Jira vs Nifty: 2024 Comparison

Jira and Nifty are two of the most popular project management tools available today.

But how do they stack up against each other?

Which one manages tasks better?
Which one helps you allocate resources more effectively?
Which one is more affordable?

Discover all the answers in our detailed comparison guide.

A. Project and Task Management

Get. Things. Done. 

You and every project manager likely live by those words.

It’s also the heart and soul of any project management software. 

This is why, before anything else, you must evaluate a tool’s ability to help you manage your tasks and projects.

Features to look out for:

  • Project structure: A simple, intuitive way to organize work and toggle through multiple projects, tasks, boards, etc. 
  • Views: Board, list, timeline, Gantt, and other types of views that let you visualize various types of information within each project.
  • Tasks & subtasks: Dedicated spaces offering the ability to drill down to the smallest level of actionable detail about each project item. 
  • Statuses: Effortless ways to communicate the exact progress of each task, board, project, etc.
  • Checklists: Quick to-do lists for each task so things don’t fall through the cracks 
  • Task templates: Easy-to-copy templates to create identical tasks at scale across multiple projects. 
  • Assignees: The ability to assign tasks, boards, or projects to individual team members, groups, or even teams. 
  • Priorities: A way to communicate the urgency level of each task, subtask, or project. 
  • Automations: Trigger-based (if X happens then do Y); ways to automate repetitive actions such as notifications, comments, status updates, etc.

1. Project Structure / Hierarchy

a. Jira

Based on your needs, you could choose between two of Jira’s primary project management offerings:

  • Jira Work Management for more broad-scale project management 
  • Jira Software for software development teams to manage issues
For Jira Work Management

Choose between:

  • Company-managed projects: Set up and controlled entirely by the Jira admin in your team. This utilizes a similar configuration across all projects. 
  • Team-managed projects: Set up and controlled entirely by a designated project admin. This setup is independent of other projects.

Projects > Boards > Issue Cards

  • Projects: A shared space to document, organize, and track your work.
  • Board: A Kanban-style board to visualize all issues in a customizable workflow. 
  • Issue Cards: Summary of individual issues you’re working on.

For Jira Software

Jira Software’s default hierarchy contains:

Epics > Stories/Tasks > Sub-tasks

  • Epics: High-level objects/priorities the team is working towards — comprising multiple Stories and Tasks. 
  • Stories/Tasks: Functional requirements that the team is developing. 
  • Sub-task: Actionable items that make up Stories. 

You can customize this hierarchy with marketplace apps and add Initiatives containing multiple Epics.

b. Nifty

Find everything on Nifty by navigating this easy-to-understand hierarchy:

Workspace > Portfolios > Projects > Milestones > Tasks > Subtasks

    • Workspace: A place for all your work on Nifty
    • Portfolios: A collection of projects grouped by teams, departments, etc. 
    • Projects: Designated spaces to manage and collaborate over Milestones, Tasks, docs, etc. 
    • Milestones: High-level objectives in a project comprising several Tasks
    • Tasks: Single to-dos that can be assigned to individuals or multiple team members
    • Subtasks: A breakdown of Tasks into smaller to-dos that comprise them

2. Views

a. Jira

Jira Software

Jira Software comes with the following preconfigured views:

  • Basic: A table format that shows issue details such as start and due dates, status, the hierarchy of issues, and timeframes. 
  • Sprint capacity management: A table format that zooms in on capacity across issues to help you optimize sprints and iterations. 
  • Top-level planning: A table format to give you a high-level overview of all issues and their relationship with each other. 
  • Dependency management: A table format to showcase only issues that have dependencies in the plan to spot which ones are blocking progress.

Jira Work Management

Jira Work Management offers the following views:

  • Board: A Kanban-style board to get a progress snapshot of work yet to be started, in progress, and completed. 
  • List: A single list to view all issues in the project for a quick scan. Get a quick glimpse of the issue type, summary, status, assignee, etc.  
  • Timeline: A Gantt chart view to visualize the timing and sequence of individual issues. 
  • Calendar: All project issues organized by start and due dates on a calendar format. 

