Change swim lane view for others

I was trying to update the swim lane view for a Board; it looks right when I view the board but my co-workers don't see the changes - they only have the basic 3 default lanes.

The same is true for some filters I defined, the shortcuts that show at the top of the swim lanes.  I made a few new ones but I'm the only one that sees them.

What is causing this?  How can I propagate the swim lanes to everyone's view?

The first thing to check is that they are looking at the same board as you an that the board is shared. If you look at the board URL it will show something similar to this


this refers to board number 7. If the co-workers are indeed seeing board 7 then for the swimlanes you need to check whether the co-worker would actually see any issues matching the swimlane as an empty swimlane is not displayed. So for example if you have built your swimlanes using a test project that they do not have access to they will not see the swimlanes. 


It turns out my co-worker was on a different board.  I hadn't realized there was another one out there.

Thanks for the tips, Phill.
