Project Navigator

Organizing project fields

In this section you will learn how to use Project Navigator, one of the main functionalities of Profields 5.0, most effectively. This screen is used to search for, find, and filter information about your JIRA projects.

The project Navigator screen

The project Navigator screen, to a large extent, emulates JIRA's Issue Navigator. The screen has three main parts:

  1. Search section: Search field and filter options
  2. Saved filters section: Save filters side bar
  3. Results section: Results table and columns