Besides this, you can access Overviews that offer a high-level, aggregated view of work across multiple projects.

b. Nifty

Work on these six views on Nifty:

Nifty allows you to see your work with these 11 views:

  • List: Shows all Tasks one after the other in a simple list.
  • Timeline: Track the overall progress of a Project by mapping it from Milestone to Milestone. 
  • Calendar: A master view showcasing all Task volumes and due dates.
  • Kanban: A view to move Tasks (represented as cards) easily and facilitate an easy drag-and-drop working style.
  • Swimlane: A Kanban-style display that showcases Tasks across multiple Milestones, allowing you to move them around with drag-and-drop motions.
  • Custom: Apply various filters to sort Tasks and save the particular view for future reference. 

3. Tasks & Subtasks

a. Jira

For Jira Work Management

Track tasks of a larger workflow as issues in Jira Work Management. 

An issue can have:

  • Subtasks to split an issue into smaller to-dos
  • Assignees to complete the work
  • Reporters to monitor the work
  • Descriptions
  • Labels
  • Time tracking
  • Status
  • Attachments

Note: Subtasks can be assigned to the person assigned the parent issue or to other people involved in the project.

For Jira Software

Break work into smaller chunks or tasks with issues.

An issue allows you to add other relevant information, such as:

  • Assignees who’ll work on the task
  • Reporter whom the assignee must report to
  • Child issues or subtasks to complete within the issue
  • Priority
  • Start date and end date
  • Labels
  • Status
  • Attachment

Subtasks can be linked to issues to create a task dependency.

b. Nifty

Tasks are the individual objectives within a project that live inside Task Lists and can be assigned to single to multiple assignees. 

Completing Tasks contributes towards completing Milestones.

Edit a task with details like:

  • Descriptions
  • Comments
  • Assignees
  • Attachments
  • Dependencies
  • Statuses
  • And more

Further split a Task into Subtasks, each with its own level of detailing as a Task. Each Subtask has its own set of descriptions, comments, assignees, etc. Completing Subtasks doesn’t contribute to Milestone completion.

4. Statuses

a. Jira

In both Jira Software and Jira Work Management, use the default ‘To do,’ ‘In progress,’ and ‘Done’ statuses to indicate progress. Each status has a dedicated column on the Board. You can customize the statuses to suit your workflow.

 

b. Nifty

Nifty offers four default Statuses: To Do, In Progress, Review, and Completed — displayed on all Boards. You can change the Statuses for each Task or Milestone to reflect these. Besides these, users can customize their Board and add more statuses or change their colors.

Moreover, you can use custom statuses to visualize Project-level status too. 

5. Checklists

a. Jira

Jira doesn’t offer native functionality to add checklists to your tasks. 

b. Nifty

Nifty lets you add multiple Checklists to each Task and Subtask. Marking items on the Checklist reflections completion percentage on a progress bar for each list. 

6. Task Templates

a. Jira

Jira doesn’t have a native capability of creating issue templates. However, it does allow you to auto-populate an issue’s fields based on pre-set values in team-managed projects.

b. Nifty

Save the layout of any Task or Milestone as a Template that you can reuse and apply to other Tasks or Milestones.

Each template contains fields for:

  • Description
  • Start / Due Date offsets
  • Subtasks
  • Custom Fields
  • Embeds

Once saved, you can customize it further. 

7. Assignees

a. Jira

To assign an issue to a team in Jira Software, go to the Fields menu and add the Team column to your Board. This will let you assign any issue to a whole team.

b. Nifty

Nifty lets you assign Tasks, Subtasks, and Portfolios to single or multiple team members. Assigning a Task to a team member will automatically assign its Subtasks to them, too. 

