Swimlanes for Jira WM?

Emily Bell December 17, 2021

Hi all,

How can I configure swimlanes in JWM? I'm trying to create a board where multiple departments will add issues and we want to see swimlanes, especially visual color cues, at the board level to see it grouped by department. 

 

I've looked into all the fields, and troubleshooted for hours but I can't figure out how to do this. 

 

Is this possible?

Hi @Emily Bell indeed there are no swimlanes on the board for JWM at the moment but you can "group" items on the list view and we'll be adding more options to group by in the upcoming weeks. 

Can you please check this out and lmk if this answers your need?

Hi Ron, Thanks for getting back to me. It would be so awesome to have swimlanes in JWM, so will look forward to when you are able to roll out that feature!

 

In the meantime, I've used groups (and filters) however it looks like 'groups' uses 3 standard settings - status, assignee, and priority. Is there a way to add more or customize this? 

Thanks!

Thanks.  I also checked on my cloud instance and there are no configs available on jwm boards.

Hi @Emily Bell ,

Thank you for reaching out! I’m Jane, one of the Product Managers on the Jira Work Management team.

We’re currently testing out a new grouping concept on the board that's quite different from swimlanes. If you’re interested in being involved, feel free to book in some time in my calendar here: https://calendly.com/jyeoh/45min . We’d love to run through with you some designs and prototype that could help improve the way work is organised in your business boards.

Looking forward to hearing back,

Jane

Make sure you JQL Queries to identify the different deparments.

Regards.

HiFabian - thanks for the quick reply. I have read this article but when I go to the 'more....board settings' to review how to configure swimlanes, there's no option.

I guess this is not available for jwm projects then.
