Having different colors for status in Jira Agile Dashboard columns

Hello,

In my Jira Agile dashboard, I have 4 columns

To Do

In Progress

QA

Done

In the QA column, we have 2 status :

Code Review

User Review

Is there a graphical way to distinguish issues in "Code Review" from issues in "User Review" ? Like a color to set somewhere or ... ? I don't see any way to do this, and it is quite confusing for the users.

Apart from the moment the user drags and drops the issue into the QA column (then you see a dashed frame around each status zone while you hold the mouse button), and apart from the fact you can allways see the issue status in the issue detail panel, I can't find a way so that users can see that in a glance when looking at the dashboard.

Anyone facing this ?

thanks :)

Jess

On a board, go to configure -> colours and choose to base the card colours on queries, then you'll need a query for each status/colour.

I don't think that flows into the gadget too well though.

This workaround does the job Nic, thanks. Just too bad it has to replace something existing and also usefull (card colours based on issue types).
