David works at a large company who are evaluating Jira as their central project management solution. One of their primary requirements is to create highly specific objects for modeling the way the organizations works. The ability to use custom fields makes Jira a powerful workflow management tool. Custom fields can be used to help agents resolve a request, discuss issues with vendors, and categorize requests. These types of fields can also be customized to capture different types of information on project's issue types.
However, managing a large number of custom fields can be a challenge. Different teams in David’s company often have similar fields to add specific information. As a result, it is common to find duplicate names or use specific names that cannot be reused by other teams (e.g., "Marketing Objective" instead of "Objective"). Optimizer for Jira gives David’s company the right solution to address this problem.
