I am setting up my Jira board for a project for the first time. How do I add the option Backlog to the board. I see the other fields in my left navigation panel such as issues. I do not have a backlog link option on my board.
JSM doesn’t offer a backlog board concept. This is typically used in software projects or even business projects. Now, you could create that concept on your JSM project. My suggestion of how to do this would depend on more information from you.
Arcolia, as I indicated the Concept of a backlog especially in the form of a board is foreign to JSM. How are you define the backlog Q depends on how you define backlog at all in this GSM project. For example maybe you have a unique status called “backlog“. In this example you might define the queue simply as - status = backlog and statuscategory != done. Again as I stated I need to understand what backlog means to you in this project. When do you put something into the backlog or maybe every new issue goes to the backlog directly?
Have you already created a board? If so, of which type (Kanban/Scrum)?
From the first option "Board" I seem to recognize there is no board yet.
In case there is a board of type "Kanban" you can switch to Board settings (Board >> Board Settings). There you can pull a status to "Kanban backlog".
Then a separate backlog appears.
The said is valid for a company-managed project - please double check and let us know what you are seeing.
