Mapping Task Statuses to Integrations

If you’ve integrated zipBoard with Jira or Wrike, you might be worried about inconsistencies between the two apps. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. With our new feature, you can map your zipBoard statuses with your Jira/Wrike statuses and vice versa. This ensures consistency throughout different apps. The mapping takes place in five stages explained below.

The five stages for mapping.

  1. Choose the project that you want to map.
  2. Map the zipBoard task type.
  3. Map your zipBoard task statuses to the integration. If you have custom statuses on Jira, they will be displayed here. This means that you can create parallel statuses.
  4. Map your Jira/Wrike status to your zipBoard ones. This is necessary so that if you change the status in Jira/Wrike, it will be reflected in your zipBoard acc. Consider this as reverse mapping. This might sound a bit confusing at first, but we’ve got you covered. Click here to get a step-by-step guide for this update.➡
  5. Lastly, a brief overview of the mapping selection is displayed. With arrows pointing in the direction of mapping.

Deleting Task Statuses

Customization is great, but it’s even better when you have the ability to delete unnecessary or redundant statuses. With zipBoard, you can delete task statuses that you no longer need. Just keep in mind there are four minimum statuses that you must have, which cannot be deleted. Once a status is deleted, a pop-up will appear asking you to replace the corresponding tasks with an existing one. This is to ensure that no tasks are left with no status, and your integrations automatically map them with the replaced statuses.

Visualize Changes in Reports

As a manager or admin, you use reporting to get a better understanding of your tasks, feedback, and the overall project. With zipBoard, any changes made to task statuses are reflected in the reports in real time.
