How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook for creating Jira issues from an email thread harnesses the power of OpenAI to turn conversations into actionable tasks. Professionals frequently manage their day-to-day activities through emails, which can often include vital tasks that are easily lost in the shuffle. This workflow automates the process of capturing those tasks and ensuring they are tracked in Jira for better project management and issue tracking.

Here's how this workflow translates your email threads into Jira tasks effortlessly:

  • Step 1: Identify the email thread - Bardeen locates the email thread that you have open in Gmail to extract the relevant content. Gmail is known for its robust management of emails and conversations.
  • Step 2: Generate task list with OpenAI - Using OpenAI's advanced NLP capabilities, the workflow analyzes the email body and extracts a list of tasks. OpenAI transforms unstructured email content into structured tasks.
  • Step 3: Create Jira issues - For each task identified, a corresponding Jira issue is created in the specified project. This step requires you to provide the Jira project in which the issues will be created. Jira is a popular tool for tracking development tasks and bugs.
