Hi, I am in the process of setting up Jira and Jira Portfolio on an "all-in" arrangement. We are a small web publisher, but have multiple non-development Project Management stuff that is badly handled right now - have looked at Asana, Wrike, etc. - even Trello - as solutions to that stuff, but in the end I think the entire Atlassian suite and its customizability will be the best for us.
We are taking our time setting up, and have been looking at boards as a great cornerstone of Jira. I have been disappointed however to find out that it appears Boards, with their cross-project functionality I was counting on, have now gotten rolled up into projects so that there is no view of boards on their own.
I have read these articles about that closely, here:
deep within the 19 comments there are multiple users talking of the same issue.
I am trying to figure out a basic situation - which project should a board belong to if it has cross project items? That seems less than obvious in most cases that I will be using. The big issue for me is it seems like a real burden to first have to navigate within particular projects to see the boards in each, without the benefit of an overall "board view." As a newcomer to Jira, I'd be glad to get some advice how I can surface a view with all boards in one place outside the projects where they are now forced to reside.
