Overarching overview board of all Scrum and Kanban teams Edited



in my Project im working with multiple teams with separate boards, scrum and kanban.


For transparency reasons I´m wondering, if it´s possible to have an overarching overview board of all teams where I can see the status of all the stories and tasks etc. in a big overview.


Can any of you help me here?


Thanks in advance!

Hello @mnayeb 

My advice is to create and save a filer that will cover all you desire and then create a board and apply this filter to it.


You can combine all of your desired board's filter into one and apply it to a new board.

Filter what you need and apply it to a new board.

Hey Olga,


thanks for the advice!


I will give this a try!

Hello Maziar,

The quick answer is YES, you can do that, all you need to do is add all the desired projects to the 'overview' board. Of course, now comes the 'warnings';

It can be confusing for some folks to mix sprint/kanban projects on the same board.

It can be challenging to sort out the column labels if there are radically different workflows.

It can be v-e-r-y large and have so many issues it's hard to use.


That said, we do use that very approach for some of the multi-projects in my shop.

Let me know if you have problems or specific issues with this and I'll try to help 

Hey Tom,


thanks for your advice!


I´ll try some things and get back to you if needed!

Let's assume we have 4 different projects to include. Two are sprint driven, 2 are Kanban. Here's what the filter might look like:

(project in (Project 1,Project 2) AND Sprint in openSprints() OR project in (Project A,ProjectB)) ORDER BY Rank ASC

This insures that in projects that are sprint driven, only issues in the active sprints are displayed

You may also want to use a sub-filter for the kanban projects to remove old released issues:

fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY  


Hope this helps

The problem here is, we just have one Project, that contains multiple different boards. And I want to sum up these boards. 

So no Project 1,2 or A,B, just one Project.

Hi @mnayeb ,

I wrote an article about this not too long ago, here is a link.

Hope this helps, 



Love the opening of your article!

Hey Guys!


I have one more question to the issue above.


Heres our Situation:

We have 14-day-sprints and teams with separate boards operating in either scrum or kanban.


What I want:

An overarching board with all stories and tasks that are planned or being worked on in this 14-day-sprints (both scrum and kanban) of all teams.


It´s somehow super hard to create an appropriate filter for that....


Do you have any hints here?
