How can I filter a List, Calendar or Timeline?


I have a large number of issues within a JWM project, but I want to visualise only a subset of these in the List, Calendar or Timeline views, based on the issue labels. For example, I only want to see issues that are assigned to Alice, Bob and Charlie, issues before a certain date or issues that have a specific item checked in a multi-select box.

Is there a way to do this within the native JWM views, either directly or view Jira Filters?

Hi @Oliver Fritz , we have now added filters (with quick filters + advanced filters) to the list, calendar, and timeline views. Let me know what you think of the new filters when you try them out!

Are there plans to provide filters other than the current options (assignee, status, issue type)?  I have a Business Development team, for instance, that would like to track multiple events in a single JWM project, perhaps categorizing them by labels or components.  However, there is currently no way to see a filtered List view on the basis of either label or component, so I'm forced to fall back to a Jira Software team-managed project, where I can leverage epics for subdividing work.

Yes, absolutely. We're currently building out support for these other types of fields and you should see improvements in the next month or so.

hi @Chase Wilson - any update on when filter view will be added to the Timeline? thanks

@David Gaskell great timing, you should start to see those filters live starting next week! Here's what they look like (two-phase filter that encompasses quick filters and custom filters together):

@Chase Wilson thanks Chase, that's good to hear. Do you know which day I can expect to see this? I am based in the UK. Will they appear automatically after a refresh or will the administrator need to perform some kind of action to enable them?

@David Gaskell we do a gradual rollout for features, meaning that a new percentage of users will receive filters every day! You can expect to see filters live by the end of the week PST.

This feature will become live with a simple page refresh, no admin interaction needed. Cheers!

@Chase Wilson  Hello Chase, I still don't see the filters unfortunately. Can you offer any update or advice?



@Chase Wilson Great to hear that timeline + calendar views also got enhanced with the Filter options. Still missing them on our Jira cloud solution, though. When will this be rolled out globally? Would reaaaaaally make a world of difference for us in getting value out of these views. Thanks so much!

Adding to the stream as it would be great to have labels added to the more filters option.

Also, would there be any plans to be able to add your customer fields to this list?

Hi @Chase Wilson

Any idea when more filters as suggested above (e.g. components) will be available for the list, board, timelime and calendar view? Or is it somehow possible to generate quick filters for those views?

Hi @Chase Wilson , I am looking for the same feature. Until now, no filter is visible in the Timeline view.

Any visibility as well on the possibility to filter using any field? My company is leveraging Insight for JSM and we need to filter the timeline view using insight custom fields.


Thank you

Hi @Yohann , strange – filters should now be rolled out to 100% of our timeline views. Do you mind checking in again later today or tomorrow to see if they're visible?

Hi @Chase Wilson

no more luck today. Filters are available on the "List" view, but not on the "Timeline" view.

In the filter on the List view, I can see also few fields can be used to filter issues. Is there a way to use custom fields to filter?

Thank you 

Checking to see if they're just not rolled out to 100% of the population yet. This is what the feature looks like on the timeline view. Filtering on custom fields isn't yet supported on the list, but you can do so in the global Filters section in the top navigation bar.

Still not seeing the ability to filter by Label (or even better, the ability to develop quick filters using JQL).  Is that in the works?  Is there an enhancement request I can add my vote to?

@Chase Wilson Can you confirm when filtering on custom fields will be available on the list or timeline views? This will allow a lot more flexibility in viewing scenarios when planning.
