How to display column titles for the issues when in list view of planning board

When viewing the issues in Planning board, and the view mode is List (not card or summary) then each line shows a single issue (e.g. single user story).

Although this is a table-like view, no column titles are available, making it difficult to guess the goal of each field
(unless pointing and viewing the tooltip)

Is there a way to add table header with the titles of all columns at the top of the page?

Readers, please vote if you also feel that this is important...

Tal, there is currently no way to do this in the product.

Issue-types can be configured independently and so a table header would not necessarily reflect the columns below for all issue-types, that would only work if all issue-types had the same fields in the same sequence.

To help with identifying the field we added title attributes (like a tooltip) which either state the field-type or the action if clicked e.g. Edit Reporter.

I hope this helps answer your question,



Thanks. It answers, but puts it in a dead end. IMHO this is far from acceptable in a professional product. I recommend to consider having a way to show only a list of a single type of issue in the planning board (e.g. list only user stories,only bugs,etc) and in such case the limitation mentioned (conflict of possible different field formats) will be gone and it will be possible to display a clearly visual header to the list as in normal tables (which do exist in competing commercial products). BTW - is this something that anyone can offer as a plugin??? volunteers are welcome! regards, Tal
Tal, thanks for your suggestion. Please create an issue for this request if it is something you would like to see in the GreenHopper product: Thanks Martin
