How to display many columns on the board.



We have set many workflow steps.
Therefore, many columns on the board are thin.

Show all columns with the right width and manage it side-scrolling.
How can we widen the column?
Is there a way to set it wider?

Project type : Corporate managed software

Use workflow scheme.





There's no way to change the display width of the columns I'm afraid

Thank you for quick comment's!

The columns are wide when we create them under team management. 

If you know, would you please let us know?
Difference in column width between team administrator authority and administrator authority

Best Regard,


There's no way to change it, as I said.

Team-management is a different chunk of software with a slightly different design and purpose.

I understand !!

"Team management understood that it was a different chunk of software with slightly different designs and purposes."
Thank you so much.
I will consider it with the members.

Like Nic already said there is no option to adjust the width.

I am just wondering if just in your screenshot a good portion of the columns were empty - or if they are not needed. If not needed you could remove them to gain a bit free space.

Also, as a potential solution: you can map more than one workflow status to a column. This could also help to reduce the amount of space needed on the screen.

There is just no way out of this misery if you:
- need to keep all columns like they are
- business requirements do not allow to map several status onto fewer columns
