I'm pretty sure that this is not possible. At least not in a default Jira instance but I'm also not aware of any apps adding this functionality. So more than the three little lozenges with the color of the status categories and your story point estimations in the upper right will be difficult. Sorry about that!
Do you really need that column? Basically every issue in the backlog should still be something like a "To Do" while you can get an overview of the other issues and their status on the board in the active sprint. Have you thought about using a dashboard?
It would be super helpful if the columns were configurable. Having the status view is more important than seeing any other column for me. I use this backlog view for prioritization. If I noticed something isn't ready for dev, than I work on details to get it groomed before sprint planning.
I agree that you should be careful with adding columns to your backlog as a general rule of thimb, but taking e.g. the Component element into consideration it would actually be very helpful to have the possibility to add this to the cloumn section of the backlog for priority reasons.
I know that it is possile to add as a field, but to be honest, adding a field kind of destroys the usability (look&Feel) in the backlog overview - in my oppinion.
So - Is there a way to add columns? Thanks
