How do I add a " due dates" swim lane for all projects

TAG Admin April 19, 2024

I'm wanting to add a swim lane for tasks that have a due date approaching (or past) in 3 days. I want this to be for all projects. 

 

Thank you!

Hello @TAG Admin 

A board (where swimlanes exist) is just a way to visualize and manipulate issues in projects. Each board has its own configuration independent of all other boards, and that includes the configuration of the board's swimlanes.

So, swimlanes don't apply to "projects". Swimlanes apply to boards.

And there is no option to set the swimlanes for all boards globally.

You will have to change each board to include such swimlanes. To have the swimlane you want you will have to change the boards' Swimlanes setting to Queries and define the JQL to create the swimlane you want. After doing that, the board will no longer show swimlanes for Epics or Stories.

Note also that you can't define custom swimlanes in Team Managed projects' boards.

Thank you! Responding for TAG Admin,

I'm thinking of configuring one board that filters in all projects and then creating a swim lane to show case tasks that are due or will be due within 3 days

 

something like this (though I know this is wrong, haha):

If you could help me write the correct code for this that'd be awesome!!

 

Thanks!

Hello @Natalia Linchenko 

When you say "tasks that are due" do you mean the due date is set to today (the current date)?

Do you want all these tasks displayed in one swimlane?

What if the tasks have a due date in the past, or are due in 4 days or later?

If you want task with a due date in the range of today through end of day three calendar days from now, the quick filter JQL you would use is:

duedate >= startOfDay() and duedate <= endOfDay(3d)

Test that in the View All Issues screen to see if that gets you the results you expect. For today's date it should retrieve all issues where Due Date is one of the following:

24 April 2024

25 April 2024

26 April 2024

27 April 2024

"When you say "tasks that are due" do you mean the due date is set to today (the current date)?" -

Yes - task with a due date set for today or dates that have already passed. 

 

I would want it to also show tasks that are past their due date as well... can you help me add this into the JQL code?

If you want everything due three days from the current date or sooner or in the past then use:

duedate <= endOfDay(3d)
