I'm trying out Jira Work Management for our Communications team.
I'm used to using Jira Software and in that platform I use some boards to manage items from multiple projects, defining a filter that includes issues from all the ones I need.
I have not found this option in Jira Work Management.
Our team manages several project at the same time and it would be useful to use that.
If that's not possible, what are the best practices for managing issues in multiple projects?
Do we need to use Jira Software?
Hi @Maurizio Papa ,
You can create a board and use a filter that includes multiple projects - including JWM projects. It does not have to be a JWM board.
Create your filter as you like - something like: Project in (ABC, DEF, 123) order by Rank
Be sure to share the filter if the board will be seen by people other than you.
Then create a Kanban board based on an existing filter and choose the filter you just created.
The only trick is the Location field - you select Your Profile for that or one of the projects in your filter, if one of them is a Company-managed project. If they are all JWM projects, then you would need to use your profile for the Location field or another generic Company-managed project (which is what I do in those cases).
The cards/issues shown on the board have nothing to do with the Location - only with the filter, so the Location is kind of a non-issue.
Then modify the columns as you want.
Hi @John Funk ,
thank you for the answer.
Creating a Kanban Board is not possible, though, in JWM projects, is it?
That means I'd have my team to register both Jira Software and JWM and then use a Jira Software Project to add a Kanban with a filter that includes also my JWM projects.
That is what I actually did, but I was wondering if there was a way to do that with JWM alone.
