Development History

We update our development plan each quarter, reviewing and updating you on what has been completed, and selecting the most relevant items from the backlog for upcoming development. We are committed to creating a product that meets your needs. Please feel free to contact us with your feedback or to suggest a feature.


In Progress

  • Jira Issue Creator
    Many of our customers have requested the ability to create a Jira issue from a ProForma form. So we’ll be releasing the Form Issue Creator which will users to access ProForma forms from the Jira navigation bar. When the user completes and submits the form, a Jira issue will be created.
  • ProForma Confluence App
    We’re  keen to finish development of our ProForma Confluence app which will allow you to embed ProForma forms in a Confluence page. Users will be able to open and fill out the form within Confluence. When the form is submitted, it will automatically create a Jira issue.
  • Workflow Automation
    Another priority is adding the capacity to integrate ProForma with your workflows. You’ll be able to automatically add a form to an issue upon transitioning the issue to a new status. Similarly, we’re adding the ability to automatically transition an issue when a form is submitted.
  • Pull External Data for Lookup Questions
    Several customer asked about populating form choice lists with data from an external source. We’ll be implementing this feature so the form builder can pull external data from REST APIs or from Riada Insight.