8. Priorities

a. Jira

Jira Software

Suppose you’re using Jira Software’s Agile project management features and have enabled ranking in the project’s settings. You can rank an issue by dragging and dropping it to the relevant position in the Scrum or Kanban backlog. 

You can also set priorities using custom fields in the issue’s settings. This now lets you add custom priority levels to each issue. 

Jira Work Management

Create a new field with various priority levels and save it to add custom priority levels to each issue. 

b. Nifty

Nifty offers four default Priority tags: High, Medium, Low, and Blocked. Besides these, you can create and edit any number of custom Priority tags. 

9. Automations

a. Jira

Both Jira Software and Jira Work Management offer an extensive library of automations. Create automation rules by setting triggers, conditions (refining criteria), and actions.

b. Nifty

Nifty lets you create the following automations:

  • Custom If/Then Workflow Automations
  • Automated Progress Reporting with Milestones
  • Automated Task Assignments based on Task Status
  • Automated Task Grouping

B. Time Management

Time is money for a reason. 

The right software can be the difference between pinching pennies and raking in the big bucks.

Effective project management software offers effortless time management features to help you befriend the clock. 

With the right one, expect to keep all your tasks running as scheduled and meet your deadlines with ease. 

Features to look out for include:

  • Due dates: Communicate expected delivery dates.  
  • Time estimates: Make capacity decisions based on how much time each task or project is expected to take. 
  • Time tracking: Measure productivity with accurate time consumption data for each team member. 

1. Due Dates

a. Jira

Jira Software

You can schedule a deadline by adding a due date while creating or editing an issue. However, you need Schedule Issues permission from an administrator. 

Jira Work Management

You can add due dates for issues in Jira Work Management by adding a Custom Field.

Alternatively, you can schedule due dates for items in your business projects by dragging them to the specific date on your calendar.

b. Nifty

When you set due dates for your Tasks, Nifty will automatically calculate the due date for Milestone based on the duration for all Tasks that comprise it.

Moreover, Tasks Dependent on each other have cascading due dates. This means that when you change the due date for one Task, Nifty automatically changes them correspondingly for the other Dependent Tasks. 

2. Time Estimates

a. Jira

You can add time estimates to the time tracking feature to show assignees how much time they have left to complete an issue. The timer counts down based on how much time they track while working on the issue.

It works for both Jira Work Management and Jira Software. 

b. Nifty

Nifty allows you to add Story Points to each Task. Based on them, it automatically sets time estimates for Milestones. Typically 1 point accounts for roughly 1 day of work. 

3. Time Tracking

a. Jira

The native time tracking feature in Jira Work Management and Jira Software enables users to record the time they spend working on issues. 

b. Nifty

Use Nifty’s native Time Tracker to track time for each individual Task. You can easily edit this tracked time information or add manual entries of the time you worked on each Task.

Users can access detailed Logs of all their recorded time on Nifty. 

C. Reporting

What you can’t measure, you can’t improve. 

Reporting and analytics features can help you track real-time progress, monitor key metrics, and sniff out bottlenecks like a detective.  

Armed with these insights, your team can stay ahead of the curve no matter the situation. 

Expect better resource management, superior deadline compliance, and a more focused and decisive team.

Features to look out for include:

  • Goals and milestones: Record targets for the whole team to see and work towards.
  • Dashboards: Visualize data from all corners of the team into a user-friendly, interactive interface.
  • Gantt charts: Keep your plans flexible with Gantt charts that allow you to adjust timelines based on changing resource availability and task completion ratio. 

1. Goals & Milestones

a. Jira

Jira Software lets you combine issues from boards, projects, and filters to map your goals with Jira plans. Other capabilities include:

  • Establish and view dependencies that can affect your plan.
  • Experiment with plans without impacting issues.
  • Set due dates, sprint dates, release dates, etc.

b. Nifty

A Milestone in Nifty refers to a collection of Tasks that form a high-level objective in a Project. Which is why they’re also referred to as ‘Task Lists.’ Each Milestone is auto-updated as and when you move around the Tasks that comprise it. 

