Atlassian just released its new Jira cloud feature – Team Central (Coming in March 2021).
This is a central communication place for all your project information content. It give everyone access to real-time progress, potential problems, and priorities, in a digestible feed they’ll actually read.

On the main tab (updates) you can see the status of the projects you are following, so you can track them, see collective information gathered for these projects, etc.
Project Owners can now set a weekly statuses, and everyone can track and share the overall project status. In Todays Working-From-Home situation, such tools are important, and makes the difference between engaged teams to “non of my business” teams.
The main capabilities using Team Central:
Project history – Remember what happened last week, and the week before…
Followers – Tell writers who’s reading their updates
Target date – Avoid unrealistic deadlines in favor of understanding a team’s confidence level
Team – See who, not just how many, are working on each project
Goals – Highlight the outcomes each project is driving towards
Linked projects – Make managing dependencies top-of-mind for every project owner
Automated reminders – Remind project owners to share and stakeholders to react without lifting a finger
Embed media – Woo your readers with video updates, presentations, and easy media uploads
Org-wide format – Align all teams on the same foundational project questions
This is a long missing functionality that many organizations were long looking for.
