Add people to new Kanban board

I have created a new Kanban board on our one project. This project has various kanban boards for various team members. On the other Kanban boards, when I open them, I can see round icons/avatars of all the people on the board, but on the new one I can only see myself, unassigned and one user.

How do I go about adding the rest of the people I want to have access to this board so that when we are on the board we can see them in the list of people?

I have tried to assign a call to another person and made the task the issue type that is linked to this board but they still do not show when I open the Kanban board.

Hi @Jacques Lowies , 


these round icons that you see are Quick Filters : if you click on one of these, it will show the issues assigned to that person.

It is not a list of people who can access your board, as anyone on your project can see and access all the project boards.

You can have a look at the boards documentation here :


Let me know if this helps, 



Thank you Alexis. That makes sense.

Now I am faced with another problem.

I have created some tasks:

But when viewing the board the people and the tasks are not showing:

Not sure what I did wrong here that the issues are not appearing on the board. They are assigned on this board.
