Lists and Boards in Premium Overview

Amanda Seaman February 13, 2024

I'm trialling JWM Premium at the moment, I was hoping it would be worth getting for the Overviews feature.  It only has Summary, Calendar and Timeline though.  Any news on if and when Board and List will be added to the Overview?

Hi Amanda,

The Board and the List are intended to show details of individual cards/issues. The Summary is intended to be just that - a Summary. I can't imagine Atlassian would add those items to the Summary.

What is it that you are trying to achieve? And have you considered creating a Dashboard that might provide what you are looking for?

Hi John

This is in the JWM Premium version, there is an Overview where you can add multiple Projects.  The tabs are only the Summary, Timeline and Calendar tabs though, and the timeline just lists items, they're not nested under the relevant project.  

I've set up different business area teams as 'Projects' but when there are multiple teams under one manager, I was hoping the Overviews would create a better snapshot for the manager.  I'm using Dashboards which is ok but not as dynamic.

Hi @Amanda Seaman

I'm not aware of any plans here - but mind that you can already create both cross-project boards and cross-project list views with a bit of trickery and some additional tooling. 

For a cross-project board, you should be able to create a Kanban board in Jira Software, based on a filter that includes the issues from your relevant JWM projects.

For a cross-project list view, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. In a sense, it has a few things in common with JWM's list view, however JXL comes with many advanced features, and also works across any number of projects. These projects can be JWM projects, but also projects of any other project type.

This is how it looks in action:


Just like e.g. boards in JSW, every JXL sheet is ultimately based on a JQL statement or a saved filter - so you have full flexibility over which issues you want to include. Once you've created your sheet, you can apply e.g. (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting.

Any questions just let me know,
