Can I include "Fix Versions" in a Board's "active Sprint" swimlane view?

Our Team works on different Stories per Sprint. Each of the Stories may not necessarily go into the same Product Version, i.e. each Story may have a different "Fix Version" assigned. We assign this on a Board's Backlog view via the "Version's panel", which results on labels floating on each entry ("line") of the Backlog.

Once the Story/Task/Bug is in the Sprint, this label is lost. I have the "active Sprint" separated via "Base swimlanes on: Stories".

Can we bring the label or the information back, so we can see which "Version" this story is contributing towards?

If there is no way to embed such a label / the information at all, we might have to work around via "parallel sprints", one for each "version"?

You can edit the cards under Board settings and see if fix version/s is an option to add there. I’m not where I can check that at the moment.

Hi Bertram

Yes you can. In the Active sprint view (or Backlog view actually), click on the three dots in the top right hand corner, choose Board settings then Card layout. For both the Backlog view and the sprint view, you can add up to 3 fields to show on the cards. What you're after is Affects versions

Dear Jack and Warren, 

thanks for your ideas. However, I tried your suggestions and, yes, it shows the information within the cards to be moved on the board. But I could not get the version on the story, i.e. the "swimlane" itself.

Cheers, Bertram

That is correct. You can’t dynamically label the swimlane. This desire was not clear in your original question. There may be a way to build a board that better meets your requirements but I’m not quite sure exactly what those requirements are. You may wish to consider quick filters for active versions.
