Hello @roy_king ,

Welcome to the community!

1. How to change color of columns?

What does color mean here? Can you upload a screenshot?

2. Can I change order of columns?

Drag directly in the column.


Like thise8ef15ef.pngI want to change background color.

@roy_king - As per my understanding we can't colour code column.

Having said that you may try use card color option to highlight specific tickets matching required criteria using JQL.

Hi Roy - No, you cannot change the color of the entire column. Only the left hand-side of the individual card. 

Hi John, how I can do that?
