Dear all, here is a thing I am struggling since a while. During my job I happen to have regular meetings with a group of people, where we discuss what they are working on, which is usually tasks across different projects.
So, I would like to visualize under the same board this group of people and the tasks they are working on. This seems to be possible, but what looks weird to me (at least the way I do it), is that I have to "host" the board in a specific project.
I would expect boards and projects to be handled separately.
Said in other words. A projects can involve different teams collaborating, while a team can be involved in different projects. A manager could be interested either in
What do you think? Is this manageable in Jira and I am missing how to do it? If yes, could you tell me how? Or am I seeing things wrong and there is a reason why Jira does not allow to have team boards that are not tight to a project?
Thanks in advance for any of your inputs!
Dear @Phill Fox, thanks for your prompt reply!
I am indeed using company managed projects, but when i create a board (see image), it always asks to define a location for the board, and the location seems to be a project. This seems confusing to me, as then I have a project that is different from the other ones, as it is "the one hosting the board". While in my mind all the projects are at the same level. What do you think?
@Emanuele Bellini If you look at the Location field you can choose to host it in a project (which is appropriate if you are looking at only some issues on a project) or within your own profile. This latter option is a better match for what you were asking for a board that cuts across multiple projects but is not owned by an individual one.
Many people do not spot that option as they just see all the project names when they have a filter across projects.
If this has answered your query would you mind marking this as answered so any other folks looking for this will easily find the resolution.
Sorry my fault I did not spot this was raised as a discussion rather than a question. So there is no way to mark it as answered.
