Prompts in filters


Does anyone know if you can build in a prompt to quick filters?  I have seen the articles on creating a filter and then allowing the user to run that filter and change a value, but this is not helpful when using quick filters in a classic project backlog board.

Hi Simon - I am not aware of any way to provide prompts in filters in Jira Cloud. 

Can you give more of a scenario of what you are wanting to achieve? 

Hi @John Funk 


Of course.

We have a Classic SCRUM project using a main filter to view across multiple projects the team works on.

However, the only option you have in a classic project when viewing the Backlog or Active sprint boards are the quick filters created under board settings:

Whilst this is useful, it lacks the ability for me to create a prompt, for example for a specific project you wish to see at the time of running the quick filter.  By default I can use the team members to filter down, but i want to be able to see what everyone is doing or planning to do on a specific project, without having to navigate away from the unified view project.

Hope this explains the situation.

Yep, I understand. The only way we have been able to do that is create a quick filter for each project. If there are a lot of projects, then sometimes grouping them somewhat to at least cut down on the volume returned.
