How can I add a link to a project board from the JIRA sidebar?

I would like to have a single click to a project board while viewing the overall JIRA dashboard.

Hi John,

Each board is having its own ID which is known as a RapidBoard ID in the URL. If you open an existing board and check the URL you should get that, you can then copy paste that URL in a new shortcut in the project sidebar.

Hope this helps!

Thanks but I want the board to be available in the JIRA sidebar, not the project sidebar.

If you're talking about Jira Cloud's sidebar (new layout), there's no way to add custom links in it as far as I know. Unfortunately I can't confirm as I'm running Server instances here.

Cheers

I also would like to have such a feature. Since we switched to the cloud I cannot navigate to my preferred dashboard as quickly as I used to do

your best option (or an option) is a bookmark on your browsers Favorite bar.

The idea is not that bad, I think I'll do it. But anyways I can't understand this design choice. Accessing the issue search also takes longer now then in earlier versions.

Agreed - we lost a lot of one and two click functionality with the latest design.  I am not seeing a lot of benefits from removing those items.
