How can we use the planning option and plan the issues by due date? How can I make the issues's due date appears at the planning screen?

Hey @Monique Campos - welcome to Atlassian Community
You can configure cards on a board to display up to three additional fields. The fields can be different for the Backlog and Active sprints, if you are using a Scrum board.

  • Go to the desired board, then click  Board >  Configure.
  • Click Card layout, then add or delete fields as desired.

Thank you! But do you know how can i use this at the planning resource? I need to plan the activities by the issue's due date, but it never appears to me at the screen that I'm using to plan.

You're most welcome. We're all here to help each other.

To sort the issues on your board by due date, you'll have to change your board filter.

There's a pretty good description on this and its side effects:

To sum it up: You can have a board displayed by due date, but you won't be able to drag and drop the issues to later / earlier due dates. This could lead to some confusion.

My recommendation: Just use a dashboard and its "Filter Results" Gadget if you'd like to get an overview on the issues you want to organize. Some more gadgets and reporting options would be able to enhance your planning further. With this as a basis you could then rank your issues.

Your filter could look like this (written blind):

project="BLUBB" AND statusCategory!=Done ORDER BY duedate DESC

Of course you could also get some intelligent automatics into this. But this is another topic.

I'm already using a filter. This is what I have:



And I would like to be able to sort or to see the due date at the little tickets that Jira shows me on the rigth bar, so I can plan all the issues into the calendar.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
