In the previous version of JIRA, it was easy enough to create a board in an existing project. You could do it from the project, or you could also go to the "boards" tab in the main nav. However, if I do not already have a board, there is no way to create a new board in the new JIRA UI.
Funny enough, if you do have a board in your project, you can create another by clicking on the three dots in the project's board view.
It makes it difficult to set up a new project, because I now have to create from Scrum or Kanban, and go back and set up the all schemes I need. I would much prefer to copy from an old project structure, and only have to set up the board.
As you mentioned, the 'Create board' option is available on the Boards tab, but this tab is shown only if your project already has a board. So if you have no board, you cannot access the 'Create board' option...
However, you may go to a different project that does have a board (or even create a bogus project if necessary), in order to be able to access the 'Create board' option. Once in the 'Create board' UI, you'll have the chance to indicate which project(s) your new board will include.
Super horrible user experience. There's got to be a better way to get boards added to a new project without several clicks. Currently the easiest way is to switch back to the old theme and click the dropdown beneath the project info in the top left side of the screen.
I am in a project that has a board but I do not see any option (nor the 3 dots) to create a new board. I agree that this part of the I/F is terrible. Why is it so difficult?
Atlassian - are you listening???
@Mark Malamutyou can create a new board as follows:
if you create a lot of boards and 3-clicks is undesirable you might bookmark the https://urcompany.atlassian.net/secure/ManageRapidViews.jspa link.
We extensively use "Create Project from Shared Configuration" and the lack of ability to create a board within the project (that option doesn't create a board for you, even if the previous project had one) is a horrendous UX mistake!
Yes, there are work around, but this needs to be fixed...what were they thinking?
Totally agree. We are missing the possibility to define our own Project Default Configurations so much, it's unbelievable. We can get the isse screen schemes from "Create Board from Shared Configuration", but than we have to add a board in a really painful way. As we do need to add up to ten projects per day - is this really the way it is meant to be?
Needs to be fixed really fast, as this could be a stopper for using JIRA in future.
Well before just finding the option to Create a Board was the issue. I've resolved that by doing the workaround via "Search > View All Board > Create". Now my issue is that when I do this to create a board, the list of projects I can parent to doesn't include any of my newly-created projects. My guess are because they are of the Agility template? But the UI forces me to use that template when creating projects.
You can use "Create project with shared configuration", this link is available on "Create project" dialog screen. This will create new project which shares all the configs with existing project you've chosen as a template.
This is a huge huge problem for Jira Cloud users that renders the "Create project with shared configuration" option completely useless for the way we use our organization.
The kanban board is an essential component to Jira - why does this template option remove the ability for a board or not have a default blank board like you would normally have when creating a project from scratch?
There is an issue regarding the problem with "Create project with shared configuration", it feels like a bug to me that no board was created when using shared configuration. And you can't even add the board to the project directly inside the project.
Atlassian ranks project attributes as the third most important factor impacting performance in the category of data. It’s not surprising, since project attributes are precisely the rules used to ma...
