I should be able to see and choose where the issue is displayed from any screen that makes its contents editable.
I feel like JIRA classic had a feature like this.
But it seems the only way to add an issue to a Board is to find it in the Backlog list and drag or move to board.
A simple workflow explaining this could be from any screen:
But I cant do step 4 from the issue, I have to specifically go to the backlog page, find the issue and move it to the board from the list. Then return to my previous location to continue.
Hi Ezra, welcome to the Community. So the Backlog is generally the starting point for all newly created issues. Moreover. The Backlog is defined by the initial status when an issue is created. The board represents the workflow and the transitions therein. So if the backlog is defined as the initial status it stands to reason that the issue begins there and is transitions from there to the board. If I am missing your point or this doesn’t make sense please let me know.
My point is that moving issues directly from the backlog is often cumbersome as it assumes a particular way of working with issues.
When discussing/scoping/refining issues for work our team would like to move them directly to the board once we finish editing them, but in the screen to edit the issue can cannot do that, we have to navigate to the backlog, find the issue and move it, then resume our previous workflow.
It might seem trivial, but as JIRA (continues) to run quite slowly, making those navigations during a fairly fast paced meeting takes far too much time and we frequently have to stop and wait for JIRA to catch up.
Simply being able to see if the issue is in the backlog or on the board or in a sprint from the issue's page and being able to edit it there quickly and easily would be most ideal.
Are you using scrum or Kanban board. If Kanban In Progress items will show in both places until it is on done. While it is on the backlog page it isn’t in the backlog section. Yes that can be confusing. So my question is, when you move an issue to In Progress is is showing in both places?
We are using a Kanban board.
If I take an issue that is on the Backlog page in the backlog section and change it's workflow from "To Do" to "In Progress",
The issue will remain in the backlog section of the backlog page and *not* move to the "Board" section on the backlog page and will *not* move to the board on the board page.
Issues in the backlog section of the backlog page with the workflow status "To Do" *do not* display in the "To Do" column of the Kanban board.
