Atlassian Atlas: Your team directory that connects employees, projects, and goals

Clear communication, coordination, and visibility into teams and their work are key ingredients for the success of completed projects.

Everything in View with Atlassian Atlas

Allow us to introduce Atlassian Atlas – the first team directory with a central communication interface for your teams. It enables you to quickly and easily gather information about team structures, employees, and projects in any Atlassian product. These cross-team insights promote transparency and knowledge exchange throughout the entire organization, helping teams progress together even more effectively.

The tool offers much more than just a glimpse into the current state of affairs. In an increasingly interconnected world where teams communicate across various channels and store essential information and valuable project knowledge in different places, Atlas takes on the role of a unified hub that consolidates all these channels and provides a comprehensive overview in one central location.

This is made possible by the seamless integration of Atlassian Atlas into the Atlassian ecosystem. Thus, teams have constant access to all content, whether stored in Jira, Confluence, or other Atlassian products. The best part: Atlassian Atlas delivers all this information as brief updates, no longer than a tweet, establishing a form of connection that regular status meetings cannot provide. This saves teams valuable time, as they no longer have to painstakingly gather and process the respective information. Instead, a glance at the update feed, summarizing all the essential points concisely, makes tracking team status and project development easier than ever before.

Get to know teams and their work better

With the team directory of Atlas, teams can be visualized, interconnected, and effortlessly browsed. The clear representation of the team structure simplifies cross-team collaboration and provides an optimal framework for knowledge exchange to complete tasks even more efficiently.

Track goals more efficiently

Atlassian Atlas offers you the opportunity to gain deep insights into your teams' work and view them in the context of shared goals. This allows you to track the progress and development of teamwork over time, efficiently utilize resources, and proactively avoid bottlenecks. This way, you always have an overview of the success of your projects and can take targeted actions to achieve the desired results.

Work independently of tools

Atlas enables teams to work with tools that propel them forward. This includes the integration of embeddings and smart links that facilitate connectivity during work. You can link Atlas projects with Epics in Jira Software to ensure that all teams stay up-to-date and work is always synchronized. This helps avoid duplication of work and misunderstandings. Or use smart links to present information on any desired page, board, or space. Explain what is being done, why it is being done, and what progress has already been made.

Work in familiar communication channels

For even more work comfort, Atlassian Atlas integrates with popular tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams. This allows teams to set reminders, share updates, and receive digests in familiar communication channels, ensuring that everyone is always informed and on the same page.

Use cases: How to take teamwork to the next level with Atlassian Atlas

Project communication

Tired of boring status reports and status update meetings where hardly anyone pays attention and is just waiting to present the latest information from their project? With Atlassian Atlas, this practice is a thing of the past: each project gets its own page providing insight into the what, why, and who. Whenever there's news about a project or if the status or due date changes, this information is published in the form of short status updates with a maximum length of 280 characters in a central location accessible to everyone. You can even embed images, documents, or videos and react to or comment on projects. Additionally, you have the option to tag projects with tags to view updates from every perspective – department, quarter, or initiative. This promotes asynchronous communication and empowers every employee to work independently and well-informed.

Don't want to be informed about all updates on the agenda? No problem! Receive only the project updates that are relevant to you. And if you want to regularly update the project status and automatically notify stakeholders, that's easily done too: powerful search features and dynamic embeddings enable code-free reporting.

Instead of relying on time-consuming meetings, teams with Atlas can access all relevant updates and work independently.

Team directory

Imagine being able to see at a glance which colleagues you're working with, what goals they're pursuing, which projects they're working on, and why those projects are important. That's exactly what the Atlas team directory offers. Plus, it saves you time. Atlas makes finding the right contacts and team information a breeze. Based on preset groupings (department, location, and job title), clear views are created, allowing you to quickly and effortlessly find relevant colleagues. Need a more detailed view? Use dynamic filters to categorize teams, goals, job titles, managers, locations, or departments specifically – even filter combinations are possible.

Atlas goes a step further by enabling the synchronization of user information from identity providers like Okta and Azure. This allows you to search by reporting lines and discover how the team and project structure is organized in your organization.

Goal tracking

Tracking goals is crucial for business success. With a focus on productive teamwork, Atlassian Atlas also provides assistance in goal tracking by making it transparent and accessible to everyone: it breaks down traditional information silos, making it easier for employees to discover, understand, and support shared goals with a clear overview of work and results. Atlas is highly flexible and can be adapted to any goal framework – whether it's OKRs, SMART goals, or KPIs. This allows the definition of overarching goals and the addition of sub-goals for more clarity.

To drive goal tracking, each goal can be linked to one or more projects that contribute to goal achievement. This linkage supports teams in prioritization and focus. At the same time, it becomes instantly visible which teams – including team members – contribute to which goal and what progress has already been made. For a comprehensive assessment, you can also insert dynamic reports on goals and projects or export filtered views to other formats such as CSV.

However, the most important aspect is that, just like with projects, you can also follow goals to stay up to date as soon as updates are published. This makes it even easier to communicate progress. This, along with the integrated processes for regular communication in Atlas, helps inform teams and leaders about the development so that they can effectively respond to changes. Or you can tag goals with themes like department, product, or quarter so that teams can specifically search for information and hide irrelevant information.
