Display issues from different boards in a unique board

Hi everyone,

After trying out a lot of different options with no success, I hope you'll be bale to help me out ;)

I want to display issues from different board on a unique kanban board.
The idea is to avoid switching from a board to another when I work on multiple projects at the same time and have all issues from all these projects displayed on a unique board.

I have Board A, B and C set as follow:
- Board A:
                1 issue TODO assigned to Jack
                1 issue TODO assigned to Joe
- Board B:
                1 issue TODO assigned to Jack
                1 issue TODO assigned to Joe
- Board C:
                1 issue TODO assigned to Jack
                1 issue TODO assigned to Joe

On the Board A, I want to display issues assigned to Jack, in a TO DO status across board A, B and C.
I used the following quick filters but for some reasons, the issues from board B and C do not show up:
project in (A, B, C) AND status in ("To Do") AND resolution = Unresolved AND assignee in (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)

I even tried a simpler filter for debugging purposes, only issues from board A appear:
project in (A, B, C)

It's like the filter is not able to access these boards. Issues from board A (the actual board where I set the filter from) do show up.

Hope the description is clear enough, do not hesitate to ask for further details if needed.

Hi @Benjamin Prenom 

Just to understand you right: 

you plan and try to use a quick filter on board A to show issues from board B and C?

what filter is the base for the board itself? Does it include all boards = issues you want to display?

Because the usage of a quick filter Is to narrow the available issues within a board. Not across. 

so a solution would be:

1) Create a filter with all issues for all three boards 

2) create a new board with that filter as basis

3) create your different quick filters on that new board

4) and very important: check permissions on board and Basis filter 

Hi @nina_schmidt ,

Thanks for your answer, the steps you suggested work just fine!
Indeed, I had to create an "empty" board with this filter as a basis and use this board just to display issues from other boards.

It works well, thank you very much for your help!
