I have three columns 'To Do',In progress, Done in a project 'test123'. and I have statuses a,b,c,d,e,f. I want to divide the statuses within the columns and display the names of the statuses under the column name.

For example

________________________________________________________________________________

                        To Do                           |               In progress                    |            Done

_________________________________________________________________________________

                   a        I          b                   |               c      I      d                     |        e    I     f

I don't think that's what Adi4533 is looking for. (correct me if I'm wrong in my assumption)

If you have a column 'To Do' and maps statuses "Open" and "Stalled", can JIRA display the status names "Open" and "Stalled" in the column header, in addition to the column name? 

I think this has been answered before and it can't be done without serious hacking in javaScript?

I think you're right, I read it differently, but it makes more sense on re-reading.

It's not possible, as you say.  Or rather the javascript is very complex and breaks in interesting ways (and you can't drag between the columns it renders).

A better solution is to simply split your columns with the same names as the status.  (Then think about much more simple hacks to add a title)

Go to the board configuration and then "columns" and put the status you want to map into the right columns.
