Where did days in column go?

There used to be a checkbox for showing days in column on issues in an active sprint. This seems to have disappeared in our cloud instance.


Does anyone know if this is a configuration issue or has the functionality been removed from Jira Cloud?

Hello Timothy,

Days in columns is a feature that can be enabled or disabled on board settings.
To enable or disable it you'll need to have jira-administrator or project-administrator permissions on the board.

Click on the three dots icon on your board > board settings > Card layout
You'll see the option to show Days in columns.

Kind regards,
Douglas Braun

Ah, it moved :-)


Thank you!

Has it since moved again? I cannot find it. I do have the appropriate permissions.

OK... I understand it now... we have a "Next-gen" board, which does offer this feature...

@Wouter Van den Broeck Does Not*


Was confused for a while because of the contradictory statement there. :)

Very lame... why does Next-gen not include this?

Is there any way to show 'X days in the column' directly? No need to hover over the dots.

As Juan Wang (above) pointed out; it would be very nice to be able to choose whether you see the dots or the actual number. We're still pretty new to agile in my company, so dealing with blockers and WIP is a real, daily, thing. This would help us identify where we have issues, but having to hover over every story's dots every time is pretty annoying.

Its available under Configuration --> Columns -->
