Quick filters are a really useful tool in Scrum and Agile boards, but I get confusion from my users. For example out issues go through several distinct periods, PM, Dev, QA, Done. I have quick filters for each of these, but the work as "AND" buttons. if I want to filter on Dev & QA, I have to create a new filter.
Is there a way to "OR" the filters, so I can click on two filters and get the "OR"ed result?
I would love to be able to configure filters to be grouped mutually exclusive, like radio buttons. The UI should be displayed as a group of buttons, (e.g.: http://getbootstrap.com/components/#btn-groups )
You would define a group by adding a group (displayed as a drop area) in the quick filters option, and then dragging the filters into that group.
One of the ways to display and/or filters might be to have panels: buttons within a single panel enforce OR conditions, and filters checked in different panels enforce AND conditions. That would be just perfect from my point of view and should be quite user friendly and clear.
I am actually running into the exact problem. I have a need to display 1 OR many projects issues based off a label. When I select multiple projects, it uses the logical operator of "and" instead of "or" and immediately displays 0 results (since an issue can only be to 1 project). I understand the logic of "and", and agree it should still exist. Having the option to create "or" filters would be a huge help.
I found a solution to the problem.
It is necessary to use inverse logic.
For example, you have three projects: P1, P2, P3.
And you want to display issues from these projects in different combinations.
You need to create three quick filters:
Name: Hide P1
JQL: project != "P1"
Name: Hide P2
JQL: project != "P2"
Name: Hide P3
JQL: project != "P3"
Now, by switching these filters, you can choose any variation of the project mapping:
P1 + P2 + P3
P1 + P2
P1 + P3
P2 + P3
