I created 3 custom fields for testing:

custom-listsingle

custom-listmultiple

custom-singletext

  • All 3 were added to the project screens

When going to my test project and clicking "list" view on the left, I can't add the list custom fields to the columns, but I can add custom-singletext. 

Is there a reason why list fields can't be on the project list view? I can do this functionality if I click "issues" and add the custom fields or create a filter. 

Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Not all custom field types are available yet for the List view in JWM projects. The Atlassian development team has that on their roadmap to finish out, but I am not aware of the timeline for it. 

You can send a request to this email to voice your wishes: jwm-eap@atlassian.com

Thanks for the quick response. I figured it was a limitation but just wanted to make sure.

Hi Jonathan,

As John wrote, the JWM team are still adding further custom field support.

If you're after a list/table/spreadsheet view that supports all your standard fields and custom field types, I suggest you check out JXL. This is how it will look like:

And here's a quick overview and comparison of currently supported fields by JWM, JXL, etc. that I wrote recently. Hope this helps.

Additionally, JXL offers all sorts of great features btw, such as copy/pasting fields, multiple JQL-based sheets per project, export, support for all Jira products/project types...
