Can a singular JIRA Agile Kanban Board show two sets of columns?

Chris77 Mar 16, 2017

Hi team

Here is my problem (actively avoided using the word "issue" for obvious reasons!)...

I have two separate Kanban boards that have the same number of columns (6) but each represents a different yet related workflow/process. I would like to make a combined Kanban board but I'm not keen on simply expanding columns horizontally from 6 to 12 as the board becomes illegible and visually confusing.

If I could literally “glue” my 2 existing Kanban board one above the other, it would give me the view I’m looking for…..has anyone worked out a way to do this without referring to paper mashie?

Share columns in a third board (don't get rid of the other two, they are useful)

Let's say you have

  • Board 1, with columns  A, B, C, D, E, done
  • Board 2, with columns 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, done

Create Board 3, with six columns - A+1, B+2, C+3, D+4, E+5, done (F+6)

Then, to be really sneaky, use a swimlane definition to separate the issues on board 1 from those on board 2...
