The Problem

We often post comments in Jira too soon or by mistake. We often realize immediately that the comment is wrong, regret posting it and want to take back, but it's unfortunately too late. The notifications have been sent and the stakeholders will know even if you update the comment later.

How wonderful would it be if we just could undo all that?

The Solution

This was impossible before and remained a dream of users, but Quick Undo for Jira makes it a reality now.

All you need to do now to take a bad comment or field edit back soon after posting it is just click the undo button in a small snackbar that appear in the corner of your screen when you post a comment or make an edit. Doing this retracts the comment or field edit and returns you to the editing mode. You can make changes and repost or just change your mind and delete it completely. And the best part is that nobody will know that you even posted anything. Pure magic.

How does this work?

Of course, there is nothing magical about this. Yes, the user experience is smooth and it creates a full illusion that comments and field edits are being posted and then taken back with no trace left, but in reality we achieve that with a simple trick. Quick Undo delays posting your comments and field edits but pretends that they were posted normally. This tricks people minds into actually reading what they posted with a more critical eye and allows them to spot problems. If that happens, they click undo and instruct Quick Undo to not post the comment or field edit and switch back into editing mode instead. If all is good, then Quick Undo will simply post the comment or field edit with a tiny delay. Simple but powerful.
