Hi Kiran,

If you click on the magnifying glass on the left hand side and then select Advanced search for Boards at the bottom, that will take you to a list of all boards.

At that point you can search for a board that you want to copy, click the 3 dot menu to the right of the board and select Copy.

Or you can simple click the Create board button on the top right of the page. 

Perfect :) Many thanks

Which of the following best conveys what you are trying to do?

  1. add issues from project B to an existing Kanban that currently displays Issues from project A.
  2. create a new Kanban board that has project A and project B issues.
  3. or something else.

in #1 you would edit the filter of the existing Kanban board via Board settings > general. In #2 you could Create board in the view all boards screen.

I did following steps

1. I created new project

2. Selected Kanban template


Now i want to add all issues from another project say project B. How to do this?


Second scenario 


I already have existing project say project B. How can i add kanban board in it because it doesnt have any board
