color coding cards

Can you color code Issues/cards by the length of time they have been in a column?

for example if the card is in the first column for more than 5 days it turns red under 5 its green?

Hi David,

No, but you have a visual indicator of the time an issue has been in a column.

In your board config, select the Colums tab and check the 'days in column' indicator. It will show you some dots on each card. If you hover over them, you will see the exact amount of days the issue has been in that column.

You can use JQL to color issues.

E.g. below is the JQL that issue was In Progress Less than 10 days.

status changed to "In Progress" before -10d AND status = "In Progress"

I set card colors by duedate on my kanban like this:

But obviously, you'd need to make your queries using 'status changed' and whatever statuses are in your column, like:

status="In Progress" AND not status changed after -2w

Or something like that.