You can even create Dependencies between various Milestones within a Project. This blocks the Tasks in Dependent Milestones until the preceding Milestone is achieved. 

A step further than this is a Goal. A Nifty Goal lets you track progress across Projects and Portfolios. To set a Goal, you need to select:

  • Progress Source: The Tasks and Lists (Milestones) that make up the Goal
  • Track Metric: Whether the Goal depends on the number of Tasks completed, time tracked, Story Points, or any other Custom Field you decide
  • Target: Whether the Track Metric will dynamically update itself or will need a static (predefined) target

Goals progress as the Tasks within them progress. 

2. Dashboards

a. Jira

Jira Software and Jira Work Management dashboards both offer an initial view upon login to create multiple personalized displays for diverse project overviews.

You can customize the dashboard with gadgets that summarize issue data. Available gadgets include:

  • Charts
  • Labels
  • Issue calendar
  • Assigned to me
  • Quick links
  • Roadmaps

Select a layout preference for your dashboards, star favorites, and share dashboards with others. You can also find shared dashboards by filtering per owner, group, or project.

b. Nifty

A Nifty Project Dashboard uses widgets to display the status of Roadmaps, Tasks, Discussions, Docs, and Files in a particular Project. 

3. Gantt Charts

a. Jira

Jira Software

Jira Software allows you to create Gantt charts in two ways — Roadmaps (timeline view) and advanced roadmaps.

Basic roadmaps are great for planning dates, dependencies, and deliverables for a single team and project.

Meanwhile, advanced roadmaps offer the following additional features:

  • Plan and track work across teams, visualize data, and plan for future progress or obstacles.
  • Select issue sources from boards, projects, or filters to gather data for plan creation.
  • Expand issue hierarchies above the epic level to track larger goals.
  • Allocate work, manage team capacity, and evaluate risks.
  • Explore alternative paths through scenarios and plan for different outcomes.
  • Define milestones, manage shippable chunks of work, and align dates across multiple projects with single-project or cross-project releases.
Jira Work Management

Jira Work Management doesn’t offer roadmaps, but the Timeline view can function as a Gantt chart.

It allows you to adjust start and due dates, and reorder, link, and filter issues.

b. Nifty

Milestones — or a List of Tasks that form a high-level objective in Nifty — can be displayed as a Gantt chart. 

This timeline-style view lets you see the selected Task’s name, due date, and assignees in the sidebar, while the main view gives you a complete overview of where the Task stands in the Milestone. 

D. User Management

Software, features, and other tech things aside, the real heroes of any project are your team members. So make sure to pick the kind of project management software that puts them front and center!

How do you do this?

Look for software that knows what different team members need and helps you deliver the right experience. 

Features to look out for include:

  • User groups: Create internal teams representing various departments, functions, or projects. 
  • Permission levels: Grant different access levels depending on the users’ information requirements and the company’s security concerns. 
  • Guest users: Invite team members from other companies/teams to collaborate with your team without compromising on confidential data. 

1. User Groups

a. Jira

Create groups of people who share similar responsibilities and require similar access to issues. Grant each group a different permission level on each project. 

b. Nifty

Besides the four default user roles, you can create Custom Roles on Nifty and tailor every bit of access they get.

Plus, you can add Custom User Tags to a user’s profile to indicate things like their geography, work shifts, departments, etc. This will help you sort and filter users via tags.

2. Permission Levels

a. Jira

Jira Software

Jira Software lets you choose between whether people are Administrators, Members, or Viewers on a team-managed project. Create more custom roles for each project to share the most relevant projects, tasks, and conversations with each team member. 

