Configurable Kanban columns other than status?

The documentation on Kanban column configuration is very clear – Columns are based on global statuses – I am wondering if anyone else ever felt the need try JQL (even if it disabled drag & drop).

If you ever felt that need, what did you try instead?   I am considering using Confluence columns backed by JIRA filters.    Any other suggestions welcome.

Technically, it's not a Kanban board if you're not using "columns = position in the process"  (and that's determined by status in JIRA)

But, for non-Kanban boards that look like Kanban, have a look at Comala's Canvas.  It looks a lot like a board, but you can use many different fields, you're not limited to status


Agree 100% on the "not a Kanban".    Currently, the development process is chaotic enough that the status field is not the greatest challenge.   Currently, need a more flexible board w/out going all to way to something like Trello.   This looks like it good do the job (and then some).   That said, the "I am considering Confluence" means picking a similar set of pages I had previously created and modifying them.
