What is the easiest way to get an overview of multiple projects in Jira Work Management? Unfortunately, there is no option to create projects or boards based on filters (as is the case in Jira Software). Does anyone have any tips for this?
Also Dashboards is not really a good option for us.
Thank you very much.
Hello @Larissa Kissner
Exactly what do you want to include in your view?
Why does using a Dashboard not suit your needs?
Are you using a Premium or Enterprise subscription? If so, have you looked at Overviews?
Do you have the Jira Software product available in your Jira instance? If so, then you can use the functionality from that to create a filter for multiple Jira Work Management projects and create a board from the saved filter. The board would be visible only to users that have been granted Jira Software Product licenses.
Thanks for your answer. We do have access to Jira Software, although the majority of our users only have access to Jira Work Management.
We already tried to work with Dashboards, but this wasn´t really a good option for interactive working.
An ideal overview would basically look like a Kanban board, but it would include tickets from different projects and allow various filters to be applied (I know that´s only possible in Jira Software).
Hi @Larissa Kissner,
I am Marlene from codefortynine.
With our app Quick Filters for Jira Dashboards you can create cross-project dashboards.
Simply create a "Project Filter" on the Quick Controller gadget and filter the dashboard gadgets per projects. Of course you can create other filters (dropdown, button or input field), from most Jira fields or custom JQL.
just to put out another option, if you could imagine a more spreadsheet-based overview, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.
JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting.
As every JXL sheet is powered by a JQL statement, you can build a cross-project view like e.g. the one below in just a couple of clicks:
I'm grouping by project and assignee here, but there virtually no limit on how you may want to slice and dice your data.
Any questions just let me know,
Hi, I think the simplest way in your case is using "advanced issue search."
You can use JQL example: "project in (PROJECT1, PROJECT2, PROJECT 3) AND status!= Done ORDER BY created DESC"
and export to CSV If you want
If it does not suit you, I recommend that you use the TeamBoard ProScheduler add-on. It helps you in creating programs with multiple projects.
You may also manage multiple projects in calendar view with Schedule., as well as a Gantt chart, timeline view, and log work.
TeamBoard also has a dashboard and reports for multiple projects
