SmartDraw will add a card for each Jira issue selected. The card will contain the issue summary and key. SmartDraw will also pull in all the relevant icons, a link to Jira, the assignee, associated sprint, the issue priority, and so on.

Once you imported some Jira issues, the SmartPanel Tool view (click on the toolbox icon in the left bar) will have some relevant commands that let you update Jira tasks and even create new Jira cards to push into Jira.

You can collaborate with your team in SmartDraw and if you have a new idea that comes up in a brainstorming session, you can easily add that as a new Jira issue and push that issue back to your Jira instance. Click Create New Jira Issue in the SmartPanel to bring up the dialog to add a Jira issue.
