Hard to say, now we're heavily redesigning the app itself and preparing for Jira 8.
Afterwards we'll look into the backlog split. If it is implementable, it may be ready in 3-4 months from now.
Could you drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post here detailed requirements including a screen mockup? Just draw it using a pen and take a photo :)
I'd like to make sure we're talking about the same thing.
Hi @Cindy Ticha
We've got that on our list but we've been working couple months to release a Jira 8 compatible version. The feature itself seems to be nice to have, but I can see some use cases behind it.
The question would be how do we display it on the backlog. Separate statuses? All in one called "Tasks on the board". It will definitely slowdown the backlog itself, as we would have to load a lot of issues to backlog every-time you refresh the page.
@Cindy Ticha but then if you look at the board there are no statuses but columns.
Columns may have multiple statuses. Another issue is the order of statuses sections. We'd have to create a configuration or a drag & drop ability save settings and so on. That seems to be a super complex task.
In my opinion a section "Active issues" (similar to Active sprints) including a Status labels for each issue would do the trick. If you'd be interested in a single status you could use the top filtering bar.
What do you think?
Anyway what would you say to become the sponsor of this feature? Drop me an email on email@example.com and I'll send you all the details.
This is an obvious requirement. I'm astonished it's not already there.
Clearly the top status on the Kanban backlog should show the group of stories in a Ready (or "Selected for Development") state, ie refined, ready to be worked on and also visible on the Kanban board. This we already have.
Below that we should be able to group by more than one status, to reflect whatever workflow states stories go through before making it to the Ready state. That might include "Ideas", "Futures", "Next Release" or whatever pre-Ready states we may have.
@Tim Haynes, while I could see where this would be a useful feature I don't necessarily see it as an obvious requirement. However, clearly you do so would suggest you have a look at JAC and search for an existing request or open one. I performed a quick JQL search but did not see anything. Also, something makes me think that I saw reference to an addon app that might allow you to customize the backlog but again I could not find anything. You might want to have a look at the Marketplace regardless.
Me and my teams are also trying to find out how it´s possible to set up the sections in Kanban board, something similar to what you can do with sprints in Scrum backlog. For example, we need a section "ready for refinement" and "ready for planning" to visualize our flow of the tickets before they are selected to be worked on.
Examples of the "sections" are attached.
Are there any news on that?
Thanks in advance!
If you run a Kanban board and you go to the backlog there are two sections, the Board and the Backlog. The request is to be able to add an additional section/separation i.e. Priority Issues, or Issues to be Estimated. Where issues that are not being worked on but need to prioritized out of the backlog can live.
If you have an extensive backlog it can get overwhelming trying to categorize or section out key issues to focus on. I believe in the past there was a way to do that by adding "extra sprints" and just renaming them and never starting them. But I don't see that functionality anymore and I think it has a lot to do with not being able to have a Kanban and Scrum board at the same time on the same project.
