I have started working with a team, in a scrum master type role, who has been using JIRA for a kanban type framework. Over the last 6-12 months, they have used JIRA to enter pretty much everything they do. This includes tracking whos on call, any HR/personal tasks like training and setting personal development goals for thier people leader, regularly scheduled meetings and even days off.
My current thinking (happy to be convinced otherwise) is this is not the best use of JIRA. My rationale is it makes the board complex as they now have to have disciplined use of labels and have complex filters in order to get views that just represent the project work.
I am wrong in asking them to remove the non-project issues?
Just to add, pretty much all the team are happy to remove this stuff, it's just one particular character who is objecting.
