Solverboard has been built to integrate with many different tools, and we'll be building these up over time based on your feedback. (Post in our forum and let us know what you'd like to see.)


Our current integration allows you to create, link to and manage items within your Atlassian Jira software instance. This enables you to keep a birds-eye view of your work and its individual items without duplication of effort in two platforms.


The look-up function lets you search easily for existing items within Jira and simply link them up to your Solverboard projects and items.
