Make my board horizontal scrollable in Jira Cloud

I have a business-board with a lot of columns (18). Right now all columns are visible without the need of scrolling left or right. As you can imagine, it is impossible to read or to work with this board (see attached image).

Is it possible to add some style-macros or setting the maximum number of columns visible in/on view?

Hi @Fabian Hagen,

Currently it's not possible to scroll horizontally on a board. Best practice would be to set up a board with a maximum of 6 columns and remove any unnecessary statuses if possible.

My suggestion would be to break up your one board into several boards, depending on a particular user who needs to action a status change / update. For example, I have 1 board for the development team and once they move the issue status into the QA it appears on another board for the QA team to monitor and action, hopefully transitioning the issue into Closed.   

Are you able to break up your board so that different depts/key people only need to monitor "their" statuses?

Hope this helps

@[deleted] Hi, to create 4 boards you need to create 4 projects? Thanks, Claire

Hi @Claire Whiteley,

You can create multiple boards on 1 project. 

Hope this helps

@[deleted] Thanks for reply.

Is it also possible on Jira Core? Thanks,
