Favorite Boards on Planning Dropdown in left menu

cathy_gutowski March 7, 2024

I work in Jira in a structure where my features are in one Jira container and my stories are in a different one.  I work in several boards (1 scrum and 3 kanban) and move between them all day.  I have favorited my boards - I have 4.  2 of them are in the feature container and 2 in the story container. Other product owners in my feature container have their own set of boards. 

When I go to the left column  to drop down and select my boards, I get the choices of "Boards in this project" and "Other Boards".  I have to scroll to find the ones I want. 

Is is possible to have the top section to be "My Favorited Boards"?   

Yes, I know I can use the top menu to select Your Work > Boards > Starred.  But in the old version of Jira, Boards was a top level menu choice but in the new version now I have to remember which menu choice to find it under.  The left menu is so much easier to work with.

Hi Cathy,

You can go about this a couple of ways. One is to simply book mark the boards in your browser. That's what I tend to do. 

Another option is to rename the boards to start with a number or the letter A because the boards are listed alphabetically. 

Other than that, you will not be able to change the order in which they appear.
