Hope you are all doing well.
I am battling with board settings on one of our sites.
Please note that both sites are on a standard plan and I am an administrator on both of the site.
One sit 1 everything is working perfect and i am able to update swimlanes, board setting etc.
On site 2 I have an option to configure boards but there is no swimlanes to change.
Please could you guide me why there is a difference and how do i update the site without the board settings to be able to update swimlanes?
Please refer to my screen shot attached.
The only out of the box swimlanes functionality for Team-managed project boards is the Group by function. And it only applies to a few fields (Assignee, Epic, etc. )
The only other option that I am aware of is to create a new board that uses a board filter based on the Team-managed project. But you can't put the project in the Location field - you will have to use the value of Personal Profile or select another project in the list. Whatever value you put in the field will not affect the cards that show on the board.
Then you can add swimlanes like you do with Company-managed projects for that new board.
@Marc Koppelaar is correct. I would also recommend spending some time on the differences between company-managed and team-managed projects. Company-managed projects are much flexible to meet complex requirements, while team-managed projects get a team going quickly, but are much less flexible.
I say this because there will be times when teams need a new project and understanding the differences will help you make the correct recommendation. As it can be brutal if you select the wrong project type and have to migrate to the other. :)
I am working in a company-managed project but i can't figure out where to set the swimlanes. I don't have any settings on the actual board - i think its a global setting somewhere in my account but i can't figure out where
Can someone help me configure it?
