In this post, we will go through the new UI and navigation features in Jira Cloud product. The improved navigation is always visible, so you can quickly search, create stuff, and get back to what you use most.
How to get?
The new navigation is faster and clear than the old navigation.
Login to the Jira cloud dashboard. You can get the new navigation by clicking on the ‘Try improved navigation’ blue button as shown.
You can still switch back to the old navigation for now, but the new navigation is worth trying and you don’t go back unless your are nostalgic
