Jira's release note feature for versions is fine for internal-facing release notes, but lacks the ability to filter out issues, and presents the summary as the description for the notes. When generating release notes for external publication, organizations often need to filter out sensitive information, and may want more user-friendly descriptions. Learn how Roll20 uses a custom field, some Confluence macros, and a Chrome plugin to generate one weekly release note for 6 teams that is both internal and external facing.
