in each and every issue can be distracting.

With our app you have the option to use certain app features only in specific Jira projects (e.g. the email feature is only available in specific Jira projects while the Teams feature is available in all of them).

The activation of features affects the visibility of these in your Jira (issues) and at the same time also affects the accessibility of Jira issues in Outlook and Microsoft Teams.
