Dividing a Swimlane

To take advantage of the real estate left on the board I want to divide a swim lane from top to bottom and have the tp be in progress and the bottom be for a code review status.  Is this possible?

Hey Brandon - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You would need to create a second Swimlane with the different JQL for each Swimlane. That should accomplish what you are looking for. 

Doesn't that create a new vertical swimlane beside the existing lane?  I'm trying to have a single vertical with one query on top and another on the bottom...


Thank you for the reply,

Sounds like you are wanting to order the issues inside the swimlane. Is that correct? 

You can do that with the ORDER BY function (ORDER BY Status Desc) at the end of your query. But realize if you do that you will lose the ability to drag the cards up and down to re-prioritize.
