I want to see the Backlog Column of a Kanban board on a Dashboard.

I am very new so forgive me if I am asking a simple question! 

I added a gadget to a dashboard to (Agile Wallboard Gadget) so that I could show my Kanban board to my stakeholders.

This worked fine until my backlog column got so big that Jira has separated it out.  This works well for me when viewing the boards but I need the stakeholders to be able to see the backlog column somehow on their dashboard.


I am not sure how to make it visible.


Thanks!  Jane

You could display the Backlog content via a filter list gadget using a filter of empty active sprint. However if you Backlog is large I’m unsure that becomes effective for a wallboard.
