Ah, found it.
Your "open" status is in your "Done" column. That means it doesn't need planning for because it's done, so it doesn't appear in the backlog. When you move it to "inProcess", it appears because it's no longer "done"
I'd reconfigure the board - move "open" into the "to do" column on the left.
I think your workflow is fine for organising stuff, although I don't know your desired processes. As for subtasks, they're for breaking up a piece of work into smaller pieces - I wouldn't try to plan or estimate on them, they're more for developers thought processes for "this is a big piece, let's get it down into chunks we can allocate to different people". For items that are going to take weeks or months, consider using Epics for them - Agile Scrum tends to want you to work in sprints, and not have items that are bigger than a sprint.
The filter is very basic: project = "Digital Rain Bucket and Anemometer" ORDER BY due
Here's what I did:
Ok, great example, lots of data to work with :-) Now some quick config questions: - What, exactly, is the filter for the board? - Is "Open" mapped to a column on your board? (I don't think this is an issue at all, but I'd like to check) And then the non-config questions: - If you click "Agile -> view on board" on the invisible one, where does it take you? - What do you mean by "start work"? What changes? What do you do to DRBA-43 that makes it appear in the backlog?
project = "Digital Rain Bucket and Anemometer" ORDER BY due
To make DRBA-43 to show up I clicked on Miscellaneous ( or Design) and the status changed to “InProcess”. I’m fairly unclear on the use of WorkFlow and SubTasks to organize a mechanical project where tasks take several weeks to complete.
Hello there! I guess I found the solution to your problem! (after 5 years! :)) but I hope someone would make use of it!) I faced the same problem when I changed my workflow!
To fix it, simply go to: board settings > Columns
Here, make sure that no status exists in the " Unmapped statuses " column!
Any issue with an unmapped status WILL NOT show up in the backlog!
