How do I group the Board on priority

Hi all,

How can I group/rank the items in the board so that highest priority is on the top for each column?

Hi @Andreas Köhler 

As @Walter Buggenhout mentioned, which product are we referring to and is it team or company managed.

As its related to team managed, there is no option to sort by priority only company managed projects in JSW and JWM are able to be configured to your requirement

The solution given by @Jerrold - Empyra and @Dexter de Vera are correct, but only apply to company managed projects.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for this comment. It is actually team managed. Thanks for letting me know. That's sad. Tasks should IMO always be sortable by priority as this is the reason why priorities are used in the first place.

Hi @Andreas Köhler,

Can you add what type of project (team managed or company managed) you are using and what product (Jira Software, Work Management, Service Management or Product Discovery)?

Hi @Andreas Köhler 

 

You can  create a swimlane for the highest priority. This will show the highest priority tickets in the top for every column. 

To configure swimlanes 

Project board > configure board > swimlane > select queries in the dropdown > create swimlane

give the name and the jql as follows

You can see in the below image that the highest priority tickets are shown at the top

Thank you.

If you want to rank it, you may update your board filter and ORDER it too the "priority"

e.i.

project = Test Project ORDER BY priority DESC, created DESC

Or if you want to group the tickets. you can create swimlanes base in query.

list down all the priority.

e.i.

Go to board settings - swimlanes - select queries then Create swimlanes

Name        JQL query

Highest      priority = Highest

Low            priority = Low

-----etc.  (list down all the priority you have in your instance)
