How can I highlight issues that are blocked by issues with status != done?

My overall goal is to be able to see at a glance at the board which tickets are not ready for work because they are linked "is blocked by" to another ticket that is not finished.




  • I have a board showing ISS-1 & ISS-2 in the TODO column (status: todo)
  • ISS-2 is linked to ISS-1 with a "is blocked by" link (ISS-1 must be completed first)




  1. Issue 2 is visually offset (highlighted) on the board as being "blocked", i.e. "blocked by" an issue that is not done
    👉this could be by flag, or by ticket color, or even setting priority to blocked. Any visual offset on the board
  2. When ISS-1 is transitioned to "status: done", it is possible to see on the board that ISS-2 is no longer blocked, and is ready for work
    👉 i.e. remove the flag, priority:blocked, or color highlight
