How can I get TASK into the backlog in a KANBAN board?


I´m trying to set up a KANBAN board, but I can´t get any TASK into the Backlog

I use 4 column: Backlog, ToDo, In process and Done.

But TASK only have 3 different statuses...

How should I do to get them into the Backlog?


Best regards

Hi @Mikael Johansson


Do you wanna view the TASK in backlog column or backlog issues?


Primary setup is filter.Filter should retrieve task issues.

  • If you want to setup the task in Backlog column just map the Task status in that column(kanban backlog) as per your requirement.
  • If you want to view the tasks in backlog issues just check out the filter setup.

Have a look at your filters defined for the Kanban board. You can find these filters in the board settings -> General. Make sure that this fitlers select required tasks.


I have a filter for the board (label = ME_SW_KANBAN).

Can I have another filter for the Backlog?

You can change this filter as you want.