Jira Work Management

Add or remove people to projects based on your requirements. You can also assign them one or multiple roles on the project. 

b. Nifty

Nifty offers four default types of user roles:

  • Owner: In charge of billing
  • Admins: Can create Portfolios and Projects, invite other Team Members and Guests, and promote them as Admins 
  • Team Members: Can create Projects and invite other Team Members and Guests to Nifty
  • Guests: Can join only by invite and cannot access anything not shared with them 

Barring a few core functionalities, such as those related to the creation of realms and inviting/removing members, most other permissions are shared across all users on Nifty. 

Team Members predominantly have edit and invite/remove access only to their Projects.

3. Guest Users

a. Jira

Jira Software and Jira Work Management don’t have guest users. But you can allow anonymous users to view, search, and create issues without logging in. 

b. Nifty

Guest users on Nifty get access only to the specific Projects shared with them.

E. Collaboration

In project management, collaboration and communication are like a ballroom dance — if everyone isn’t in sync, you’re just stepping on each other’s toes!

A project manager should encourage their team to be on the same page regarding everything happening on the project. This could involve regular meetings, periodic status updates, shared checklists, etc. 

But things can get tricky when you add different team structures (remote, hybrid, distributed, etc.). 

The trick is to balance ‘informing everyone’ with ‘over-communicating.’ 

The solution is to forge a shared space where the whole team can contribute without hampering individual productivity. Picking a suitable project management software is the first step toward achieving this goal. 

Features to look for include: 

  • Comments: Simple ways to send feedback or discuss a task or project. 
  • Threads: Keep all relevant comments in a single thread. 
  • Tagging/@mention: Mention a team member on a task, in comments, or in any shared space to notify them. 
  • Sharing tasks: Share tasks with relevant team members for efficient collaboration.
  • File management: Attach and store files, create and annotate documents, etc., for ready access to project documentation. 
  • Notifications: Customize how team members receive notifications.

1. Comments, Threads, & Tagging

a. Jira

Add comments, code snippets, images, tables, and more on issues for better communication. 

Mention teammates in the comments and react to comments with emojis.

Copy the link to each comment to share externally.

Vote on issues to indicate their importance to team members. 

b. Nifty

Team Members can have project-specific discussions on dedicated channels for each Project in Nifty. Here, they can post a message in text, emoji, or GIFs and even react to each other’s messages. 

Nifty discussion channels let you create threads and pin messages too.

2. File Management

a. Jira

Both Jira Software and Jira Work Management offer you the option to attach files to each issue to describe them better. You can also attach these files in comments or long text fields.

Just copy-paste the link to attach files from external services like Dropbox or Google Drive.

b. Nifty

Nifty’s Files tool lets you upload and manage all relevant files with ease. You can even comment on them directly in Nifty to keep your feedback organized and accessible. 

3. Notifications

a. Jira

Both Jira Software and Jira Work Management let you choose which team members are notified about issue-related changes. 

Watchers, assignees, users, reporters, or project leads can get notified of changes such as:

  • Comments
  • New issue logged
  • Issues deleted, etc. 

b. Nifty

Nifty currently offers support for browser push notifications across Chrome. Firefox, Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge. 

You can change your Nifty notifications to pick and choose what you get notified for.

F. Customer Support

Individual users in smaller teams often face a steep learning curve with most project management software. 

In their case, having access to responsive support executives and a wealth of helpful resources can make a significant difference, turning a frustrating experience into a positive one.

However, customer support is just as crucial for larger teams. 

Even if these teams initially received thorough onboarding and training, their needs and use cases tend to evolve over time. Continuous and adaptable customer support becomes essential to address these changing needs effectively.

With adequate customer support, you can:

  • Derive maximum value from the app with the help of professional guidance whenever required
  • Ensure your team is making full use of all the features you’re paying for
  • Learn from case studies of other teams using the same software
  • Expand your use cases with time
  • Learn about the features your team uses the most and avoid spending on those you don’t need
  • Solve minor issues on your end by going through help resources
  • Get hands-on support when you get stuck
  • Keep a record of all your complaints and feedback for the platform to aid future buying decisions
  • Send feedback to the app’s developers so they can design the features you most desire

Features to look for include:

G. Platforms Supported

Distributed and field teams might not always be armed with laptops or computers. 

