How can I see the count of issues per assignee in Backlog?

Hi! I was wondering if there is a simple and easy way to see how many issues have been assigned to a specific person. I found this picture as a referenceJira.PNG

Typically next to the Search box (to the left of "Quick Filters" above the sprints) there is a set of Avatars for the assigned users. Click on the avatar and each list (sprints and backlog) will be filtered to the issue assigned to that user. At the top of each list will be the text "# of ## issues visible". That tells you how many issues in that list are assigned to the selected user.

hello, Do you know how to switch this view on, as i do not see this avatars next to my search box...

Usually i know it was always there in my previous projects, but not now 

Hello @Rafał Mazur 

Welcome to the community.

The avatars should appear automatically if any of the issues are assigned to users.

Can you start a new thread for your issue of not seeing Avatars, and provide a screen image of what you are seeing?

sure, thanks for your answer. New thread here:
