Make visible tasks in the backlog only if they are approved

we have the following workflow:



Is there any way to show only the tasks that have achieved the BACKLOG status in the backlog view?

Your backlog is actually a different view of your board, and works off the same filter.

So, what you could do is alter the board filter.  Instead of "Project = X order by rank", use "Project = X and status not in (<the status before backlog>) order by rank"

There may be other ways to do this, but it's the simplest one for you, given what you've said.

If you do it this way, you'll need to look at a way to handle the issues that will no longer appear in the backlog or board.  I'd be tempted to look at adding a second board - Kanban, with columns for each status up to backlog, one column next with most of the rest of the status in it (representing "people are working on it in the main dev board") and then "Done" containing rejected and resolved.

Awesome! thanks!

Hi @Daniel Lopez , 

You can update the filter of your board. so it will have tickets of certain statuses (as per your requirement)


If you want to exclude certain status , you update query like..

status not in (Approved,"on hold")