But that doesn’t mean productivity has to stop.

With a mobile-friendly project management tool, the workflow keeps humming along, turning those smartphones into mighty workflow tools.

More reason to look into this?

If your company follows a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach, your team members need the freedom to switch between various devices. 

With support for all types of apps, you can:

  • Ensure uniform access irrespective of device type
  • Save on the cost of buying the same types of devices for the whole team
  • Give all team members a chance to log work from anywhere, anytime

H. Pricing

Whether you have deep pockets or shoestring budgets, there’s project management software out there for every kind of organization. 

But the confusing combination of features and numbers on pricing pages can make it difficult to choose. 

Here are some easy tips for starters.

If you plan on buying the software subscription for just yourself or a small team that’s not likely to grow rapidly anytime soon — stick to the free plan as long as possible. Or pick the cheapest monthly subscription possible. These should cover most of your feature requirements comfortably in most cases. 

However, if you expect to hire rapidly and grow to a sizable number, go for a plan that grows with you — ideally with a per-user rate that doesn’t add up exponentially. 

Finally, most software offers flexible enterprise plans that let you cherry-pick your favorite features into a custom package. If you’re part of such a team, it’s best to contact the sales team and get the best deal possible.

I. Best Suited To

Picking the right project management tool is like finding the perfect pair of shoes. They must be a snug fit but also leave you some wiggle room to get comfortable! 

In other words, the tool you pick must fit all your current needs and grow alongside your future requirements, too. 

So make sure you’ve covered all bases in your research when picking project management software for your team. 

One way to do this is to check what types of teams your choice serves best. 

For instance, what works for a small software development team might not suit a large marketing agency. 

When hunting for a PM solution, it’s vital to match the tool’s features and use cases with your team’s workflow. Tailor your search to find a tool with all the necessary features to manage your tasks and boost productivity.

Jira Verdict

In particular, Jira is expertly designed for:

  • Software development teams
  • DevOps teams
  • Product management teams
  • Agile teams

It’s perfect for managing complex projects with many moving parts, granular tasks, and dependencies. Additionally, it’s well set up to handle work requests for things like bug fixing or IT support tickets.

Jira takes visualizing work to a whole new level so that you can spot all the intricacies and interconnectedness of your issues and projects.

However, all this functionality means it’s far too complicated for most standard project management teams. 

Jira can be a game changer for technical teams that use its agile and issue management features.  

However, teams with simpler needs may find that Jira has a lot of features that just won’t be useful for their work.

Nifty Verdict

Nifty lives up to its name in more ways than one. 

It’s a fantastic project management tool with a comprehensive feature set that covers most basic to intermediate use cases. A tool for many trades, Nifty packs quite the punch — starting with its multiple views. 

Besides the standard List and Calendar views, a Nifty user can view their tasks in the Swimlane view that pulls information from multiple Milestones/Lists simultaneously. This unique twist on a traditional view allows you to compare progress and multitask like never before!

And then there’s the ability to add multiple Checklists within Tasks, letting you add every intricate detail to each to-do. Finally, users can create as many custom Priority tags as they need.

A few sore points stick out, though. 

For example, many users find the lack of resource allocation, cost-tracking, and visual ideation (mind mapping or whiteboards) features jarring. Moreover, its free plan — allowing just two projects — is extremely limiting to all but the smallest scale of operations. 

However, despite these limitations, features like interactive Gantt charts, time estimates in Story Points, Milestones, and more endear Nifty to Scrum Masters and Agile project managers. 

This is why Nifty remains a versatile project management software that offers tough competition to market leaders.
