Organizing List and Timeline

Is there a way to do any of the following to help me better organize work in the List and Timeline features in Classic Kanban?

  1. Group the issues in the list by epic
  2. Use JQL to filter

Hi Alfred - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately, neither of those things is currently possible for Jira Work Management (Business) projects. 

Thanks!  Hope this gets on their roadmap for new features.

For you to view by epico click on the board settings, access and perform the settings below:

When accessing the board, this will be the view with the issues below in their respective columns

If you still need to organize your query by JQL, just apply one of the following expressions to the end of the query you already use.

ORDER BY issuetype ASC - to sort alphabetically from A-Z
ORDER BY issuetype DESC - To sort alphabetically from Z-A

Thanks!  This is exactly what I'm hoping to do...but I think the feature is not yet present in the List or Timeline.  It works great on the board though.

For the list or timeline concept this is not possible yet.

A similar view to this would be roadmaps, available for Scrum projects in Jira Software.

But I'm glad the plate concept helped you.
