Hi @Spyros Iordanopoulos 

Just created a new SCRUM board with the same filter as in your Kanban board.


Would this affect the running project?

No, agile board is another layer on top of Jira Core. It provides additional functionality but if you remove the Kanban board and start using SCRUM board the Issue data and status will stay as it is.

Hi Spryros - No, you will need to create a new board based on the same filter and delete the current board. 

Do you have to delete the current board? I saw in another thread some people use Kanban for planning and scrum for more in-depth tracking.

No you can simply create a new board.

One exception - in Cloud you can switch between Scrum and Kanban.

Really helpful. Thanks.
