April 8, 2021
Integration of Project Online and Jira made easy by FluentPro Integration Hub.

As a result, some companies prefer to combine the excellent agility of Jira with MS Project Online reliable functionality to produce efficient collaborations across departments.
But setting up and using Project Online Jira integration is also technically challenging for PMO directors and PPM administrators. When companies use Project Online and Jira project management tools simultaneously, they must cater to all stakeholders’ needs.

When that happens, things start to get uncomfortable.
What about time and money constraints? The company has many administrative tasks to manage. Plus, a mandatory need to update the project information on Project Online according to Jira’s issue status.
