Automated Release Notes
Hit the right note(s), right from the get go
Automate Release notes from creation to distribution with ARN, in multiple formats
Get the rote out of Notes
Release notes is an untapped exercise for customer & stakeholder communication. With targeted & useful content you can actually increase the engagement with your product & processes. Automated release notes for Jira takes away the tedious, manual stuff and brings in efficiency with the power of automation.
Quick formats, quicker sharing
Generating release notes after every update is a monotonous activity: the different kinds of formats, ensuring consistency with the previous release notes, highlighting and communicating changes to stakeholders – the effort is massive, and instead of writing them, your team could be doing something else that makes more business sense.
Read the customer’s mind (literally)
Frequent releases are difficult to keep track of for customers, as they have to decide if the version changes have any other dependencies. ARN helps them understand the changes through dedicated release pages and in-app widgets. Customer feedback on release notes can be recorded too, giving organizations a peek into their thought process. Setting the pages and widgets up is a one-time affair and it keeps customers in the loop forever via automation.
In order to trigger generation of release notes, rules can be set – so that relevant people or groups of people get the information they need, in the way they can quickly digest. Be it an email to the higher ups, a pdf for client review, or an email chain among colleagues – ARN can generate reports based on any rule that is set. Even webhooks are available for integrating with other tools.

Simplicity of ARN, seen through samples
All release notes are not made equal: some need to be accessed in a Confluence space, some as emails, and some as pdfs. But all of them need to have a structure, and that’s where ARN’s template library comes in. From notes designed as a simple table to ones untilizing sophisticated sequences, there is a template for every need.
Release time, effort and energy
The versatility of Automated release notes for Jira doesn’t stop at release notes – in fact, ARN makes almost every aspect of the ‘release’ part a breeze, and then some.
Release notes can be easily shared with the target audience. Be it Jira users, Jira user groups, Jira project roles or even external users. ARN even lets people subscribe to release notes via Release pages & widgets.
ARN helps in generating release notes based on target audience, thanks to the flexible nature of release notes templates that consist of JQL based sections. Also, the layouts can be customised to convey the message precisely.
Do not restrict yourself to use only the default issue attributes from Jira. Just configure the custom fields in the release notes templates & you are done. Customise them even further with field level settings as well as custom css.
